    Feel petty mentioning this after the above but the womens' final is tomorrow at Cardiff City Stadium so expect Canton/Grangetown/Riverside to be mayhem. Along with all the other closed roads mayhem.

    We're in Cardiff for a night. Had a walk around the Bay Area where we're staying last night and I thought it was a lovely atmosphere and a general sense of excitement. The fan zone looks like it will be a great place to watch the game

    There's no big screen to watch it in fan zone.

    yeah, don't think there are any screens for people of Cardiff
    there's a huge ESPN stage on city hall lawns, presume that is for one set of fans??

    :D That makes no sense at all. Looked like there was last night. In that area by the restaurants by St Davids hotel?

    No, lots of stuff going on there, but no screen cos it would have brought even more visitors into Cardiff. I'm looking forward to going into town tomorrow to soak up the atmosphere and have a few drinks. Its gonna be ram in there, but hopefully fun.

    So what is the point of a fan zone? Just somewhere to get pissed? We could have all chipped in and bought them a few cans to stay at home

    Attended a conference on CSE in Cardiff, police were saying they see a considerable spike in demand for children and young people during big sporting events here. Its sickening.

    There's generally a spike in domestic violence and a few recent murders/ manslaughters can be linked to international day drinking binges.

    Disappointed they're not catering for local people tho. London is much better at these things than what I've seen from Cardiff Council so far.

    It's a UEFA/police decision not Cardiff Council.

    how do you know that?

    ddraig dros ben llestri

    init! but then a lot will accept any disruption and any amount of coppers with guns "cos it makes us safe" etc and shout down anyone with a dissenting view
    so no need to bother with placating the locals

    UEFA never put up fan zones to deter fans without tickets. Plus police didn't want the added security risk. In the aftermath of Manchester there was even a suggestion that police would not guarantee security of event and wanted it played behind closed doors!!

    so why are so many fans above capacity of stadium coming?
     
  25. ddraig

    ddraig dros ben llestri

    there are fan areas for fans of the teams just not Cardiff public
