"Marrakesh - Fes : 3 - 2" Marrakesh Off The Beaten Path Tip by Bigjones

Marrakesh Off The Beaten Path: 103 reviews and 228 photos

  Supporters of Fes
by Bigjones

By a mere chance, our friend Kamal had to referee a football match in Marrakesh when we were there. It was a good occasion to see each other again and live another experience : a football game in Morocco ! Our friend invited us to go and see him and the other referees he presented us. We went to see the second half. Kamal told us it would be free for women but the policeman at the entrance didn't agree with that and said it was too late to go inside anyway, that there were too many people etc. After trying hard to convince him to let us in, we succeeded, he finally accepted and showed us a place among the Marrakesh's supporters. Five minutes later, he came back to bring us to a better place where we had a better view. This time among the Fes' supporters. We didn't care, we were supporting the referees anyway ! And they did a great job (well, at least that's what I heard, I don't know much about football !)
