Looks quite festive! Pity about the glaring open spaces in the stands. I was watching on TV and it was a bit embarrassing to see the empty seats on either sides of the goal posts all the time. I gave away these tickets to the cleaner here at the office and the first feedback from the game was "It was not full"! I’m sure the games with the “bigger” teams will draw the crowds. My first game is the Germany one, then England, round of 16, quarter final and 3rd/4th play-off. Can’t wait!

It was a good start to the world cup, but the empty seats were disappointing as you said. The later games have been better in that way, but you would think that would so many people not being able to afford going to the World Cup part of FIFA's mandate should be to make sure those seats are filled by the less fortunate. Awesome that you gave away some of your tickets though.

Hope you enjoyed the rest of the games, big one today. Also going to 3rd vs 4th, hopefully the teams involved wont treat it as a dead rubber and play with some pride!
