I will admit it. I hate football. I don't understand the game or why the players earn so much. However on the 30th January, I went to my first ever professional football match.
I volunteered to go as my dad had a spare ticket. I thought it would be good experience and nice to spend time with my dad. I'm honestly not sure what I expected.
The pitch looked smaller in real life than on the TV screen which I thought was odd, though that could have just been down to where I was sitting. I didn't understand most of the rules but it was easy to see that the opposition dived a few times. It was shocking to see how many times the players headed the ball in the match. I had always thought headers didn't happen often. It was a good match and I surprised myself by not hating it. I quite enjoyed it and even found myself getting annoyed when the opposition took possession of the ball. It was a shame we didn't win but I did get to see our team score a goal.
Overall it was an amazing atmosphere. It was very busy and loud due to the amount of fans there. I enjoyed the chants; many of which made me laugh. I still don't understand why football players get paid so much but somethings will never change.
I enjoyed the experience and you never know, I might go again one day.
