‘The key is: always be louder’

20 Oct

Name: Michiel Bumbar
Age: 28
Favorite club: Feyenoord Rotterdam (The Netherlands)
Fan since: 1997

Michiel Bumbar is a huge fan of Feyenoord Rotterdam. He goes to every match of his team, if he is able to attend them. His passion is based on love for the football club, not on the results from the past. He tells how he experiences Feyenoord-matches, especially away matches.

It hurts when ‘your’ football club lost a match. But the suffering can be alleviated when the rival football club is losing too. It is all about honour and pride: You do not want your club to befamous as the ‘shame’ of the region. 

Leo Wigger is from Hamburg, Germany, and he is a fanatic HSV Hamburg-fan. He tells why he hates ‘his’ rival Werder Bremen so much: “It’s a ‘cultural-thing.'”

Although, they mainly entertain the Liverpool-fans.
