That’s the idea in Bangladesh, where power authorities are requesting retailers to shut down in the evenings just so football followers can watch at home without worrying about load management issues.
According to Reuters, the same request has been issued to “5,000 mills and factories after angry viewers attacked several power distribution centers and vandalized at least 20 vehicles following a loss in the transmission from South Africa. At least 30 were injured in the incident.”

The state-run companies gave the latest directive on the eve of Tuesday’s match between Brazil and North Korea, both teams having millions of supporters in Bangladesh.
The companies also asked subscribers to switch off air conditioners, water pumps, micro-ovens and other home appliances during the tournament which runs from June 11-July 11.
“Notice has been served to obey the instructions to manage frequency of load-shedding increased in the city due to the World Cup,” said Mohammad Afrazur Rahman, spokesman of the ministry of power, energy and mineral resources.
