    If you live in or near the big cities, CL games are pretty routine at restaurants/ sports bars. Problem is getting out of work since the timing is absolutely useless

    Not many friends who are into Barca though. Mostly EPL bandwagoners here.

    Ah! I assume you live in a big city and have caught games in those bars. Atleast on weekends...

    Yeah from my observation and personal experiences in America, I did see a quite a few casual PL fans wearing United, Chelsea jerseys and stuff. Some of the Hispanics(Mexicans, Puerto Rican) were pretty much into Spanish and Italian Football. Had a Mexican cab driver in the US who was a Real Madrid fan and a massive James Rodriguez fanboy. Also, wouldn't shut up about how the mainstream Americans considered Soccer to be a "girly sport".

    In America, the difference in knowledge between casual and proper Soccer fans is fuckin humongous. Footy has a niche audience there. Like the few of the proper fans really know their stuff while I cringed everytime some of the casuals confidently gave their takes.

    In LA there are Barcelona Penya clubs where they host watch parties at specific bars.


    Speaking of watching in big European cities, I was in Barcelona in 2019 when they were playing Man U in quarters. I was surprised by just how many Brit fans there were in the bars. I had a bit of a hard time finding a non Brit dominated bar.

    I think Brit, German, and Italian fans (to a lesser degree) are really vocal about their support.

    Spanish fans are a bit spoiled internationally....either you support the most successful CL team of all time or you support the team with some of the greatest CL sides of all time. Spanish fans are more "causal"-like in my experience

    British Fans are drunk, barbaric hooligans.

    Italians are vile cunts who create ruckus everywhere. Especially those ultras(ultra clowns).

    Spanish fans are more mellow but seemed to lack passion and energy.

    The less said about the Frenchies, the better!

    I liked German fans the most. They were better behaved but had a lot of passion at the same time. Much less annoying.
