Should we switch the order of the WC SF now

9 posts in this topic

I noticed that at Wembley the potential England v New Zealand clash will take place at 1pm and the Australia v Other will take place at 3.30pm. Based on the experience of today, the England game should really be the climax to the whole day at Wembley.

 

In all honesty, if England did not beat NZ, how many fans would be up for the 2nd semi-final? Even if they did you want the most exciting part to be at the back end of the event.

Why would the organisers do this now when there was always a good chance that England would be playing in the first semi-final at the start of the tournament? Any change would just make the organisers look a bit foolish. I don't think they are that.

I'm looking forward to watching the Aussies no matter what, hope England smash em in the final, but it's a pleasure to see some of the greatest players in the flesh

If you're saying that England fans won't be bothered about the 2nd game, won't they just turn up late if we're playing in the second semi? Don't see how switching the games around will make a difference to the numbers watching the non-England semi.

Only the England game will be on BBC, so I'm not sure it matters TOO much as long as it's packed for that one.

Will be staying for both games regardless of order. Making the most of my twenty quid club Wembley seat given that the same seat for any other major event would be over a hundred quid.

There's the difference between turning up to a first game knowing the 'big one' is the second game and leaving after the first game because your side has been knocked out of the World Cup or squeaked through. I will be there for both games. This is different to game one as losers go home. If England lose thousands of fans may literally 'go home'. The other way around means the second half of the Aussie game is played to a crowd of 60-70k.

 

I am just playing Devils advocate here.
