On the other hand, reading this article, doesn’t look like Donetsk is exactly the most salubrious destination or has done itself any favours in preparing for the Championships:
If true, purchase of only 20% of their ticket allocation by England fans is disappointing.
But I’m afraid if Poland is still relatively off the beaten track – one of my bugbears and reasons for publishing Polska Dotty – Ukraine is even more so.
And press like “Donetsk – experience what it feels like to smoke 40 a day”, and apparently poor logistical preparation (overpriced accomodation etc) won’t make it any easier.
Confess I haven’t been to Donetsk, but am in no doubt it deserves better.
As per previous blog, will be fascinating to see how all this pans out.
