Photo daily – 06.13.07 – A Sea of Scarves

The Pitch Invasion Flickr group page is growing rapidly, so it was hard to pick one out for today’s featured photo. The pictures already show the full range of football fan culture: from pyrotechnics to drunken geordies to those who just want to watch the game. Thanks to all those that have contributed.

One item that crops up a lot is the scarf. What is it about scarves and football fans? Whatever it is, the picture below is a particularly impressive demonstration: look closely, and it’s hard to spot more than a handful of people in this entire crowd not raising their Bursaspor (Turkey) scarf.
