20 June 2008  

Basle, Switzerland (dpa) – Basle is running out of accommodation space as a large number of Dutch and Russian fans won’t be able to sleep in the city hosting the Euro 2008 quarter-final between the two nations.

Hanspeter Weisshaupt from the local organising committee said on Thursday that neither all 100,000 Dutch nor all 10,000 Russians expected in the city would find a bed there for Saturday’s match.
