WTF?

Around 50,000 per game

Last I checked, about 50,000+ people will be watching the World Cup matches in 3D, depending on the capacity of each stadia...

Meh

As I understand it from the feedback on the Sky 3D trials it is a bit of a gimmick anyway.

From what I heard the staged shots at the beginning where the camera was going down the line-ups etc. were very nice, but you can't watch a football game from up close. You watch most of the game pulled right back so you can see what is going on and the further away the subject if from the screen the less the 3D effect will be noticeable.

Also what is this assumption that we want to watch everything in 3D? Do they really envisage a world where we watch Eastenders and the News in 3D? It adds a bit of fun when watching something like Avatar or a Pixar film, but it doesn't really add that much to the experience and having watched two 3D films in one day last weekend I found that over-use of it gave me a bit of a headache.

The entire story is, "England fans will not get to see their favourite World Cup team in 3D".
