It doesn’t matter whether you call it
soccer or football – whichever one you call it, we apologise for using the
other word – there is just something about The Beautiful Game that sets it
apart from all other sports. The passion we feel, the love for our team (GGMU!!),
the connection to players and club, following a team isn’t just following, it’s
That’s what makes watching a brilliant
passing play, fancy footwork and an ankle-breaking nutmeg, or an overhead kick
from what seems like an impossible angle all the more beautiful.
It’s our passion, the connection to every inch of the play, every step and especially every step-over. We live every moment, connected to the team as if we were the 12th player on the pitch and when that goal comes… magic. The pure euphoria that follows a play, a goal, a win, nothing comes close. Atleta.ca is as passionate about soccer as we are connecting developing players with the coaches they need.
You don’t need to travel far back in time to recall a special moment in a soccer game. No doubt the die-hard fans and followers among you can rhyme off a personal top 10 for each of your favourite players or your club. Soccer is the world’s sport, enjoyed in more countries than any other. As fans and players, we enjoy a community and talent pool more diverse than any city or country. We are exposed to different styles of play from different parts of the world and our game is better for it. There’s a romance that comes with that, soccer being so global. David vs. Goliath clashes are a regular occurrence wherein underdogs etch their name in history through beautiful movements and composed defending. -side note: make sure to always thank your defence after the game – goals don’t matter without clean sheets.
And every four years, the entire world comes to life. Chanting and cheering, singing and dancing, backing their nation to win the World Cup; all in the name of love. Love for equality and cooperation, and love for soccer.
Everyone has a moment when they realised they fell in love with soccer. Whether they are watching their favourite club, their home country, or out on the pitch themselves having just completed a play you didn’t think you could pull off. …but then you did. There’s that euphoria again. Its ok, I just got a little chill too.
