    Many people have died in riots over soccer games, this includes fans, players, refs and other personnel

    I don't doubt it.

    But the only time they get hurt is when they get too close to each other and that's hilarious to watch.

    For the most part it is when they "touch" wheels in a sprint doing 45-50 mph. Funny, yeah I guess as long as you aren't one of them or friends with one of them. I guess I'll have to check a soccer game and laugh my *** off the next time on of them breaks his ankle.

    Not quite true. The leagues Norway and Sweden follow the calendar year, playing games from april to late october I think.
    Denmark is from late July to end of May, but has a winter break from December to March.
    The big leagues, England, Spain, Italy etc. plays from August/September to May.
    - The tricky part for the Scandinavian countries UEFA tournaments (Champions League, Euro League) which ends mid-December and starts mid-February. Long before their "home tournaments" begin.

    But yes, games are played in frost and snow. In Denmark the stadiums has heating under the fields (yes, it's real grass, not turf - at least for now). In Norway & Sweden I think turf is allowed in the stadiums.

    excellent. I knew they were involved in the Euro cups so I just assumed their league schedules were similar as well. Im thinking the Ruskies have similar issues
