Hi,

Could somebody have a look at this paragraph?

All the interviewees agreed that events at the stadium affect their business in a negative way. On the positive side, the city centre becomes busier than usual before the match, which gives the city centre a ‘funny’ image, replaced by that of an ‘abandoned’ town as soon as the match is to start. However, visitors are only ‘spending time while waiting for the match', browsing and window-shopping without any intention to buy. One interviewee observed that fans ‘spend the money in the pubs, and the cafés, and the restaurants, and they don’t really come in to shop’. The main reason suggested by retailers is that fans don’t want to carry shopping bags into the stadium, either because of products’ fragility or simply because they don’t want to pay attention to their bags during the match.

I've underlined the parts I'm not very confident about, but if you find any other mistakes/innatural expressions, please let me know Emotion: smile

Thanks in advance!
