Having been on one of the major matches “El Clasico” in the stadium (Final Copa del Ray 2017 between “Real Madrid” and Their rivals “Barcelona“) I can tell that it is not just about the football, it was definitely more than just a football match. The love and enthusiasm I saw and felt were so overwhelming. I’ve never felt that way in any of the events I’ve attended through my past years. The Chants and the joy of the fans of both teams, regarding the result of the match, were so astonishing.. that is why I will never ever forget that experience.
