How often do you attend games of your team?

A lot of people support a team that's not local, so they rarely, if ever, get the chance to attend their games. But a lot of local fans also don't attend games much. Like me, for example. I'm a Benfica supporter from Lisbon, so it's not hard for me to attend games, but I've been to an unimpressive total of 7 games in my life. And the first one was in the 2000/2001 season already. Also, I've only been to home games and none of them games have been exactly big. No derbies or European competition games. Also, never attended a Portugal NT game in my life.

Why don't I really go to games? Well, for starters, nowadays it's easier than ever to just watch games without needing to leave the house. Which saves you money. Plus, I'm not a season ticket holder and don't really care for going to the stadium. I also don't go to concerts despite being a big fan of music. I just find both things a waste of money and I got better things to spend it on like food, bills, etc. A lot of people find this strange, but it's how I am.

So, to answer the question, I rarely attend games. Last game i went to was in 2014 already. And for the record my W-D-L record at games is 6-1-0. Not bad

What about you?

Re: How often do you attend games of your team?

The only team I support that is anywhere near me is the San Francisco Giants, and San Francisco is a giant trash heap of human feces and syringes, so not often.

Wish I lived in one of the nicer areas of England, I'd go to every Liverpool match I could.

Re: How often do you attend games of your team?

I support England cricket team , to be honest I can watch as it's expensive as fuck to go to lords , stay in a hotel , travel costs it would be cheaper to go see Wrestlemania in the USA lol.watching jofra archer destroy the Aussie cricket team today was great , damn he bowls over 90 mph ffs he hit the Aussie bloke on the grill of his helmet ! Kudos to the future Sir of cricket Ben Stokess my favorite cricket player he got a 100 not out today batting, tbh even after winning the 50 over cricket I thought we would get beat as test cricket is different to limited overs cricket we are down one nil hopefully we get a draw and get a win the next game .Some say it's boring not me I like it !!

Peace .

The only local team I support is the Washington Capitals, and I make it out to a few games every season. For a while there, I would get down to Miami every winter for a Dolphins game, but I haven’t gone in years.

Re: How often do you attend games of your team?

Pittsburgh Steelers: 2-3 home games a year, the games my dad doesn't want to go to so he gives his season ticket to me
Pitt Panthers college football: 4-6 home games a year, sometimes an away game. Hail to Pitt
Pitt Panthers college basketball: 10-12 home games a year, sometimes an away game (usually vs Syracuse)
Pittsburgh Penguins: 1-2 home games a year
Pittsburgh Pirates: 0 games a year fuck their owner who only cares about making a guaranteed profit every year and accordingly keeps payroll in the goddamned basement

There has been an AEWakening... have you felt it?

I’ve done it once and that’s good enough. Hate the traffic and crowds.

Re: How often do you attend games of your team?

The only two teams that I really support are the NY Giants and NY Yankees. I'm good for at least a Yankee game every year. I usually go in the spring when it's just really nice out at the stadium. And if my schedule allows it I'll do my best to make it to a playoff game. I haven't been to a Giants game in years. The games that you want to go are expensive. The ones that aren't expensive are shitty and usually in the cold. I will be going to the Giants/Jets game this year though. I was better at in when I was in college in Philadelphia. I adopted the 76ers as my team and saw a bunch of their games when I was down there.

I like going to stuff though. I've been on a recent fighting kick and I've ended up at a few interesting places. A hotel in a western New York on a weeknight for kickboxing? I was there in the front row when I was in town for a work conference. I ended up drunk at the Hulu Theater in MSG after a Yankee game and say ringside for a kickboxing show. I'm going to travel to Orlando over Columbus Day weekend and I'll take my brother to the UFC card in Tampa.

And I still see a good amount of wrestling shows live.

I support teams of my state to infinity, but I don't go to enough games at all.

Re: How often do you attend games of your team?

I'm from the Boston area, I've been to a few Sox games and one Bruins game. Oddly enough, the only sport I consistently watch is Football, but Pats tickets are super expensive. I'm gonna try to get to a game this season. I can't go the rest of my life without seeing the greatest quarterback of all time.

Re: How often do you attend games of your team?

only local pro team is the Saskatchewan Rush in the National Lacrosse League.

I have season tickets and have never missed a game since they moved here 4 years ago. (Granted it's only 11-12 games a season). Also gone to a couple away games in Calgary and Vancouver.
