Berlin Soccer Fan zone of the UEFA 2008 Soccer Tournament [11 pics!]

Discussion in 'Photojournalism, Candids and Street Photography' started by DanielD, Jun 30, 2008.

  1. Hello,
    yesterday was the final match of the European Soccer Tournament, Germany vs. Spain. To make it short, Spain won the final well deserved.

    I visited the fan zone (we call it Fanmeile - fan mile) in the heart of Berlin, 5 hours before the match and it was already filling well. I took a ride on a big wheel and took some grab shots later on before I left again as I was invited to watch the game with friends. So here are a few of my pictures:

    Sorry for the big pile of pictures, I hope you enjoyed them nevertheless. At least I can be sure you now know the German flag. :wink:

    Thanks for looking.

    Great shots!
     
  3. That was a great game. Both teams played well, the best one won! And the real treat--US mainstream network TV carried it, so I could watch at home!! (Thank you ABC).

    Those are great pictures. I've lived thru similar things over cricket in India!

    Nice photos, the best team won. Spain played well and well deserved the victory..
     
  5. Amen to that! It is nice to finally see the American networks broadcast the Futbol matches.

    Ballack's Blood Offering just wasn't enough to appease the Futbol Gods. Spain just simply outplayed them with one-touch passes and finesse. Well played by Spain. Deutschland... nich so.

    These are neat photos and thank you for sharing them. I would have liked to have been there.
