Scotland In Zagreb, Dalmatia And Slavonia Starved Again

Croatia football coach Igor Stimac has apologised to fans in the Slavonian and Dalmatian regions of the country after yet another home World Cup qualifying fixture was assigned to the capital Zagreb.

Stimac publically said he was surprised that Dinamo Zagreb’s Maksimir stadium was selected to host Croatia v Scotland on 7 June 2013. The Croatian football federation says though they had no choice but to award the fixture to Zagreb as stadiums in Osijek (Slavonia) and Split (Dalmatia) do not provide enough security to meet FIFA’s standards.

Fans around Croatia are starved of any international football as Zagreb has hosted over 95% of Croatia’s important internationals in recent times.
