Paid fans aka employees (reserve players, clones, coaches, officials, video technicians, statisticians, equipment managers, cooks, physios, shrinks, ballboys and ballgirls) - CNT is big!

I always forget about the clones! Are these the "I can imitate Harimoto" clones or the "Hey, FZD needs a new kidney, report to surgery" clones? Wink

Each team has a limit on how many players/coaches/staff can be at the world champs.

No doubt China gets special treatment, and having they own mini crowd.

Interesting. Some countries (USA) that would have no effect on. But I know Germany usually brings a pretty big team. I talked to some of them in Houston at the 2021 Worlds, for both men and women they had brought:

10 players

3 coaches

2 physical therapists

1 sports psychologist

1 doctor

1 athletic director to coordinate

The host always has the biggest crowd. What do you expect?

There should be volunteers selected from local universities that entered the closed-loop, who actually had to go through a 7-day period of quarantine, unlike the players.

JTTA has brought many staff as well this time. It's the number of media that's been severely cut down.

From this angle it really looks like An is serving over the table. Could just be perspective.

Quite a few nets for CSM early on.


CSM has trouble with Stumper's serve to his short FH.


CSM has adjusted.



Stream went down mid-game.

Time for the European Champion to step up and live up to his potential and value.







Couldn't close out after multiple game points.

Imagine Rosskorf saying something like this to Qiu before the match.  Thank God you are not a coach

Imagine Rosskopf telling QD "who doesn't lose a match?" before the match. Thank Satan you're not a coach.

One time, I counted a delegation of 65 for China
Junior level wise, Japan has that big crowd that follows few kids (avg 4 or 5 adults per player)

The xzy toss carries so many advantages that it catapults Germany into the final.
Performance has nothing to do with players' abilities. According to the all mighty God on this forum, Its all down to luck.  TongueSleepySleepy

Not enough rent a crowd
the A team, B team players and moms and aunties, not enough
Need all 30 prov teams too

I wonder if the rent a crowd was allowed for other countries too.
Last time a TT tournament in a bubble, didn't have Japanese spectators
