If you have every little, you always go for more bang for your buck. If you have enough, you can waste it on both European and African games.
Going to the stadium is cultural, just like supporting a team or like religion.
It has very little to do with poverty. There are enough Ghanaians with enough money to fill a stadium every day of the week. It is the cultural aspect that has been lost. People are more used to watching TV than going to the stadium. And that is the biggest issue all across Africa and majority of the third world.
There is book "Soccernomics", go get a copy. Very interesting book, written with facts.
So we both agree organization has little to do with it as Soccerman and Dr. luv are making it seems.
I don't know what went on in the 70s but I can bet my last dollar that organization today is better than that of the 70s.
