About Us


“Homefans connects travelling football fans seeking authentic football experiences with locals.”

In Homefans, we envision football as a vehicle to connect fans and different cultures in an affordable and memorable way. That is why we created an online trusted global community where traveling fans can stay local and partake in the different match day experiences with the local touch.

Homefans is a place where fans like you meet, connect, and exchange information. A welcoming community of open-minded individuals who share your experiences. A secure space full of useful advice from fellow fans and knowledgeable locals.

A world of opportunities to connect and find fellow fans who have the same passion as you – wherever you are in the world. You’ve just found that place. Welcome to Homefans.

We’re improving the match days for fans around the world. Experiences, which in another way, they could never live because in tourist guides or hotels they simply do not appear. This way, we help create a community where football fans find not only face-value tickets, but also more economic alternatives to the traditional touristic football packages and cookie-cutter budget hotels.

Football is personal. Football is local.


After years of travelling and watching my favourite club in Manchester, having stayed in the home of a local family during a short break in England, I knew I would never travel and witness football the same way again. Not only did I have one of the best experiences of my life, I connected with local fans in a way that enriched my experience more than any hotel could ever do.

I set out to create a company that enables traveling fans to seamlessly experience a city through the eyes of a local, get access to face-value tickets and local knowledge. Since 2015 Homefans is traveling the world and building communities with local ‘football’ ambassadors for clubs around the world.

We’ve been flattered by the overwhelmingly positive response from fans since we began our journey, and plan to expand to the world’s top football clubs & cities by 2017. We look forward to welcoming you to the Homefans way to stay, all over the world.
