Hundreds of Athletic Bilbao fans missed the Europa League final, went to Budapest instead of Bucharest
Around 400 Athletic Bilbao fans are believed to have missed their side’s Europa League final appearance after getting their European capitals muddled.
The barmy Basques turned up in the Hungarian capital Budapest expecting to see their team take an Atletico Madrid, only to discover that the match was taking place 500 miles away in Bucharest, Romania.
Spanish TV channel Antena 3 reported that the fans soon clocked on to their error due to a lack of fellow supporters in Hungary.
They consulted a map to find out where they should but, incredibly, were unable to locate Bucharest on the map and failed to make it to watch the game.
Not that they missed much, since their side were 3-0 losers on the night. In Bucharest.
