Florence vs. Rome Soccer Game

After the bike tour, we made it just in time for the Florence vs. Rome soccer game. These two teams are big rivals, the way K-State and KU are. People croweded the streets in purple, the soccer team's color. I am representing K-State : )

The stadium was crowded and loud. I was close to the field and had a great view of the mountain!

Each team's logo.

Names of each Florentine player.

Just us excited about the game!

This is when the players first came out. The crowd went wild!

The game when it first started. Florence made its first goal within the first half of the game.

The Roman section is gated. They are such big rivals that no one sits close to that section and security guards are a must. Italians can get dangerous during soccer games!

When Florence scored the first goal, the crowd went wild and ran towards the Roman section. Not even the guards could stop them!

Fans were screaming and chanting traditional songs in Italian. I had no clue what they were saying.

It was a great game! Florence won 4 to 1. It scored its last three goals during the second half.

After the game

After the game, we celebrated at a restaurant with other friends and ate pizza.
