A RUGBY World Cup stadium planned simply five beer kegs for this Autumn’s Japan event — instead of 1,300 that England fanatics sink. Sponsors Heineken have been horrified on the venue’s one tiny bar, and little booze delivers for tens of many supporters.
Japan’s Yokohama Stadium lately ran out of beer at a rugby recreation before kick-off
A source stated: “They were in Japan checking facilities in advance of the match.
“They were stunned on the small quantity of beer on the market in grounds. One had merely one bar and five kegs of beer. “That wouldn’t take the final five minutes with rugby enthusiasts, not to mention an entire game. “Everyone’s satisfied it’s been spotted now. They have almost six months to ensure it’s taken care of out and no person is going thirsty on the World Cup.
Matches at England’s 82,000-seater Twickenham Stadium typically function 1,300 kegs of beer — sufficient for one hundred sixty,000 pints. But in Japan, famed for Sapporo beer, fans aren’t heavy drinkers. There has been so little ale supplied that components of the Yokohama Stadium, below, ran out before kick-off at a Japan-Australia sport in November.
A shocked professional on the ground, one of 12 World Cup sites, stated: “A spectator generally liquids a tumbler of beer at a football fit. “But rugby enthusiasts consume 4 to 6 glasses consistent with the character. One sold 2cans of beer.”
One plan now being considered is for beer carriers to mingle with World Cup fanatics in stadiums. Heineken said: “Fans can rest assured of an outstanding experience. The September to November showpiece is set to draw 400,000 supporters international.
