The big derby

Some might find it a bit boring that I kickstarted the Stockholmblog with some pictures from a sporting event. But few things in the capital of Sweden are more exciting in swedish football when the two twinclubs meet. AIK and Djurgårdens IF. They are called the twinclubs because they where both founded in 1891. AIK, being the team that I support, have supporters from different classes in society whilst Djurgårdens IF is regarded as a upper class team.
Therefore, with history in account, the derbygame of Stockholm is a highly regarded one and with loads of passion.
34 000 spectators where at Swedens national stadium, Råsunda stadion, and the majority of the fans where quite happy as AIK won 3-1. Their first win in a derby for four years.

The pictures you see is a phenomenon that has appeared the last seven or eight years in Sweden. Tifo-arrangement. At the first pictures 8000 fans have made the foundationyear 1891. On a given signal they turn the papers they are holding and spell AIK.
On the upper tier it stands in swedish: "115 years of love and passion. Our belief will never die".

Ranked as one of the top ten derby games in Europe in football I thought this was a good way in starting the blog! See you tomorrow =)

Hi, Alex! Welcome from Jakarta - Indonesia. Your first pictures are not boring at all! What you consider as boring in your city, are what we (from other parts of the world) might have not seen. So, keep shooting more pictures! We would love to see them :)
