Why football around me?

Football is there when I’m down, when I’m back on my feet,
It’s there anywhere, anytime,
It’s our common ground
It unites us, It’s our religion.

Hi, I’m Shlomi and welcome to Football Around Me.

I am a nomad software developer who travels worldwide watching football, experiencing the local culture and meeting passionate fans. I’ve created Football Around Me to make these three things so much simpler for travelling fans around the world. Why don’t you give it a try?

I’ve been to every corner of the globe, experiencing derby matches in multiple competitions including:

Boca Juniors vs River Plate
Fenerbahce VS Galatasaray,
Olympiacos VS Panathinaikos
Marsille VS PSG,
Barcelona VS Real Madrid
World Cups
Champions Leagues

I came to England with a backpack and the love of football. I watched 25 games in 50 days travelling to every corner of the country. I returned home with lifelong experiences, met some unbelievable fans and the idea to create an app that would have assisted me throughout my journey in England, from transport arrangements, fixture locations to local pubs for meeting fans.

I’ve seen all the big football headliners from Maradona to Messi. I’ve had VIP experiences and visited the top football academies. Every single match and experience has been unique.

Why have I done this?

Because I find football culture fascinating! The songs, the people, the alcohol, the stories, the experiences, the energy, and the excitement from the one sport that unites everyone worldwide.
During my travels I’ve realised that more people would love to do what I’ve done - it healed me from daily life and stress and it gave me incredible experiences. However, it isn’t easy to travel to foreign countries, navigate different areas and to find football around you. Created and designed using my own personal experience this app will give you everything you need to travel round the world and create memories to last a lifetime through the best sport in the world.

Football really is there when I’m down, when I’m back on my feet,
It’s there anywhere, anytime,
It’s our common ground
It unites us,
It’s our religion.

* Football Around Me *

So yes, I’m also a programmer, and I’m also a very unorganised person.
While traveling I’ve missed flights, busses, and big matches.
Basically, I’m a mess, and have had my share of matches of missed.

To solve the problem, I’ve built myself an app. And app that will tell me:
What’s around me?
What’s near me?
Which matches?
Where are the fans sitting for pre match drink?
Where do they eat?
Where in the stadiums would I find the ultras?
Just for me to not miss out.
And then I realised, this could work for so many others!

Here is a story..
You flew out to see Arsenal? Great! But you also missed an opportunity to see so many other matches in London, right near you.

No need to research club by club, league by league and build your route.
God knows how far in London Charlton could be from Millwall, and where the heck is Luton? QPR?
And damn, I didn’t make it to Crystal Place, and also forgot Chelsea.

Okay so you have the matches down, but what about hanging out with fans?
Where in the stadium do the ultras sit? Where is the best experience? And where does everyone gather for pre-match drinks?

Bottom line, you get it, it all needs to be in one place.

So to help you enjoy, and for me to build the app, it would really help if you could answer these few short questions below
