12th Man survey: British football fans voted the most passionate in Europe

Champions League sponsor Mastercard held a survey named ‘The 12th Man’ to understand which fans are the most passionate in Europe. British football fans led this survey (32% vote), ahead of 16% for Spanish fans and 12% for Italian fans.

“I would cancel my honeymoon to watch my team play in the UEFA Champions League final”- stated several football lovers.

25% admitted that they would be ready to take “sudden” leave from work and 20% said that they would miss a close friend’s birthday to attend an important game.

It’s interesting to know that 11% of Brits admitted that they could not date a supporter of their football team’s rivals revealing that “It would be an absolute deal-breaker in the relationship”. It’s also funny that 15% of them would be willing to give the relationship a try, even if they believe there may be relationship problems sooner or later.

Only 31% of Brits have been to support their team abroad, compared to Spanish fans (61%) and Italian fans (56%).
