Football is very important in Sarajevo! 🙂 You wouldn’t believe how much. To be completely honest, people here don’t invest that much in sports and that results in low game quality, but it really doesn’t matter. There are two main football teams in Sarajevo, FC Sarajevo, the maroon ones, and FC Željezničar, the blue ones. The part of the stadium that I’m talking about belongs to FC Željezničar. Jug, Grbavica, my favorite! 😀
This stand is there for the biggest supporters of the team named The Maniacs! For the ones who truly live for game day. Game day is kind of a holiday here because everybody leaves their problems at home, take their kid’s hand and just wears a fictional Maniac suit for 90 minutes. That’s why this is the perfect activity to feel the spirit of Sarajevo!
Games are played in the early evening, so the colors of the sunset create a magical atmosphere! It gives you a beautiful look at the complete picture of this city! It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are from, what matters is that you want Željezničar to win! And to actually see and feel what happens after we win…hmm, there’s no money to buy that anywhere in the world! 🙂
