Road To Euro 2016 will have 2 different versions as Pavle already sayed: stickers and trading cards. In Italy i know already will be available only one type, still not confirmed which one... Honestly here stickers have much more market than cards, so I think in Italy will be stickers. Probably Usa and maybe Uk the cards, for big markets like Germany i suppose both..

@Caniggia Here in Portugal is the same as Italy, so most likely we'll have also sticker collection.

@bassem Thank you for all the info you've been providing for the RTUE collections :) Indeed, cover design seems nice, but I just hope the stickers will not be the same as RTWC 2014... Bigger than WC or Euro stickers, but paper is thinner and with less quality image... Is it too much to ask for stickers like they release in national leagues?

Also curious about the teams that will be in the album... RTWC 2014 only had the teams with more chances to be in WC and I understand it's almost impossible to have more than 200 nations there (though a serbian collection did it, I think), but it would be nice to have at least a badge and team photo for every european country.

Agree with you 100%

i agree with @dantzig ... at least badge of all national teams like San Marino, Gibilterra etc etc ... I could die! :)
You confused me for a second with Gibilterra, then I realized it was probably Gibraltar... It's fun to know these language differences ;)

Anyway, I was against Gibraltar being in this qualification, as they're not a ratified country... This could lead to more and more exceptions... But then again, many countries got their independence in the last 30, 40 years, mostly due to SSSR and Yugoslavia, almost doubling european countries... Maybe Gibraltar is next, though this reminds me of someone saying "a country for every person!" But if every country is represented in the album, Gibraltar also has to be.

@dantzig yes Gibilterra is Gibraltar.. now I know :)

having a national team is an enormous supporting for own nationality and "indipendence", in the future maybe we could have other not standard countries like Gibraltar. There is also a World Cup for these countries not part of Fifa, also PADANIA from Italy... Padania is north Italy, promoted by party Lega Nord, but it does make any sense at all. Other countries have more rights to have a national team but I will stop here, because is not my aim to start a discussion about politics ideas or similars. In the album RTEC there could also national teams that are not exactly europeans ... BUT thinking just about our passion, if we have stickers or badges never seen before is always a pleasure ;)

There is a WC for "want-to-be-a-independent-country"? Interesting... I know that sometimes, Cataluña in Spain plays some matches, but never realized if there were others... Do you know some website talking about it?

Anyway, it would be great to have all teams in this album, but my pessimistic rib tells me it will not have, at least, the weaker teams... And again, it probably has to do with licensing.

Like Caniggia is not my aim to talk about politics. Here you have a FAKE edition of Panini South Africa 2010 with Catalonia. Many players won the World cup with "Spain":(
There is an organization that promotes Catalonia all sports federations to join the international federations (http://www.seleccions.cat/). Many minority sports federations have admitted Catalonia, but that time is unthinkable in major sports like football, basketball or Olympic sports.
While one day a year Catalan Football Federation arrange a friendly International game. Normally is at Christmas time. This year was against other "non exist" federation: basque country Euskadi-catalunya 2014 (http://www.mundodeportivo.com/20141...en-el-partido-del-centenario_54422189959.html)
Ups! i told you i don't want to talk about politics...
Good luck for all teams the next Euro 2016. Well who can play, of course!

@Caniggia Thanks, I know Monaco and Iraqi Kurdistan, but only those... Thought I would see there also Catalunya or Basque country.

How about Vatican? They're a ratified country, right? So, they could also play in these UEFA qualifications, couldn't they? Or are they afraid of hurting others? Hehehe :p

@stickersCat I think everyone should write about whatever they want, as long as it has to do with this matter and if Gibraltar is allowed to be in this qualification, then every region of a country that have some support to be independent can also be included in this.

My only "fear" is that I'm seeing Europe being more and more divided. This small continent, the smallest of the world, has more countries than any other continent, even Asia, which has half of the world's population... I'm always wondering if we are so different to the point of creating a new country... The Ukraine-Russia conflict, for example.

But stickersCat, I do understand your position as a catalan, I also wouldn't like Spain to be in control of Portugal again :\

Saw now that Vatican is 1 of 9 countries that don't belong to FIFA... And their FA chairman said why: “I prefer to be amateur...To join FIFA, at that level, will be like a business”... I could be so sarcastic with the "business", both including FIFA and Vatican, but I won't.

I know how Italy was so divided at Renaissance period (and Rome/Vatican was the major power there), thanks to Assassin's Creed game and Da Vinci Demons tv series :p But I know nothing else.

Wait, what? You played which part first? Because AC 3 is not really the third game released:
AC1 - Altair story (Crusades setup);
AC2, Brotherhood & Revelations - Ezio story (Renaissance setup);
AC3 - Connor story (US Independence War setup);
AC4 - Kenway story (Golden Age of Piracy setup);
AC Unity - Dorian story (French Revolution setup);

And some others less important... Whatever you chose to play first, AC3 or Brotherhood, you deserve a bitch slap! Even though there are different main characters, they are all related to the main story of Desmond Miles.

Btw, I just played the first 3, so I still need to get Revelations, to at least finish Ezio story lol
