Bernd Wiesberger BEMUSED by Euro 2020 fans compared to BMW Internatonal Open

Bernd Wiesberger has taken to Twitter to wonder how it's logical that Germany will play in a stadium of 14,500 fans at Euro 2020, but that this week's BMW International Open in the same country can't have more than 400 spectators on the course.

He makes a valid point, don't you think? Especially given golf fans can spread out in the open air, rather than be enclosed into a stadium sat next to each other. 

 

 

"How is it logical that Germany will play in a stadium of 14,500 fans tomorrow, yet the BMW INTL OPEN can't have more than 400 spectators watch at the course?" tweeted Wiesberger, who lines up as one of the favourites this week on the European Tour.

He added: "Not saying that there shouldn't be 14,500 fans in the stadium btw... but I really feel like a few thousand people, spread out over 18 holes, shouldn't be causing too much headache."

Check out some of the comments in response to Wiesberger's comments. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

What do you make of just 400 spectators on a golf course, compared to 14,500 at a football stadium during Euro 2020? Share your thoughts on our social media channels.
