European Soccer Fans in Budapest

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.Swedens Football Fans in Budapest Hungary

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!Football Fans in Budapest Hungary

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.More Football Fans Budapest Hungary

Of course, they had their escorts too 🙂Football Fans Budapest Hungary

Maybe I’ll see you there.

    Progressing modern technologies viewed the creation of self-service dash panels,
    which reduced the event of mistakes as well as discrepancies.

    I’m a big fan of soccer (we call it football in Europe). Unfortunately, it’s more about fanaticism and less about sports these days here in Romania, so I only watch the games from Premier League and La Liga – they are more fun.

  14. I’m a huge soccer fan, and yes I’ve taken part in some fanaticism. It is hard being in the States and being a fan of English soccer, specifically Manchester United, because it is hard at times to catch all the games. But finding a pub willing to open at 7am so I can watch my guys is always a good time:)

  15. It looked like someone robbed the IKEA umbrellas and started wearing them!

    Photos are great reminder of events and places. We love soccer and have witnessed sports fanaticism in action.

  20. Great pics — how fun that you got to be part of that. I was thrilled to be in Vancouver for TBEX in June on the night the Canucks won game 5 in the Stanley cup finals. It was so exciting to be there among the jubilant crowds in the streets. Sadly, the Canucks loss a few days later prompted those terrible riots.
