So this past weekend we finally got to have the international friendly soccer game between Valencia and New York. I can honestly say I had my doubts going into this. Not about the game itself but about things like attendance, the weather and other peoples enjoyment. Turns out I didn’t really need to worry as it was a perfect day and everyone seemed to be loving the game. I can say that I was pretty surprised at the amount of people wearing soccer gear. It also surprised me to see the actual depth of that as well. People were wearing tops from all sorts of different teams from all sorts of different leagues no worries that someone ran out and bought a shirt to fit in kind of thing. Hopefully with that 15,000 plus attendance and the fact that people genuinely enjoyed themselves as will lead to more games. One thing though, they need a merchandise table next time. Seriously.
