      Hi all,

      Just wishing to solicit some advice: does anyone have experience going to football? Have the opportunity to go see Chelsea Stoke this afternoon. Will take earplugs and muffs - will this be safe and adequate protection?

      Thanks all,

      Elfin

      The guy who leads our support group still goes to football matches. He gets a spike for a couple of days but he loves football, so he is not bothered by this.
      I personally haven't been to a match since getting T but then I am more of a rugby fan. I only watch rugby on TV. Maybe one day I'll brave it and go to a match. Looking forward to the 6 nations championship in Feb-Mar 18, as Scotland have been playing well, now ranked no.5 in the world. Roll on Springtime.

      I’ve been to both football and rugby matches. I just take my earplugs nowadays. A football match is nowhere near the risk of say a rock concert or a nightclub. Before my T got worse I wouldn’t have even considered a football match to be dangerously loud, as my ears never rang after a match. Yet they always did after attending concerts and clubs.

      I am going to one soon but i will be in the hospitality suite although i do get a seat in the main stand for the game. That said it is a Charlton game and the attendance isn't great these days so it won't be that loud.

      you plan on wearing earplugs? was loud when the goals went in, but otherwise ok.

      Odd sensation with the earmuffs as sound that was far away seemed clear and and 'nearer'. Still, enjoyable and fighting against convincing myself that I have made this all worse!

      I'll take them with me but i can't imagine it being loud enough in the hospitality area and the seat I get for the game. The fans that sing sit in one of the other stands.

      I went to one this weekend, put the plugs in when it got a bit too loud but on the whole feel like I came out unscathed.

      You can white list football matches for my part
