Copenhagen is also quite easy to get to, multiple fixture times/dates each weekend for fixtures. Only problem is the price of a pint!
You can fly Ryanair to Sweden too (obviously the Stockholm airport they use is way out of the city), and there's often midweek fixtures in the top division, sometimes the 2nd too.
I'd also recommend Germany and Switzerland is also quite doable, if like Denmark, a bit expensive.
Austria seems to have less flight options, but there's some cracking venues there, often surrounded by mountains. For Salzburg, you can fly to Munich and catch the train from there, perhaps combining with some German too, if the options are better (say if flying back on a Sunday evening). I've done a 1400 game in Hallein and travelling by train made the evening flight comfortably enough from Munich to Manchester.
EDIT: There's also Ireland. However, most football games there are Friday nights, but you will find Gaelic games on Saturday / Sunday if you're up for mixing sports. A few football clubs (Sligo, Longford) do play on Saturday nights though.
Last new football ground (438) Beck Lane Bay Athletic 2-1 Ovenden West Riding (13/5)
