Athletic Bilbao fans missed their Europa League final by mixing up Bucharest for Budapest.

The Basque club supporters wanted to watch their heroes take on Atletico Madrid in last Wednesday’s Europa League final in Bucharest. It was the biggest game of Bilbao’s season.

So 400 Bilbao fans decided to charter their own plane to take them to the final. And that’s where they made a colossal mistake.

The final was in Bucharest, capital of Romania. The Athletic special flight took the fans from Bilbao to Budapest, the capital of Hungary. They were only 397 miles from where they needed to be.
