Seeing the beautiful game in Berlin and Brussels

Watching football / soccer in Berlin and Brussels is a wonderful experience.

I watched the Sweden v Paraguay game at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin during the 2006 World Cup and there was a wonderful atmosphere. 50,000 Swedish fans and 200 Paraguayan fans were in attendance plus some neutrals like me. Recommended.

Soccer Fans Generosity

Fans of soccer (or football as it’s called in many countries) are sometimes portrayed as violent thugs. These people give the beautiful game a bad name.

To begin to set the record straight, read this story about the generosity of some Bournemouth fans towards the fans of their opponents in the third round of the F.A. Cup, Burton Albion.
