We all heard about the airport in Spain that closed after one week, now the media are starting to report about the new airport in Kassel, Germany that cost 270 million euros to build and currently has only one scheduled flight per week - to Croatia. The flight on the opening day was cancelled because only six passengers turned up - so they sent them by taxi instead (to another airport).

I did try to go to the Leipzig derby last month, in the World Cup stadium that holds 45,000 and regularly sees crowds a tenth of that. But it was cancelled, at short notice, and the date of the rearranged fixture has yet to be announced.

Sound familiar?

I don't know what you are implying good sir, but the Yang Yang International airport serves dozens (DOZENS!!) of passengers within a single week, with flights to Gimhae, Gimpo and Gwanju.

Been on one of those Gimhae - Yangyang flights before....beats sitting in a bus for 5-6 hours.

I'm in Denmark this weekend. Apparently Christian Eriksen scored a goal for Spurs. I've already seen it nine times and I've only watched the sports news twice. :smt101

Not sure this really counts, but it's funny nonetheless.

England had been expecting an even higher attendance, with all 55,000 available tickets sold, but almost 10,000 did not turn up with transport problems in London and the weather contributing factors

Of course a lot of the tickets "sold" were given out free to clubs.

As you'll all know, the women's European Championships in curling are being held at the moment in Esbjerg, Denmark.

The local council are very excited about this, because as explained by an expert in sports and branding at the University of Southern Denmark (link in Danish), it means Esbjerg will move away from its image as a simple fishing town to something far more glamorous, like Aberdeen. They're expecting up to 500 people to attend this prestigious international event and the tax-payer has got out the chequebook for over 200 million won equivalent to make sure everything goes well.

Aberdeen? Not sure it's wise to have such lofty goals.

Hertha Berlin's new slogan for the 2016-17 season?

We try. We fail. We win.

People in the US are arguing about crowd sizes with suggestions from some sides that the numbers might be fudged.

We've already been doing that on this forum for years. :smt006

Ansan Police visited Daejeon for a midweek fixture and brought no fans whatsoever. But, that's the police team so hardly all that surprising.
