Overview

Welcome to Sevilla, the city that stands divided by the rivalry between Real Betis v Sevilla. This iconic derby, known as the Big Derby, takes place in the vibrant and passionate city of Sevilla in southern Spain. The city itself is a coveted destination, renowned for its exceptional gastronomy, picturesque streets that have inspired artists and musicians alike, and a local culture that sets it apart from the rest of Spain.

Andalusian traditions run deep in Sevilla, where dance and song are an integral part of everyday life. The people of Andalucía are known for their passion and zest for life, and this energy permeates every corner of the city. As you wander through the historic city center, you’ll discover the rich history embedded in its narrow streets, encounter charming bars brimming with stories, and experience unforgettable nights that seem to stretch on forever.

It is this unique blend of culture, history, and passion that makes Sevilla truly special. As the famous song by ‘Los del Río’ declares, “Sevilla has a special color,” and indeed it does. The city is home to two legendary football clubs: Real Betis Balompié and Sevilla Fútbol Club, founded in 1907 and 1905 respectively. The Estadio Benito Villamarín and the Estadio Sánchez-Pizjuán serve as the battlegrounds for these clubs, painted in vibrant green and red, representing the divided loyalty of the city.

Betis fans affectionately refer to Sevilla as the “Ciudad del Betis” (the city of Betis), emphasizing their unwavering allegiance to their beloved team. Meanwhile, Sevilla fans nickname their stadium the Bombonera, a nod to its atmosphere that explodes with fervor and passion.

The rivalry between Betis and Sevilla runs deep, transcending victories and trophies. In fact, it is considered one of the fiercest rivalries in Europe. The animosity between the two sets of fans is intense, and losing the derby is simply not an option for either side. When the derby day arrives, it’s a different game altogether, and winning becomes the sole objective. Both Betis and Sevilla boast some of the most passionate fans in the world, and the electric atmosphere of the stadium reaches its peak when the anthems are sung a cappella by the entire crowd. It’s an experience like no other, and you’ll witness firsthand the awe-inspiring spirit of these incredible people.

Welcome to Sevilla, where football passion intertwines with rich cultural heritage, where the streets come alive with vibrant colors and the air is filled with anticipation. Prepare yourself for an unforgettable journey into the heart of the Big Derby, where you’ll witness the raw emotions, fierce competition, and the unbreakable bond between a city and its football clubs.

What does a trip include?

A trip on the Homefans marketplace is a carefully hand-picked experience curated by Homefans and the local hosts in the destination to offer a unique sports experience through local eyes.

It usually includes the following:

  • Match Ticket
  • Local Host
  • Pre-Match Experience with local fans
  • Pre-arranged activities

In some cases more activities will be added or some will be omitted (and mentioned in the inclusions)

Where in the stadium will we be sitting?

If we know where you will be sitting, we always mention this is in the inclusions section.

Unfortunately, we are not always able to tell you that at the time of booking. However, our destination managers and local hosts work tirelessly to make sure you get the best seats.

We always aim for the long side of the home supporters section.

Can I upgrade my seat location?

We can always upgrade the seat location based on availability, at an extra cost. We do recommend that the group  stays together in the same area to get the most out of this experience, but if you would like to enquire about an upgrade, feel free to get in touch.

How many people will be on the tour?

The maximum number of people the host will allow is stated above.

However,  this number may not always be met and it may even be possible that your party is on the tour on your own.

Higher numbers make for a more sociable experience, lower numbers make for more personalised attention from your host. Look at it as a win/win!

How do you plan and execute your trips seamlessly?

The trips and activities on the Homefans marketplace are designed and executed by fully-vetted locals, and supervised and monitored by Homefans.

All bookings made on Homefans are backed by our Buyer Guarantee so you have a peace on mind when booking.

With more than 10,000+ customers , Homefans is one of the biggest specialised sports marketplaces in the world.

Can children / young adults join the tour?

Homefans is for everyone!

If we can accept children, there will be an option to do so in the booking flow. However, for some trips, our local hosts take the decision to open this up to adults only, based on the content of the tour. If you are looking to travel with under 18’s, please feel free to contact us and we can discuss your options.

Will I have to share a room?

In order to keep competitive prices,  the trips on the Homefans marketplace always offer prices based on 2 people sharing.

If you wish to stay on your own in a single room, you may pay a supplement for a guaranteed single room. This can be found on the extras section at checkout and you can add it to the booking. You can also get in touch with us to arrange this.

Can I extend my stay / upgrade my hotel?

Yes, you can extend your stay by clicking on the EXTRAS section at checkout, choosing the number of extra nights you wish to extend your stay.

For a hotel upgrade, please get in touch with Homefans and we will assist you in this matter.

Can I cancel my trip if I cannot travel?

If you foresee that you cannot longer attend this trip, we appreciate if you let us know with time in advance.

According to our Terms & Conditions , if you tell us 45 days before the trip starts, we can keep your deposit and transfer it to another future trip or use it as credit.  The deposit payment is non-refundable and non-transferrable.

Why are there local hosts on the trips?

Homefans was created to address a pain point we experienced quite often. You travel abroad to watch a sporting event, yet once you arrive, you still feel like an outsider, with a lack of knowledge around the destination and the event.

The local hosts on the Homefans marketplace address this issue by becoming the local link to your trip. They enhance the experience completely, and create that necessary human connection – and will surely become friends in the future!

The best derby in all Spain

I have previously been with Homefans at the Derby Madrileño, Barcelona, Valencia and the atmosphere in Sevilla was something unreal! The passion of how both fanbases address this game is nowhere to be seen. Homefans arranged a series of amazing activities that mixed the game, the pre-match and the city sightseeing so it was the complete pack. Great local host Ignasi and amazing group. One you shouldn't miss with Homefans!
