Fanáticos de fútbol

Fútbol is most definitely the national pastime of Uruguay. A small section of the national stadium’s upper bleachers, this photo is from a game called el clásico, a match that happens once a year between Montevideo’s two most rival teams: Nacional and Peñarol. The crowd’s energy fills the stadium, at this game and at all games, and reveals the true uruguayan spirit – singing, yelling, chanting, and drumming their solidarity for their team. Going to the games, and talking about the teams and players with friends is a treasured memory I have from my time in Uruguay.
