New Code for Football

The "friendly" football (soccer) match between Australia and Greece brought out a fever, that probably took the Australian team by total surprise.
Having gained a place in the world cup, the focus has been on soccer or as it is becoming more and more referred to as, football.
95,000 people is a HUGE crowd by anyones standards. The interest in the game seemed to be greater than any other sporting event over the past years:
  • Work Colleagues organising to go to Fed Square to watch the match
  • People asking around for spare tickets
  • Radio/TV broadcasting live before the match
  • City streets closed
  • People racing off to watch the match
If it's anything to go by, I can't wait for the world cup! There are going to be some very tired people at work next month.
