The twisted world of FIFA - Women's World Cup attendances
06 July 2015 08:09 Post ID: #551995
Given the current investigations into FIFA And their penchant for 'creative accounting' it shouldn't come as no surprise to anyone that they have been effectively 'cooking the books' in respect of the attendence figures at the Women's World Cup in Canada.

In a world where failure is impossible, no one ever admits a mistake and things can only get better (even if there is ample evidence to the contrary) the following detail is only to be expected:-

Record attendances - really?

Figures from Fifa will show that this is the highest attended Women's World Cup in history - with 1.35m beating the previous best of 1.19m for the 1999 World Cup, held in the United States.

However, this total also includes inflated attendances for double headers held during the group stages. Buying one ticket would get you entry to two games, but your attendance would count twice.

It did not matter that you decided to miss the first game, Fifa counts the attendance at 75 minutes of the second game and then doubles it. That was despite some stadiums being half empty for the first of the day's two fixtures.

Outstanding me just the sort of manipulation we have come to expect from FIFA :no:

Not to be a conspiracy theorist, but perhaps it's to take away from the previous record set by the US...the country currently responsible for taking FIFA down?

Just because you are paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you.....

Congratulations to the USA Women's team btw for their World Cup victory :clap:
