    England – 2018

    This wasn’t my first attempt at Opera Bob’s to watch an England 2018 World Cup match. It’s a small place and they reach capacity pretty quickly, especially when England is doing something pretty magical. I had missed the previous match,…

    England – 2018

    As Scallywags is an authentic English football headquarters, and the fact I had got some amazing photos of Colombia fans in Toronto 2014, I decided to say put for the afternoon match. The anticipation for the clash of England and…

    Sweden – 2018

    This is one legitimate Sweden fan, and they are harder to find than you think. I had suggestions from the Consulate General of Sweden, Toronto to try either the Gull & Firkin in the Beaches or Scallywags. I started at…

    Belgium – 2018

    In the knockout round, when choosing which team to photograph, I usually go for the underdog. The theory is that if the underdog wins, then they will be even that much more pumped. If the underdog is defeated, well, it…

    Croatia – 2018

    The last time I was in Croatia Parish Park was in 2006, there were no goals in the match, it was relatively borning, but I remember it fondly and have always loved the checkered uniforms of the Croatian fans. With…

    Portugal – 2018

    There are so many great Portuguese focused bars in Toronto, it’s hard to pick just one. As for some teams, I like to just wander the most likely intersections and find a bar that looks the most intriguing. Plus, I…

    Switzerland – 2018

    Unlike the Germany game in the morning, there wasn’t quite as much tension with the Swiss fans at The Rushton on St. Clair Avenue West. It was a much fancier establishment then a lot of the other venues I’ve been…

    Germany – 2018

    Wow. Germany, the reigning world champions, will not advance to the knockout stage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. I’ve watched a lot of World Cup games here in Toronto, and this was by far the most nervously intense crowd…

    Egypt – 2018

    I do my best to photograph teams as early in the tournament as possible, ideally game one or two. With Egypt, despite heroic attempts to catch game two, I was left capturing fans for their third and final game. Considering…

    I’ve had some really great experiences with Iranian fans over my 12 years doing this project. In fact, an Iranian fan in 2006 was the first and only fan to hand me a flag from their country. I still have…
