Groundhopper Guides continues to grow! Say hello to Michael, an avid soccer fan from New York City who will be managing our football ticket sales process.

We’ve now got a team member in Ecuador, one in North Carolina, another in Italy, and our founder is on a groundhopping trip in England and Europe. Quite the international crew for a little Portland-based outfit that started with a guy having fun at a game.

Here’s what Michael had to say about himself:

Hello from the Big Apple! My name is Michael, and I am excited to be a part of the Groundhopper team.

man leaning against building on empty street in EuropeI was born and raised in New York City. Being able to live in such a melting pot, it opened up my eyes to new cultures, food, and ideas! Immediately after college, I started to travel around the world. Traveling avidly has become my passion & hobby, and I plan to one day see all the countries in the world! I also use this time to attend soccer matches in various countries. I have been to three World Cups, and made it a goal to go to every World Cup!

I still vividly remember the first game I ever attended, which was during the World Cup of 1994. I remember the fans, the singing, the atmosphere, and the joy around everyone. That’s the moment that made me love the beautiful game, and the passion for soccer remains as strong as ever today!

My goal is to bring that passion and excitement for the beautiful game to you! The Groundhopper team makes that happen to new clients every day, and I am excited to be a part of it, and get started.
