FOOTBALL PASSION

goal-match-foot

“Competition is the essence of football.”

This quote from the founder of the modern Olympic Games, Pierre de Coubertin, could sum up the universality and uniqueness of the world’s most beautiful game.

Beautiful from its grass roots up. The artists who started it all created a unique show, invented majestic gestures and a game that provokes indescribable emotions.

Juan Roman Riquelme and Zinedine Zidane are perhaps the ones who best embody the notion of beauty on the hallowed green pitch. Itself also a beautiful sight to behold.

TO LOVE FOOTBALL IS TO LOVE LIFE

Football is an identity. A club, a stadium, team colours, a common history. A baton passed between generations, with rivalries that strengthen bonds. The ritual of a Sunday afternoon at the stadium, supporting players who come and go over the years, heroes who we fiercely love as we love our own.

LET’S LIVE IT TOGETHER

To love football is to love life, in all its shared emotion. Pride triumphs over disappointment, and vice versa. No other sport arouses so much passion in the stands, intoxicating those who gather to watch.

THE PASSION OF FOOTBALL IS UNIVERSAL

In South America, football is a matter of religion. In victory as in defeat, you defend your club as you defend your church. A cup final is the bet of a lifetime.

A person without football in their heart just can’t understand the feeling. Yet it does exist. Being passionate about football is the adventure of a lifetime.

Supporting your team

We love one club just like we love one partner. Support for Real Madrid passes down from grandfather to grandson. Being a Barça fan is a matter of identity, even of politics. San Siro is home to AC Milan as well as Inter. The Milanese have to choose between red and black, and blue and black. A life-defining choice.

The other side of the channel, the passion for football doesn’t get much stronger. In Manchester The Citizens and the The Red Devils capture the attention of an entire city of barely half a million inhabitants.
