Sports

The most popular sport in Lithuania is basketball. By far. Children play on the streets, teenagers play in basketball schools, adults play after work. And after basketball they usually have a few beers. I mean adults.

Football, though, is some kind of a "fifth leg to a dog", as the locals say when they want to describe the not-at-all-needed item or thing. As a showbiz representative Marijonas Mikutavičius lately wrote in his column, "people choose to watch anything, but not football on TV, even when national team has a deciding match".

Which brings us to a quite poor situation with football (soccer)  fields in Lithuania - just a few of them looks like this:

 


Vėtra (Vetra) football stadium in Vilnius, Lithuania. One of the best, actually.

 

A few dozens like this:

Even if the conditions are, at most, average, we have a few sport enthusiasts
A typical no-name football field. Somewhere close to Vilnius airport.

 

 

And the remaining ones are even worse. Well, things can only get better, as they say..
