Argentina_World_Cup_Toronto_31

Argentina – 2014

Sky Ranch Restaurant was unanimously picked as the place to be in Toronto to watch Argentina in the World Cup. I hadn’t been there yet, and what better time to go than during a...

Russia_World_Cup_Toronto_01

Russia – 2014

I didn’t think it was going to be so difficult to find the Russians. As one of only four new teams in the 2014 World Cup for me to photograph, they were an ESSENTIAL...

USA_Toronto_World_Cup_002

United States – 2014

Stopped by The Office to see what kind of United States support they actually attracted. Despite the number of Americans in Toronto, they are rarely visually patriotic north of the border and in the...

Colombia_Fans_World_Cup_Toronto_008

Colombia – 2014

I have to admit, I kind of stumbled into this one, but what a great find. I had heard the Colombian community in Toronto was around the Keele and Sheppard area, but I didn’t...

Uruguay_Fans_World_Cup_Toronto_016

Uruguay – 2014

Another fantastic game, huge surprise, and I was so excited to be with the Uruguay fans when they scored their first goal against England. I wish more countries made their own club like Club...

Greece_World_Cup_Toronto_13

Greece – 2014

I stopped by the Danforth for about ten minutes of a rather uninteresting game in the World Cup 2014. Turns out, I missed the great Greek game, which shut down the Danforth on June...

Chile_World_Cup_Toronto_018

Chile – 2014

Wow. Spain is out, Chile has advanced. Still one game to go in the first round. Wow. Deep breath…. and I don’t even really like soccer, but wow, deep breath… Unfortunately, I missed the...

Cameroon_World_Cup_Toronto_01

Cameroon – 2014

Having already checked out The Suya Spot and Harlem Underground as potential African World Cup Team watching spots, I decided to check out Yauca’s Lounge. After the closing of Chez La Belle Africaine, a...

Mexico_World_Cup_Toronto_013

Mexico – 2014

Although the game finished as a 0-0 draw, it was a fantastic game and very much considered a win by the Mexican fans. I decided to head over to El Rincon Mexicano to see...

Belgium_World_Cup_Toronto_006

Belgium – 2014

Huge first-game comeback win for Belgium. While these photos may not be the best representation of what this venue or fan base can be in Toronto, there is no question this will be a...

Ghana_Fans_World_Cup_Toronto_006

Ghana – 2014

The Harlem Underground on Queen Street West in Toronto has called themselves the “Africa 2014 World Cup HQ” so I had to go down to check out a game with an african team playing....

Iran_Fans_World_Cup_Toronto_017

Iran – 2014

Easily considered the least exciting game of the 2014 World Cup, you wouldn’t know it if you were watching it with the Iranian fans in the Boston Pizza at Yonge and Sheppard. This place...

Nigeria_Fans_World_Cup_Toronto_005

Nigeria – 2014

The Suya Spot on Weston Road is the African Nation World Cup headquarters in Toronto, no question. They don’t only have jerseys and flags from all four of the subsaharan African countries proudly on...

Germany_Fans_World_Cup_Toronto_001

Germany – 2014

I missed the first goal and was so disappointed. It’s so fun to be with a huge crowd of fans when their team scores, and this group of German fans were ready for a...
