WHAT IS THIS 
BACKPACKING FOOTBALL THING?

Saying that we are a community for football enthusiasts who travel the world watching football sounds rather generic. So let us call it a gathering place for football fans.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I BELONG HERE?

Have you ever woken up at the crack of dawn to watch a football game? Have you called in sick or left work early to watch a game? Do you envision hearing the Champions League anthem at your wedding? Are your Mondays ruined if your team looses over the weekend? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you definitely belong here.

Football traveling procrastination is a real condition. Millions of football fans suffer from that stuff. We’re gonna sound like your parents here but, you got to get up from that couch and stop watching football games from home. Stop wasting all your money in beer and go to a real stadium with real fans. You don’t need to be a millionaire, trust us, we’ve done it many times. In fact, we have a section called Football Capitals to help motivate fans just like you. You can do it, mate!

3. Meet Up

We know you can’t always make it to the stadium. However, that won’t stop you from watching the match. That’s why we created the Football Pubs program. We offer tips and recommendations to help you find the best spots in town to watch the match. Places with good reviews where you know you will find a great atmosphere and be surrounded by real football fans. Furthermore, we also host meet-ups at partner locations during important competitions to promote the community and hang out with likeminded fan
