Experienced Cricket Fans Advising Football Counterparts On World Cup Safety in South Africa

LONDON — England cricket fans are using their experience of touring South Africa to advise their soccer counterparts on safety issues for this year's World Cup.

The Barmy Army supporters group follows the England cricket team around the world and watched a four-game series in South Africa conclude this month.

Barmy Army founder Paul Burnham says fans "had a fantastic time in South Africa but this was no fluke."

Burnham stresses that fans should arrange accommodation and transport before the June 11-July 11 tournament.

Official government figures list up to 50 murders a day. National football associations and supporters groups have long been concerned that fans could be at danger if they stray from secure areas and do not prepare properly.
