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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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: ...

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 ...

Go to Sochi (or Sotchi?). It is much easier to reach from Frankfurt than Khanty-Mansiysk. The international airport is located some 30 kilometers south of Sochi. Sochi is a touristic place and you don't have to worry about the infrastructure. For the dates you specify a flight from Frankfurt to Sochi, via Moscow Sheremetyevo, takes 7 to 9 hours, including ...

You can go by bus from Grenoble to the Alpe d'Huez. On the 18th of July 2013 you can leave Grenoble at 6:55, 10:27 or 13:00. You will arrive at the Alpe d'Huez at 9:13, 12:43 or 14:43. On that day there is no bus leaving between 13:00 and 18:55, for obvious reasons ... Schedules can be consulted here. The site is in French only. Let me know if you need help ...

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.

Roads that the race actually follows are closed to cars a couple of hours before the racers arrive, sometimes more depending on the area. Cross roads are open until closer to race arrival time. Best bet is to drive nearby and get your bike out and ride the rest of the way to your preferred viewing point. Bikes and pedestrians can move along the closed ...

You have several options to buy tickets: Online via the official website ahead of time. This will be the safest option and allows you to pick exactly the seats you want. When paying via credit card there isn't any real inconvenience dealing with currency conversion. Online via StubHub. I have used StubHub many times and find the site reliable and safe. ...

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 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 ...
