The football season has been exciting so far for football fans in Nigeria and all over the world.The love runs so deep,and it has been like that for decades.Considering the Nigerian factor,many Nigerians prefer to watch football matches at viewing centres even though they have DSTV at the comfort of their homes.
Well,the reason behind this is not far-fetched as these viewing centres are made up of colourful people.Also,the fun and action of different kinds of people you will meet at the viewing centres makes football games more interesting to watch.
Here is a list of six groups of people you will possibly meet at football viewing centres.
1)The Die-Hard fans
These people are everything but plastic fans.They can do everything to show the love that they have for the clubs they support.You will find them at the viewing centre clad in their club's jersey 30 minutes before kick-off, sitting comfortably in a vantage point.These set of people do not like to miss any moment.
These are the football equivalent of ITKs.They think they know more than the managers who are actually getting paid for running the show and selecting the team.They get off on criticizing the managers decision, thinking they can do a better job.
You will find these set of people with rolls of bet tickets,nervous and anxious.The only reason they come to watch these matches,is to keep track of the matches on their betslips.These set of people hardly enjoy these football matches because all their thoughts are on the teams on their betslips.They are always thinking about the stakes and praying for these teams to come through for them.They hardly leave the viewing centre feeling happy.
4)The Hubs Of Knowledge.￼
These set of people have been following the game for many years and have gained a lot of football knowledge and enough confidence to let people know how deep their knowledge runs.They also fact-check everything everyone says in the viewing centre.These set of people would have been the cool people if they didn't like to talk.
5)The Ones There For The Banter.￼
To these set of people, the game of football is all fun.They hardly take it very serious.These set of people just come to the viewing centre to have as much laughs as they can,even to the chagrin of fans of the losing team.They make jokes at their expense and have a swell of time, teasing the fans of the losing team about how inept their players are.These set of people can be very annoying at times.
6)The Irritable And Insufferable Fans.
These set of people have little or no joy.The little joy they have will fly out of the window the moment it is confirmed that the team they are supporting are already losing the match,no thanks to the banter aimed at them.They become Insufferable,and gawk at everyone,daring them to make more jokes.
