But don't (a section of) the fans have to take a portion of responsibility for this type of thing too:

1) Where will they be housed?
2) Where will their children be schooled?
3) Which GP's, nurses and hospitals will attend to their medical needs?
4) Where will they fit onto the already packed trains and buses?
5) Where will their cars fit onto the already packed roads?
