2006 ACN - Live!


I arranged with my friends everything concerning next day’s football game on Friday. We decided to meet at 4 and then use one car to make things easier.

We talked the next day and we decided to make it 4:30. So, we finally met on Saturday at 5:15 that was a big mistake!

I thought that we are not allowed to enter the stadium after 5:30, I was preparing myself that we won’t be able to attend the game as the traffic has been unbelievable, the good thing was that all these people were not nervous or irritated on the contrary they were painting their faces, wearing these hats and having fun.

No one seemed to be upset or even worried, finally we went and parked at 6:20.
We literally ran to find where we will be seated. I took a look at the stadium and believe me it was spectacular. I had my camera with me, managed to take some pictures.

We enjoyed the game very much, there were thousands of people all happy and enthusiastic, the females participation was very remarkable :).

The only problem for us was the extremely cold weather but it didn’t hinder anything.

I headed home after that, it took me TWO hours as some people were blocking Nozha st. and again no one complained, just the horn Peep Peep PeepPeePeep!

The whole experience has been wonderful, I want to attend the next game, even my sister wants to go :).

But we weren’t prepared enough, we didn’t even had a flag while the other people were branded :).

I have never seen that before and I believe people were never been that passionate and enthusiastic.

    Hi Psychicwizdom,

    LOL... I am Nesreen, surprise ...huh ? :))).
    Yes Egypt is hosting the African Cup of Nations, it's a big football event that everyone is so excited about. plus the fact that football is the most popular game for Egyptians.
    So glad to hear from you, take care.

    Still haven't got any, last time I had 1st category invitations. but everyone said the 2nd and 3rd category are much more fun, but they are not available this time and I can't ask for invitations again, so far I am not sure if I am going to attend or not.
    Anyways, it's good that you managed to get tickets although I hate this black market abuse too.
    But I assure you, it's gonna be a very pleasant experience.
    Just be there early so you can choose your seat.
