FIFA looks to compensate fans who missed semifinal

FIFA might compensate fans who missed the Spain’s World Cup

semifinal against Germany because of congestion at Durban’s new

airport.

Hundreds of fans had their flights delayed or turned away from

King Shaka Airport on Wednesday after an increase in private jets

contributed to all the landing slots being filled.

FIFA spokesman Nicolas Maingot says soccer’s governing body will

definitely look at the cases of fans affected by flight

problems.

Even when some planes landed, they had to take off again and

head to the old Durban International Airport.

Attendance at Moses Mabhida Stadium was 1,800 below capacity for

Spain’s 1-0 victory.
