Hi,

Of course Poland had the biggest support, as they are home nation... But what about others? Any numbers?

There are reports, that there were about 2-3k of lithuanians in Wroclav and about 4-5 k in Lodz. But I couldn't see it from TV. maybe there were :)

What about other countries?

And I'm VERY interested to hear impressions from ppl who been there :):rolleyes:

Croatia by far worst:mad: If we don't count Macedonian cheering for us. Generaly over the years people lost faith in basketball because lack of results and because of consistan't absence of players from NT nobady cares about basketball. In 2 round without girls and wifes we had 4 (four) fans:o

During France-Spain match,I could hear from the stands lithuanians!!:D

Imo,together with Slovenians they're the best!!
Perhaps even better,since they stayed in Poland to watch bball even though their NT is already out.

You could here Kdor ne skače ni Slovenc in one of the group stage games also. I think between Serbia and Spain.

There were around 2500-3000 Slovenians in Varšava, in Lodž few hundred but now we expect some more, like 1500 and if we continue into the semis there will most probably be even more.

It was odd to say the least, yeah I agree Lithuanians are the best just for staying to just watch basketball :cool:

Bulgaria - around 100, maybe less

Turkey - between 100-200 in Wroclaw, later more.

Lithuania - Cannot give numbers, but by far the best and largest foreign group. Spent the whole week with 15 of them :D.

Serbia - could see only a few people in Lodz.. less than 20 for sure.

Spain - in Lodz, around 50 i would say

Slovenia - They get more in Lodz as their team performed better. Met with a few of them, they were just coming before the 5th games. Around 200, maybe less.

Poland - Sold-out arena in Wroclaw, also biggest group in Lodz but less than 1st stage in number I guess.

There were around 2500 supporters from Slovenia in Warsaw, around 200 in Lodž and there should be around 1500 supporters in Katowice for the quarterfinals.

Our tourist agencies fucked our fan support in Lodž because they didn't offer any offers for fans. Katowice should be around 1000 with tourist agencies and I assume around 500 people from Slovenia on their own. Hopefully, if we get through quarterfinals the number could increase.

Maybe Serbia fans will start to show up more (not just for Eurobasket) since their team is relevant again.

hahaha... that what I was going to write about.

"Li-Tu-Va Li-Tu-Va" will be one of the memories of everybody here in the eurobasket.
It was heard everywhere in Lodz, an after Lithuania lost their chences and also now in Katowitce (and all the cities around) is became like a self-joke of Lituanians with all the other basketball fans about the fact that Lithuanians who brought the most fans by far even after most canceled because Lithuania is out.

So now everybody who see Lituanians they start the "Li-Tu-Va" and the Lituanians join them.

Nah I don't think so.Even though secretary of our Basketball association said he had some information's that some bus's will arrive in Katowice on Saturday.
USA is another story though. USA is full of Serbian immigrants especially Chicago Illinois which is not that far from Indianapolis.
