Hi ;)
Maybe it's a little strange for girl, but I am a football fun. I think that football nourishes our mind and body. The game teaches us discipline and co-operation. It is very popular in India, Holland, Russia and America as well. It teaches us to face the challenge of life with fortitude, confidence and courage. The sufficient exercise to our limbs given by football helps us to grow well. My favourite Ukrainian team is a 'Shakhtor' (in Ukrainian 'Шахтар'). This team playing in the Premier League of Ukraine. One of four teams never left the big leagues Ukrainian championship since its inception. The team is often called the "miners". Also very popular nickname - "Moles" is used enemies of the club, although in recent years it has spread among fans. Also, the logo ultras "Miner" depicts crossed hammers in a circle.
So I like to go in stadiums to support my favorite team and just I like to go to the stadium for see famous footballists <3

Hi Demy. I think it's not strange for you. I love football too but ,as you know, Iranian women never go to the stadium to watch football. I agree to you'r idea about football. In Iran this sport is more popular than the other sports. when the national team has played, more than 120 thousand people go to the stadium to watch. There are two popular team in Iran that never left the big leagues. The team names is PERSPOLIS and ESTEGHLAL. Perspolis and Esteghlal color are red and blue respectively. In Iran everyone is fun of those two teams. My favorite team is PERSPOLIS because i love red.

Hey, emitis. Thanks for reply =)
I complitaly agree with you, you are fuly right. In Ukraine womans can go in stadiums but they don't go there. Only some girls you can see at stadium. Our womans like more shopping, me too I like, but as for me it's intresting to spend my free time in a different ways. So sometimes I go in stadium with my futher. But mostly with my friends and girlfriends =) It's really cool to seat and to worry in my thoughts to encourage my team.
I like your words ' My favorite team is PERSPOLIS because i love red'. I hope that you like this team not only because it has a red colour =)
