Cribbing from a preview by Brecht Decaluwé, Burney notes: “Koksijde: 40,000 fans, 30,000 litres of beer, 215 toilets, 8 big screens, 10km of fencing, 1500 volunteers. 2 million euro budget.”
A few moments later he followed that up with: “So that’s 186 fans per toilet, or 1 each if you consider the fact that Belgians never bother with them.”
