    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…

    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…

    Iran – 2018

    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…

    Panama – 2018

    It took me a while to find supporters of Panama. I had not had any significant leads before their first game, I knew I would find a row of cars with Panama flags and a bar packed with supporters somewhere…

    Peru – 2018

    There were a number of great bars and restaurants to watch the World Cup with Peru fans in the GTA, but I’m so glad I stuck with my gut and headed to Mochica on College St. Not only was it…

    Spain – 2018

    What a wild game! Down early, ahead late, only to draw in the final minutes by a hat-trick from Ronaldo, it’s an instant classic. Of course, I only watched the first half with the Spanish fans gathered at Tapas at…

    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 semi-final game! Turns out to be…

    Russia – 2014

    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 have a specific location scouted out.…
