Ulrik Wilbek's seven is the major attraction for the daily spectators of the arena, in which the Red Vikings are trying to be group champions brilliantly. Their movements are synonyms of news for the large Danish journalists community who, camera in hand, shoot their flashes to capture the way of the Nordic side in the tournament.

In Seville's venue, there are 185 accredited journalists. 78 of them are Spaniards, but the second nationality most repeated is the Danish, with 75 professionals. Even a TV channel from Copenhagen is here, settling a TV set in the arena for their live coverage. From Iceland there are 11 reporters, and 12 are from Macedonia. Just 6 Qataris and 2 Russians work in the media zone, and no Chilean journalist stamped his passport to Seville.
