The club in my heart

I love football. I have always loved this sport. There is something with the game that makes me feel very special feelings. Football or soccer as some say is the beautiful game – Joga Bonito. My club is Malmö FF. I was 5 years old the first time I watched a game live at the old stadium in Malmö. From the first moment I was lost to the game and to the club, Malmö FF. The giant stadium, the crowd, the game, the players, the sky-blue shirts – and the happiness when we scored and won. I can remember it as if it was yesterday. It is one of my first memories in life and one of the happiest. It is a special feeling to follow a club, a special kind of love. Because millions of people around the world know what I am talking about. The passion of the biggest sport in the world. Malmö FF is the biggest and most successful club in Sweden. We have won 21 league titles, more than any other Swedish club, we have 14 cup titles, we played the final of Champions League in 1989 – and most important – we are the home mother club of the best football player in the world ever, Zlatan Ibrahimović. In 2012 we got a new Stadium, Swedbank. Our stadium is our home castle and it has a tremendous atmosphere that has been feared by huge clubs like Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Shachtar and Olympiakos in the UEFA Champions League the last seasons. Above the players entrance to the pitch of the MFF stadium there is a sentence with special words; “Vi står som en för klubben alla – Vi skall segra men inte falla” (We are one, we are our club, we will conquer and never fall). See the photo above. The players hit the wall and the magic words with their hands every time they enter the field to play for Malmö. We want out players to be proud to play in our sky-blue shirts. And they are. The club has a winner mentality. Only victories counts. I follow my club always. Every day, wherever I am in the world. I have two friends that follow every practice at the stadium, every game – home and away – they are at the club every day. And they both independently send me reports from games, practices, press conferences. I watch as many games I can live and otherwise on a stream through the Internet.I love my town, I love my club, I love my team. And I always will. Malmö FF is in my heart.
