Today is the start of the NFL season, so on the Travel Photo Thursday I thought I’d share some images of the pre-game celebration I witnessed in Budapest.
I was sitting outside enjoying my final meal in Budapest when I heard a loud commotion coming from down the square a bit. I figured it was the football fans because all day I had been noticing the city was swimming in yellow and blue jerseys.
Since my food was on the table I couldn’t get up and see what was going on but I could hear the chanting. As I continued eating the chanting and rallying got louder and louder. It was clear they were coming my way!
Grabbing my camera, I was able to snap a few pictures as the sea of yellow and blue swarmed all around me! These fans were in town to support their team in the Euro Cup Qualification round. Despite their best efforts, Sweden lost the match to Hungary 2-1.
Have you witnessed sports fanaticism in action?
For more great pictures, make sure to look into Budget Travelers Sandbox.
Every Thursday they post new photos from their travels and invite others to join in!
Maybe I’ll see you there.
