Football fanatics have you ever considered the idea of backpacking to watch your favourite football team play live? Would you consider making it a tradition to attend every FIFA World Cup to support your team, where you can live the Champions league experience, and listen to the anthem live and direct? Just imagine every tiny detail right in front of your naked eyes-the pressure, emotions, and the epic screaming goal!
This is the story of the Pradilla brothers, who are passionate about football. It all started in 2006, where they went to attend the Germany World Cup followed by the 2010 South Africa World Cup, which somehow became their ‘Football Backpacking Tradition’. Since then they were called the football backpackers.
As crazy as it may seem, one of the brothers has even convinced his wife to watch his favourite football team playing live on their honeymoon, and that is not all; he even shaved his head like a soccer ball!! Now I totally get the wacky behaviour of my brother when he watches the football match. I think I can totally understand the feeling and emotions of diehard football fans. I must admit that I am not really a football fan per se, but when there is a World Cup, we can all go nuts! Not to mention the FIFA World Cup anthems and songs that lift the spirits. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, since every FIFA World Cup is unique in its own way. You never know which football team may surprise you.
Football backpacking is after all not a bad idea to consider. It is just a wonderful way to express your love and support to your favourite football team. If you really want to make ‘Backpacking Football’ your tradition like the Pradilla brothers, then find them here.
