As of now it is not yet officially confirmed. Thus far mayor of Amsterdam has not allowed quarter-finals nor semi-finals, as matches with Dutch participation start at 22:00 (10pm) and can end as late as 01:00 (1am), which is too late according to Amsterdam's bureaucrats. So one thing for sure, you will not be able to watch the semi-final on the big screen ...

In Wikipedia there is a page about the relations between Croatia and Serbia For the first time in history, Serbia as an independent country will be represented by its national team against the Croatian team on March 22, 2013 in qualification group A of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. For the safety of the lives of those attending the next two matches in 2013, ...

The European Biathlon Championships can draw sizeable crowds: In 2004 in Belarus, they attracted some 80,000 visitors, and given that the World Championship in Germany in February 2012 attracted more than 200'000 visitors over 6 days, you can expect that the Bansko region's ~100,000 beds will be rather well occupied. The competitors in the Biathlon event ...

There is a website which shows you in sample pictures how your view looks like depending on the seat you chose during this event. Some general points: The tournament lasts the whole day, from early morning. It's great to see how the younger fighters and their fighting style differs from the older, professionals. The matches themselves are over in mere ...

When you are traveling inter-state the buses usually have better amenities than most cheaper airlines, water/tv/ac/etc. And yes, they are safe to go anywhere. I have traveled from Pernambuco in the Northeast to Bahia and Rio Grande do Norte multiple times, including travels inside of the Pernambuco state. They could look something like this: ...

Yes. It is called a "trip/travel cancellation insurance". Just like every other insurance, you get it before something happens, pay for your trip, get the insurance and then reclaim the money in case something prevents you from traveling. Of course, you will have to make sure that the policy covers the eventual reasons for the cancellation that you want to ...

So, you're basically out of luck, as the pros do not compete outside the tournaments. You'd need to catch an exhibition or temple game, but I'm not aware of any handy schedule for these. Edit: Found a list on Japanese Wikipedia, but the regular ones listed there are only in February, June and October. What you can do, though, is head to Ryogoku in Tokyo ...

First of all, it's definitely Sochi (but sounds more like TCH), this is official transliteration of the Ч. Secondary, as others mentioned, you must do a stop during your flight at Moscow - unfortunately, in Russia many flights are made with such stop. I suggest you to stop for a day in Moscow, just for another sightseeing there. Also: Flight duration ...

Details are yet to be confirmed but the main location would be the Museumplein, south of the centre. See 1 and 2 If public viewing is allowed here or elsewhere, the municipality requires that access must be free of charge and sufficient water should be available for free.

What your friend told you it's pretty inaccurate and the opposite is actually true: many people at the stadium DO wear jersey / shirt of their favorite team. Authentic jerseys are sold pretty much everywhere at the same price, which is usually quite high. You can find "accurate enough" jerseys for lower prices, tho. Usually outside the stadium there are a ...

Biathlon is a combination of cross-country skiing and shooting. As such it doesn't take place on downhill/snowboard slopes. While it is probably worth checking with the resort, I doubt any downhill slopes will be closed. Of course it may mean that the place is much more crowded.

The usual way is to go there (Mont Ventoux or any other stage with mountains) with an RV the day before. (image kindly stolen from a french blog)

A good time to arrive at an NBA games partly depends upon your definition of "good": 1. Avoiding lines/crowds If you want to avoid lines and crowds, arrive at least 45-60 minutes before the game's start time (or earlier with Club tickets) will help avoid the crowds. Here's what Madison Square Garden's website says about open gate times: Doors for ...

If you take the buses in the cities' bus stations, you probably will not have problems concerning the quality of them. As for the safety regarding thieves and speeding buses, thefts sometimes occurs in interstate buses but are not really common. Speeding drives on the other hand are quite common. Also, if you do decide to go by bus, consider that the ...

I've been to every major sumo tournament at least once (most more than once), and sat in both boxes and seats in Nagoya (as well as other tournaments). While the answers here are good, there are some quirks that more casual fans may not know or appreciate. Daily Schedule Matches start early in the morning (8:30am) from the lowest ranked wrestlers. The main ...

Alternatively, you could go to Groningen, in the north of The Netherlands. The past couple of matches have been shown on large screens on the market square ("Grote Markt"). The semi-final against Argentina will be shown there as well, so there's a good chance the final will be shown as well. Here's a YouTube video of the penalty in the match against ...

The answer of uncovery is really good. Here is my experience. We (we were four my wife, my two children and me) went 2 times to Nagoya Sumo basho. First time on chairs on the west side Second time in a box (there was an offer for families) right in front ! The second time was really better : closer, very good point of view, beeing able to see fighter ...

As far as the travel to either place is concerned you can fly to either place with a single stop in Moscow. For example at present you can use TransAero though flights to Khanty-Mansiysk may not be available every day. Current costs: ~$900. You can use UTAir to get to Khanty-Mansiysk which books with LuftHansa for international flights. EDIT They offer ...

I'd suggest someone like The Fanatics, who a group of us expats used to buy tickets. They tend to follow the Fulham games, but if you time it right for when Fulham is playing Liverpool, you could be in ;) Otherwise Ticketmaster is another option for events of all types, including the football, although possibly you'll need a UK address to have them posted ...

There will be box offices open outside events. Some events are selling slower than others. This is especially true of events outside London such as the football in Glasgow. You can see online at www.tickets.london2012.com/ what events are available. Buying online near the time will require you to collect the ticket at the box office outside the even. Simply ...

The six grand tournaments are really huge events and reservation tickets are sold out long in advance despite being very expensive. Outside of these, there are exhibition competitions which are not used for ranking, and tickets for these should be easier and cheaper to obtain. If you're lucky there may be one that fits your schedule. However, all ...

While you probably need to qualify to enter, if you're interested in spectating, the 2013 Losophone Games will be taking place in Goa during November, and there may well be follow-on events after that closer to your arrival. Otherwise I'm afraid your question might be considered a bit too localised :/ Hope that is at least of interest, though!
