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 hashtag #groundhopping on Twitter.
There’s also a terrific website where you can track all the grounds you’ve been to, as well as post 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 63 of the current 92 league grounds (81 overall including the US, Spain, Netherlands and Italy) and I aim to be the first American to “do the 92.”
