city in northern #China, Turpan, is planning to attract tourists with cockfighting. The sport is 280 years old in #Turpan and the city hopes that the popularity of the sport will be more widespread and attract tourists from other parts of the country.
A cockfighting association will be responsible for promoting the activity, and arenas will be set up in markets and bazaars. The sport – if it can be called a sport – will be brought out in the open so that illegal gambling associated with it can be eliminated.
Cockfighting is illegal in Britain – where it was banned in the 19th century – and in all the states of the US.
