Something, somewhere, and there are probably numerous factors is drastically wrong in how this fixture was marketed / publicized.

I recall watching many Under 21 fixtures, some perhaps 10 years ago now at the Racecourse - attendances were certainly better in previous years but low profile publicity and media attention combined with the kick off time have not helped.

If UEFA have set the kick off time there needs to be some representation with a view to change so far more people can realistically attend such fixtures - we in North Wales always come a distant second to those in the south - but this is about the same level as the after meal crumbs off the banqueting tablecloth.
I agree. The kick off time is a bit silly. I used to watch the Wales U21's years ago. Always advertised well. Usually in the leader, club website etc. Had no idea that there was a match on last night or on Tuesday.

The Germany game might be worth a watch
