Need a sporting or other international event in September 1997
For my story I need a sporting event (or some other sort of big event) that would take a lot of supporters from France to Britain, or from Britain to France, in the second or third week of September 1997. There don't appear to have been any relevant football games (at least in the European League) , and it's too early for Rugby so far as I can tell, any other suggestions? Any "friendly" games I might have missed?
Or some other event a lot of people might want to go to - a big-name rock concert or something?
I have a backup plan involving the Scottish National Referendum but sports etc. would work better.
Any suggestions? Also posted at https://ffutures.dreamwidth.org/2137778.html, where there are comments. Please comment here or there using OpenID.
