As mentioned earlier, this happened again… 

Globe Pub FC (with Section 8 Chicago recruits) vs Aston Villa Supporters USA. Globe pub was victorious with a score of 4-1, though the Villans put in a good fight after drinking all day at the pub. 

I’m hoping friendly one-off games like these continue to happen - it’s a great way to play football with friends and meet new folks as well.

Footy love, nikhak

p.s. I’m on the lefthand side in this photo as well - third from left, hiding in the shadow of Camryn. Five females reppin’ in this match, which was three more than the friendly last summer. And I must say, one (or both) of the female Villans were probably the best out of their whole squad. Hats off to them.

Last summer Aston Villa were in town to play Chicago Fire in a friendly, so Section 8 Chicago and Villa supporters decided to play in a small friendly themselves. I was lucky enough to get in on the action, which took place on Toyota Park’s practice field. It was a great time and the combination of supporters really reminded me of what this game is all about - beauty, community, friendship - the love of a shared sport.

In less than two hours I’ll be playing in a similar friendly against Aston Villa supporters that was organized by this super awesome guy, who is for a the Chicago group of Aston Villa Supporters <—- may not have phrased that properly, but you get the gist. 

Either way, happy Friday! Hope you’re all getting a little footy action on during your weekend.

Wish me luck!

Footy love, nikhak

p.s. I’m on the left hand side of this pic (first row, white shorts) - looking down and the goofy fella laying down in front with a beer in hand. What better way to end a match!?
