If there is one characteristic about Macedonia, it’s that people here bet a lot, really a lot! There are betting places on every single corner. My favorite one is Sport life café, formerly known as Corner café. I often go there to have my morning coffee – besides other things, the coffee is great.
The betting places are not just a place where you go to leave money and leave. The betting places became a space for watching matches, searching results, making strategies for gain, complaining about a bad game, arguing and cheering on teams. It became a common place for watching important games. It is definitely a place with a lot of adrenaline.
The main target group is surely men, but not exclusively. Besides the men of all ages and different social and economic backgrounds, from time to time you can see women drinking coffee with friends or waiting for results.
People can be quite passionate about sport, when their favorite team is playing. Besides this feeling for sport separating people, it’s very often a uniting element. It is a general topic for discussion between every single person no matter where she or he is from! I personally don’t like watching sport, but I occasionally want to share space with people passionate about it. And Sport life café is the place to be for that!
