Professor Sean Turnell, Macquarie University discusses the interest in football in Burma, and the average viewer.

"The majority of people who would be watching the matches would be extremely poor. And they would watch the match at some sort of public place, it wouldn't be at home. The average person in Burma really cannot afford a television set and in any case, even if they could, the national electricity supply is so poor they really wouldn't be able to power it up in any case."
