That attendance is pretty humiliating. You'd think people would turn out to see their own team. Hard to imagine a stadium here being anywhere near that empty for a team USA game, and soccer isn't all that popular here. In any event, you'd think the locals would turn out just for the event. After all, when are the Olympics ever likely to be in a place like Cardiff again?

The game is underway. Its cool to see New Zealand competing in the opening game. Yes the crowd is a bit disappointing, but lets hope it is a good game.

Go Kiwis!

GB really lifted their game after a shaky first few minutes, should have scored at least one.

Crowd looks OK, I'd guess 35,000-40,000 which would be above average for olympic womens football.

Biggest ever crowd for a women's football match in the UK in fact.
