“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.
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.
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.
