Ultras “Light Up” A U-12 Match

17 Dec

Tottenham’s reserve team traveled to Poland to face Lech Poznan in an under-12 third place playoff, and one would have expected attendance to be sparse, consisting mostly of parents, friends, and scouts. Think again.

Over 1,000 ultras showed up to the match in full voice – jumping, singing, waving flags, and lighting a number of flares. On the one hand, you must be wondering why they had nothing else better to do? On the other hand, it is very cool (for lack of a better word) that they showed up as they did to support the kids and future of their club.

Unfortunately, their plan backfired as the north London youngsters fed off the rapturous atmosphere and thrashed their opponents 6-1.

The video itself is truly surreal to watch. An incredibly intimidating setting engulfing a group of young boys, and for them to have the mental toughness and wherewithal to block it out and compete on a high level. Arsenal could learn a lot from these kids.
