Make some noise: Fans disappointed with dull crowd in World Cup final

first_imgIn a historic occasion, England and New Zealand are facing each other in the World Cup 2019 final at Lord’s on Sunday. Whoever wins the final showdown, one thing is certain that the game is going to get a new champion.A World Cup final is a once-in-4-years extravaganza, but the atmosphere in the stands did not seem to match up to the excitement expected for a showpiece event final. Not only did the crowd in the stands looked lethargic, but rows of empty seats also stood out amidst the crowd.Given that the hosts England are bidding for their maiden World Cup title, the fans watching the final away from the venues looked disappointed with the crowd inactivity.The fans also said, an average Test match could have gathered a better response from the crowd than what is being witnessed during the World Cup 2019 final here.In contradiction to the World Cup final on Sunday, the other matches of the tournament, where an Asian country was in action, saw a much better crowd turnout.Indians hearing the english crowd #ENGvsNZ#CWC19Final pic.twitter.com/7a1kpeB6VwSharad Kotriwala (@ModijiKaHathHai) July 14, 2019Even my normal voice is louder than this whole crowd#CWC19Final #ENGvsNZKANZA KAYANI (@KANZA_KAYANI_) July 14, 2019If India were playing the #CWC19Final the crowd would be million times more louder and enthusiatic??#ENGvsNZ #NZvENG pic.twitter.com/zIOplg8dbTsweety (@piggy_chopps) July 14, 2019English crowd is so dead.
