FIFA says Bell Block Football Fans can sit but not stand

Bell Block football fans were treated to two dramatic and hugely entertaining football games today, Monday 1st June 2015 at Stadium Taranaki for the fifa U-20 world cup 2015. 8500 football fans turned up in doubtful weather conditions. For many people this was their first time they had attended a FIFA Football Tournament and some of the FIFA Rules didn’t sit well with many fans. You could sit but not stand and watch the games. Large parts of Stadium Taranaki was taped off as they were standing only areas. Another interesting rule was when buying a bottle of Coke or Lemonade, the staff must give it to you with the bottle top cap removed in case throw it as a missile. Eftpos was not allowed (even though VISA are a major sponsor), so you were stuck in a 20 minute queue to get cash out and then were ripped off $3.00 to get access to your cash.
