My first volleyball match

by : 

Yesterday I was invited to watch a volleyball match at the local stadium. It was a home game so my town, Molfetta, was playing against Trento, a team from the North of Italy. I had never been to watch volleyball before because it was not a very popular sport where I grew up. I had seen a football match before though and really enjoyed the atmosphere.

Although we arrived quite late, we managed to get a seat during the first set. We were in the front row so we were close to the players. They were all very tall. Molfetta’s team was dressed in white shirts whereas Trento’s players were wearing black. The downside was that we didn’t have a clear view of the net so we couldn’t really see where the ball was going. We went to stand up at the top of the stairs and had a much better view of the whole stadium.

The atmosphere was very lively. Between sets, there were people moving around and loud music playing. During the match, the crowd cheered and clapped. There was a group of Molfetta fans that were playing drums and singing songs to support the team. They waved a red and white flag that represented the colours of the city. The final set was especially close but in the end, Trento won the match with three sets against zero. I still enjoyed the match even though my team lost because volleyball is a very impressive sport to watch. It’s amazing how high the players can jump!

I'm keen on volleyball and I wish I could watch a match in stadium; World League games has just taken place in Tehran and I had a great opportunity to meet my favourite players but I missed that chance because the problem is girls are not allowed to go to stadiums in the country where I was born :(
However, I watch all the games on TV but it seems nothing compared with the joy & excitement of watching them live in a stadium!

You are quite right but in my opinion the best amateur sport is football, as is volleyball rules in the game but if you want to live a better experience have to go watch the soccer.

I don't go to sporting events very often, usually i watch them on TV. I don't think to see the match live, it's more comfortable to enjoy it at home in front of television. I have ever watched football match at the stadium, it was really fun especially when one of the team had a chance to make a goal or they made it, all of people on the stadium yelled and cheered. But after the game was over, i have to jostled to get out of the stadium, luckily i was fine as i got out, sometimes people hurt their body and it was completely annoying.
My favourite sport is badminton, it is also a very impressive sport to watch and i never skip to watch badminton match on TV.

You're right: sporting events can be very crowded and everyone jostles one another to get out of the stadium. The match I went to was in quite a small stadium so luckily I didn't have a problem. I think that it is nice to watch a sports match on TV because you don't miss any of the action!
