What kind of supporter are you? Who are you supporting and why?
Being perfectly positioned in the heart of party central, it’s been interesting to watch the fans from different countries. One thing’s for sure: if you have flown to the other side of the world, you must at least have some passion for your country or the game.

There are those who support their team with loud, jovial enthusiasm, win or lose, even if they know from the outset that their team are the underdogs. And then there are the aggressive supporters who believe in winning at all costs.
