I never noticed that they had handles in there. Truly impressive.

Tifo. Translated "The place in my heart" referring to a song about Söderstadion.

Thanks for posting, this is great stuff. Question about this march... With so many people, is there singing? If so how do you keep the front and back in unison? We often have a problem with this during our march.

There are sining, and yes you are right the back and front are often not unison. In Hammarby we don't use Capo that much so we are used to that anyone can start a song. So there are often different songs sung at the same time in the march. We also often sing the same song for long time (as long as its good noise of course) this way the song can "travel" all the way to the back and get unison.

people get amazed at that stuff, but this fdoes not happen every day. and then they compare it to ou rmarch.

i bet that if we had our last game at clink we would have quite the march to the march to whatever new stadium we had.

people should always keep this sort of stuff in mind when dropping their jaw at stuff.

That was the last home opener at their stadium, not the last match there.

Marches for home openers, derbies, and other big matches are huge in Stockholm (at least for DIF and Hammarby). This is Hammarby's march for their home opener last year. The scale is more or less the same as this year.



FuzzyForeigner has a point though. For me it's kind of weird (but also kind of cool) that there is a big march for all Sounders home matches.

And by the way, I think there are a few lessons to be learned from that video. Stuff that I'm sure some think I've repeated ad nauseum, but there is a reason why they are able to keep a big march tightly together.

To be fair at that time we accually thought that it was our last premiere at our stadium. It was supposed to be ready this spring but was delayed. But you are right its about the same numbers every year.
Dont now any other team that marches to their home stadium(almost all teams does it in their away game in Sweden however). But i really like the idea of having it like a traditional thing to do it every match as in Sounders, building up to the match and making you anxious for it to start :-)

Our rivals AIK had a big march at their first game of the season to. They have a new arena this season and made a thing to marsh with the team bus from their old arena to their new. About 20 000 people was in that corteo. Dont now if it was much singing however.



By the way in Hammarby we allways have problem with the ticket line when all the people come at the same time in the premiere, not rare that the guys in the back of the line misses the tifo. Do you have the same problem in Seattle?

Our standard game day security checks are pretty perfunctory, though. They funnel people through a quick bag check (no pat downs), and there's a good 10+ lines that you can go in both for bag check and ticket scanning. Usually it's only a few minutes to get into the stadium even if you arrive with a crowd.
