Still think if it had been somewhere just as far away but with decent links, hotels etc there would have been no fuss. Only allocating 3k tickets per club because of the known difficulties meant that it was going to end up with a shit atmosphere
I know you're a committed European J, but that is a bit naive. Azerbaijan will have lobbied hard, financially or otherwise, to have won the bid. This is not just a case of football largesse by UEFA. A lot of politicking will have gone on behind the scenes. Note also that Azerbaijan will host 3 group games and a QF in the 2020 Euros.
