The World Seen With  A Football Fan's Eye

Moscow - Luzhniki Stadium

22.05.2008 CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL 2007/2008
Manchester United - Chelsea 1:1 (penalties 4:3)


A sold out was expected at the Moscow Luzhniki Stadium, yet the gap amounted to several thousand onuccupied seats and the sectors had been dominated by red, white and black colours. The Russian government decided to lift off the visa requirement for two days - it was fine for the British citizens to produce valid passport and valid match tickets to the immigration officers.
The city center looked as if besieged by a foreign army, finding a free table in a restaurant was hardly possible.
I felt almost like ET in the plane - not more than 5 passengers including myself were not wearing t=either of the clubs jersey which nuturally attracted attention of all other passengers.
