Who'd be a Wasps fan?

Again, slightly off topic but you are all rugby fans and it is surprising that more does not seem to have been made of this.

Basically, Wasps have moved their next home game in the LV Cup from Wycombe to... Abu Dhabi. No, that's not some newly built stadium named after some Arabian sponsors but the real Abu Dhabi. Like in the Middle East. Near Saudi Arabia.

Now, if I were a Wasps fan with maybe a season ticket, or someone who already had tickets for the game (a local "derby" against Quins) I'd be a shade peeved. I mean, Micky-Mouse competition as the LV Cup is, having your club move an attractive home game to another continent is a bit annoying - it is rather a long way to go for a Sunday afternoon's entertainment.

But, that aside (and they are offering your money back) what I suspect would really get you hopping around will be club owners Steve Hayes explanation which is... remarkable:
"While we understand that many supporters will not be able to travel to the game, Wasps’ fans have always vocalised their desire for the club to grow and strengthen its brand and it is unique opportunities like this that can really propel Wasps into new realms."
So - Wasps fans - this is all your fault because apparently you have said you want the club to grow. Admittedly you may not have realised that plans to "propel Wasps into new realms" meant completely new kingdoms, but its clearly always a good idea to read the small print.

(Apparently Wasps have a Director of Communications starting soon. Got their work cut out I think...)

    Still - it'll be easier to get home from their that getting out of Wasps' home car park......
