Friday at FIFA was FAN-tastic!

After a fun first day experiencing FIFA Women’s World Cup, we couldn’t wait to see what Friday had in store, and boy, did the fans come out in full force! Everyone was wearing their colours loud and proud. And yet, it was the camaraderie between the fans that really struck a chord. It was a joy to sit back and watch the fans show their love for the game regardless of what team they were rooting for. That never gets old. Here are a few highlights…

We can’t get enough of the cross-border love.

And certainly not enough of the patriotic pride.

It was awesome to see so many girls dancing and cheering.

Even the players were getting in on the action.

And the “U-S-A!” chant was alive and kicking.

The passion for pretzels still remains high.

The snack of the games!
