No interest in going to Toronto btw. Anyone but Toronto for promotion please.

The when becomes an issue, as the whole point is that fans want to see all the games, which means being in situ for Saturday lunchtime and being able to leave late Sunday. So the "when" becomes a bank holiday.
As for the "where", the airport has to be able to cope with the influx of maybe thirty thousand fans, so common sense would say Barcelona, particularly as it is served by more than one airport.
If it has to be in France, Perpignan is probably out. There are places like Avignon, where internationals have been held before, and there are airports such as Nimes and Marseilles not too far away.
But it could be a great event, perhaps the best Magic ever,

In our group, there are 2 new S/T holders, plus another 4 lads that have come to games this season for the first time and they are all from Barnsley.
I cant understand a word they say but, they seem to enjoy the game and bearing in mind that there isn't too much RL south of Wakefield (sorry Sheffield), it's an untapped market.
I don't know the best way for the club to exploit it but, a couple of games down there with free entry to Barnsley FC season ticket holders seems like a good idea, which maybe the favour could be returned for Trinity ST holders watching Barnsley
We could be really naughty and offer Leeds United S/T holders free entry for a couple of games as well
