Today it’s been three years since Homefans came to mind. What started as a small trip to tick off some of the biggest derbies with friends, has grown larger than we ever could have imagined of and has now become a global community of friends and football fans who travel all around the world to experience football at its best and off the beaten path.
It’s incredible to see how our friends and travelers fly in from all corners of the globe to experience the world of football with us. Wherever we decide to put up a Homefans trip, our amazing community shows up and make each destination unique in its own way together with the locals who create amazing itineraries.
Old Firm – 2017 Let’s start at the beginning. Back in 2016/2017, we set out with a trip to the Old Firm for a group of Dutch travelers and then continued for another trip to the Stockholm derby. Since then we’ve been launching more destinations and adding more and more friends into our network for every season.
Last season we hosted football trips to the most incredible football derbies. We design our trips for people who are tired of being a tourist, traveling alone, avoid the touristic routes and want to experience the best football cultures possible together with other like-minded fans and locals. Last year these travelers flew to all parts of the world to experience football, from Brazil to Serbia to the Netherlands and all of Europe and the USA.
From the early days, our mission has been very simple and still remains the same. Invite friends, new and old, for a football trip followed by great football experiences and have a good time together abroad. We provide all the ingredients for the trips but it’s really the people, our travelers, who create the magic. No matter if it’s a beer in a pub in the morning or at a football match, it’s who’s there who makes it unique and a weekend or time to remember.
Over the years we have become more and more ambitious in how we create this platform for our football trips, to meet new people and to be able to experience football anywhere around the world. We now build trips for the most intense football derbies around the world. We work hard every day to make sure, we can provide the best trips possible and of course safety in all the destinations, we travel to.
All combined these activities create boutique football trips like no other. We want to do it all and we do it with the sole purpose of having as much fun as humanly possible on our trips around the world. These are no random match breaks you can find anywhere else.
You get back home after a weekend, with sore legs and possibly a bit tired, but for sure with a smile, amazing memories and new friends from all over the world. Friends you have shared some extraordinary moments with, experienced a great football culture with and next time you go traveling you can be sure there’s always someone around to grab a drink with. Homefans is only the start, but, you, the travelers are the reason every trip is an amazing memory.
