The game belongs to the fans!

Came across something very interesting indeed today.
At a time when the richest boards and clubs (irrespective of sport really) are struggling to get the crowds in even for the big games, I’m surprised the approach of the german football federation has been largely ignored. Apparently, travel to the BUNDESLIGA (the german football league) is absolutely free. Get on a train or bus, tell them you’re going to the game (some sort of proof required, i assume). Also, beer is served on an unlimited basis in the stadiums without any fear of violence!
I think the BCCI should do something similar for test cricket here. Not like they need the money! Imagine… Free travel, cheap alcohol and food, lots of cheering and singing… magic!

    BCCI doesn’t have to do anything. Things are good the way they are. Infact things wud turn ugly if it did anything on the lines of BUNDESLIGA.

    They don’t have to do the saaame things:)
    Travel benefits, reduced ticket prices, food at the ground. Small measures. State boards are pretty well off and if at all they ever need extra cash, they can dip into the bcci’s coffers. Btw, you said you hated watching cricket lately. What’s changed? India’s good form has turned your head, I presume. 🙂
