Ad­vice for soc­cer fans

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - SPORT -

ENG­LAND cricket fans are us­ing their ex­pe­ri­ence of tour­ing South Africa to ad­vise their foot­ball coun­ter­parts on safety is­sues for this year’s World Cup.

The Barmy Army were in South Africa this month to fol­low the ODI and four-Test se­ries.

Barmy Army founder Paul Burn­ham says fans “had a fan­tas­tic time in South Africa but this was no fluke”.

Burn­ham stresses that fans should ar­range ac­com­mo­da­tion and trans­port be­fore the June 11-July 11 tour­na­ment.

There are fears over se­cu­rity for the global event. – Sapa-AP
