I got the chance to watch my very first professional soccer game about a week ago and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
I know a lot about enjoying sports in Toronto with teams such as the Raptors, Argos and Blue Jays that an opportunity arised with the help of Jonathan Sinden @JonSinden from Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment. I was able to invite Twitter friends to a TFC game on a sunny afternoon. Each person also received 1st row seating and a collectable scarf. Thanks to MLSE, Jonathan Sinden and Dave Barker @dnbarker from the TFC football club
Here are the collectable scarves we each received for the game! Yes, those are my flourescent shoe laces!
At the game I noticed that the fans or as the football fans call it "Supporter" groups really get into the game. They chant, shout and scream like I've never heard in a different sporting venue. Win or lose you can tell these fans are diehard. In this pic the fans are so raucous that fans sometimes get carried away! See the broken chair for details. Mind you it was fixed in less than 5 minutes!
Just to add more to the already exciting time at a TFC game we also had the opportunity to hang out on field level to take photos and touch the real grass. Thanks to David Barker.
Now with all the excitement and fun in the sun I had to have myself a wobbly pop. This was the first time I had the Carlsberg beer and it was a thirst quencher to say the least. Lucky for me Carlsberg reached out to me and I'm telling you about a special promotion they have right now. If you visit the Facebook fanpage Ideserveone.ca You have a chance to win a Carlsberg prize pack every Monday. So check out the App here too! CarlsbergCanada Good luck!
Check out the Carlsberg drinks! I know you want one :-)
I thought this was funny! the game within the game.
All in all, it was a great time had by all. So check out TFC to purchase tickets to upcoming games and visit IDeserveOne for a weekly chance at prizes from Carlsberg Canada.
So tell me why you want a Carlsberg?
