This whole English soccer thing I’m into is called, in the UK, groundhopping. And I found a great companion site for what I do.
That’s ground (old word for stadium, like ballpark in the US) + hopping (touring) = groundhopping, or what I call being a soccer tourist. And, of course, there’s a massive community around the #groundhopping on Twitter.
There’s also a terrific website where you can track all the grounds you’ve been to, as well as posting reviews and photos.
It’s called Football Ground Map. It’s totally free and very cool.
And when you get there, say hello to yankee-groundhopper. I’ve been to 62 of the current
92 91 league grounds (80 overall including the US, Spain, Netherlands and Italy) and I aim to be the first American to “do the 92.”
