• 1. CLEMENT WENT EVERY MATCH WITH HIS ROOSTER

    The Gallic rooster is one of the national symbols of France and a version of it can be seen on the jerseys of the French football team. Probably Mr Tomaszewski, also known as Clement d'Antibes, was inspired by the symbol and owned his cock as a fan-mate. The Baltazar cock is gaining popularity at the 1998 World Cup. He has become a familiar face at international tournaments after starting to bring a live bird to matches. A cockerel named Balthazar is the unofficial French football mascot for nearly 20 years, and everywhere the French team goes, Tomaszewski and his feathered friend tend to show up too. Legendary France fan Clement d'Antibes was attended his 254th France match in 2018. He has attended 8 world cups and travelled across different countries. True definition for passion! True story for Go Far!

  • 2. ALI RENTED A CRANE TO WATCH THE MATCH!

    A soccer fan in Turkey found a creative way to bypass a one-year stadium ban to watch a match. Thus, it proves that there is no obstacle to the love of football! Even laws! Ali Demirkaya, a soccer fan in Turkey who was banned from Denizli Atatürk stadium for unspecified reasons, has taken the only reasonable course to watch the game. He rented a crane. From high above just beyond the stadium limits, the diehard Denizlispor fan watched his team vanquish Gaziantepspor 5-0. He even led the crowd in a chant. "That match was very important for our team. I had to go to the police station to sign a paper to show that I am not watching the match in the stadium. Then I quickly went to rent the crane," told Demirkaya.

  • 3. MAURICIO TATTOOED HIS TEAM JERSEY ON HIS BODY

    Maurício dos Anjos is a bigger soccer fan than most of us. Yes, you might know your team's win percentage for the past 40 years, or the name of every manager to have ever graced a Premier League pitch, but have you had your club's uniform tattooed onto your own body? He did it! After a year of visits to the tattoo parlor, the 33-year-old Brazilian finally finished getting his torso covered with his team, the Flamengo's strip. The tattoo, which covers 40 percent of his body, is a replica of the top-tier side's 2015 home shirt. The design, which took 32 sessions and over 90 hours to complete, covers his entire torso and back, from his waist to his neck, including his shoulders and arms.

  • 4. MEXICAN FAN TELLS WIFE HE’S GOING TO GET CIGARETTES, FLIES TO RUSSIA FOR CONFEDERATIONS CUP INSTEAD

    Die-hard soccer fans are known to do just about anything to see their team up close and personal, but Mexican soccer fan Arturo Garcia took this to a new level for the Confederations Cup. In the lie of the century, the Puebla resident told his wife he was going to the store for cigarettes. Instead of getting his cigarettes, however, Garcia instead took a flight to Russia to watch his beloved national team play in the tournament. The El Tri fan revealed that he spent his life savings on the trip. The trip itself was more physically demanding than expected: first, he had to travel to his hometown, where he flew to Germany. It was there that he injured his Achilles heel, but do you think that stopped him from making the last leg drive to Russia? Of course not. It’s safe to say that Garcia will forget all about his injury if he can watch his team win the Confederations Cup.
