Fail – Dugouts blown over in Saudi Arabia
A quick note to the organisers of the Qatar World Cup – If you are thinking of holding the tournament during the winter, please don’t make the two dugouts out of polystyrene or paper as they seem to do in your neighbouring countries.
During the Saudi Premier League match between Ittihad and El Ahly, the bench blew over backwards, but given that there seems to be no billowing of shirts in the wind, it would seem fairly shoddy workmanship is at fault.
The best bit of the video is the men lifting up the bench, because there is a second where you think that there might be a stranded substitute underneath. It’s only a kitbag though, so real shame.
