Nigeria outnumbered in Porto Alegre

posted in: News | 0

So far, nearly 20 000 tickets of the 43 000 capacity Estadio Beira-Rio has been taken over by fans of the South American team, with more desperately buying up from the black market in and around the city.

By contrast, official Fifa figures show that only 1000 tickets have been purchased by Nigerians.

Over a 100 000 fans are estimated to have made the short trip across the border to cheer their team, and all of Porto Alegre has been flooded with fans kitted in the blue and white stripes of Argentina.

With their musical instruments banned, the Nigerians will barely be heard in the stands, either.
