Football (Soccer), London
Football is practised, won, lost and watched in London every day by people of all sorts of age, colour and genders!
You can watch a game, play a little in the park or if you're lucky see your team lift a cup that they won.
The photo shows the support for my team Tottenham Hotspurs winning the FA Cup in 1991 (so long ago).
Since Fulham FC has signed Inamoto, a Japanese national player, you can see quite a number of Japanese showing up for their matches. These five girls here weren’t able to get tickets for the home match vs Southampton on Saturday, 17th of March 2003, so they invested their money into Inamoto jerseys, sporting them at South Africa Road outside the Queens Park Rangers stadium, where Fulham FC currently play their matches.
Premiership football is big not just in England , but all over the world. Perhaps the smartest premiership stadium in London is The Emirates - home of Arsenal FC.
Not exactly an extreme sport but the weather and the price of cider at Barnet is. It snowed the day I went to Underhill and Barnet were as boring as we (Clwb Peldroed Y Wrecsam) were that day.
When you enter a pub in London, there's a good chance the locals will be talking about the latest football (soccer) matches. Pick up a local paper to see listings of games and times.
