Supporting your local team

It’s not all about being the crème de la crème with a Galactico-packed line-up. The rivalries against the leading clubs in Europe to display who manages to get highly-strung prima donnas to gel more than just their hair are played out across a season and hog the headlines. Then there are the local teams – the ones that are part of the community and have their fans who follow their downs more than the ups.England talks about the romance of the FA Cup – where giants are killed and heroes from the lower echelons of the footballing pyramid enjoy the headlines and the chance to play against their heroes. In Vienna there is much more to it than just Rapid or Austria scrapping for the spoils in the Wiener Derby, without or without the backdrop of marauding Ultras converging on the Happel-Stadion. Not all fans are green or violet.
