The most popular sport all over the country, there is an amazing football passion in Spain. People start to play this sport at school and keep their love for football until they get old. Every weekend you can feel this amazing football passion when you walk close to some Spanish bar with the match on the TV.
Real Madrid and Barcelona are the most popular football teams in Spain. They have followers all over the country. When they play a match all the bars and stadiums are crowded.
There are also other important football teams in Spain like Valencia, Athletico de Madrid or Sevilla. Every year they fight for playing in European competition – Champions League.
Every match, which Real Madrid and Barcelona play between themselves is called “derbi”. I strongly recommend you to go to see a “derbi” match to some Spanish bar or to the stadium. You will feel the real passion of thousands of fans and amazing atmosphere.
