Uefa - Em 2009 U21 And The Burger Bar

Recommended Posts

The EM 2009 U21 is to be held in Sweden with a few grounds getting a few matches each

Three games and a semi were to be held in Borås at Elfborgs' mighty fine stadium; that's until UEFA wades in with its big stick. In short, Elfborg has a new stadium with integrated commercial premises rented out to local business one of which is Max's hambuger joint. Now uncle Michel from UEFA and his sponsor Mr Mac don't like competition and has ordered all the businesses to close for the four days the tournement is to be held there. Enter conflict mode - Max offered to close an hour before and during the game on the condition it could sell burgers from a van across the road. UEFA/Sponsors said no dice. To be fair Max asked the local population via the newspaper GT's website how they felt, of the 22,000 who responded 93% told them to show UEFA the finger and open; so that's what they're doing and the response from UEFA - no U21 games at the Borås stadium.

I've tried to find some links in English as obviously I've skirted around a few issues in order to put over bias opinion, but alas only in Swedish. I suppose you could all switch to muppet cook mode.

Good old UEFA eh - doing all they can to reward lower budget footballing nations for finding alternative ways of funding what the preferred clubs can pay for at the drop of a Lampard contract!
