“It would be great if we could fill a full hut,” Sturm spokesman Walter Wenegger told a news meeting in Graz on Wednesday. As of today, there were 11,727 tickets for the opening of the Bundesliga on Friday between Sturm Graz and Red Bull Salzburg sold. The hit game starts at 8:30 p.m.
“We’ve all been waiting a long time for a full house, a great atmosphere and a football atmosphere. You can feel a huge anticipation,” enthusiastically Christian Ilzer said. The storm’s coach revealed that there was “real tension” in the team.
The hunger for a home win in front of an angry crowd of fans is huge: “It could be a good and special evening. It will be important that we do everything we can to become a football festival for Sturm fans,” the Blackys head coach continued.
