Football (Soccer), London: 43 reviews and 53 photos

  At White Hart lane - home of Spurs
by fishandchips

Football (or Soccer if you are from the USA) is the main game of the English. They are totally passionate about the game. To understand what I mean you have to go to a match and see for yourself.

There is a huge amount of chanting, singing, abusing and joking that goes on. You just can't start to understand the passion without going. The level of passion hits a real high point when there are local derbys played (eg Spurs vs Arsenal, Man Utd vs Man City, Liverpool vs Everton). Tickets are very hard to find for these games as they are normally sell-outs but you can try contacting the club of which game you want to go to and find out how you can get tickets.

Generally tickets are sold as season passes with the rest up for grabs for clubs members first. The price of a ticket is around 20 pounds unless you get one from a scalper - then it's either much more or really cheap if you find one who can't sell his tickets!

Equipment: Make sure that you plan ahead and either wear the colours of the local team or something that is different to both. Wearing the oppositions colours and sitting with the home supporters could be asking for trouble - especially if the home team has a loss!!
