As easy as it seems. The Big Derby is located in Sevilla, South Spain. A city split completely into two parts. Green and Red. Betis and Sevilla.
Sevilla is one of the most desired destinations in Europe, the gastronomy is excellent, and the beauty of its streets has inspired many songs and artists. The local traditions are different from the rest of Spain.
They are Andalusian, they dance, and they sing as a way of life. This is how people from Andalucía are. Passionate about what they do. You can understand their culture by just walking around the city centre, a huge history behind those narrow and tiny streets, little bars plenty of stories and long nights.
This is what makes Sevilla so special. There is a song from ‘Los del Río’ that declares “Sevilla has a special colour”. And it’s true. Real Betis Balompié and Sevilla Fútbol Club. Founded in 1907 and 1905 respectively. The Estadio Benito Villamarín and the Estadio Sánchez-Pizjuán. Green and Red. This is the capital of Andalucía. Welcome to Sevilla.
Betis fans call the city as ‘Ciudad del Betis’ (the city of Betis) because they don’t want to give up with the town. And Sevilla fans call their stadium as the Bombonera. You can guess why.
Despite the victories and trophies won by Sevilla during last years, between these two teams the rivalry is one of the highest in Europe. They hate each other and they don’t want to lose the derby because of the day after at work. A derby is a derby, it’s a different game and there are no good forms for that, you have to win. Betis and Sevilla are two of the most passionate fans in the world, especially when the anthems are sung ‘a cappella’ for the whole stadium. It’s a unique experience to live, then you will realize how awesome are these people.

Immerse yourself in the magical city of Sevilla and its culture!
After arrival and check-in, your local host will show you around and take you to Giralda, Alcázar and Torre Del Oro, historical and beautiful places in the city. Then, we will cross the Guadalquivir river and head to Calle Betis and Triana neighbourhood, where we can visit the market and sit down somewhere around to eat and drink. History lessons and storytelling will unveil some of the local secrets and get you familiar with the football culture.
Speaking of football, after sightseeing and meeting your fellow travelers a stadium tour at Estadio Sánchez-Pizjuán, home of Sevilla FC will tease your imagination. The exclusive tour will allow us to visit the press conference room, the guests' dressing room, sidelines, players' benches, President Box, Legends' Room and the media stand.
Prepare your mind, body, and soul for an intensity you have never experienced!
Your local host will lead you on the journey through the city's crackling match day atmosphere and noisy streets. We will be heading for a pre-match pub route, going from a bar to another, tasting local beers, food and gathering with Sevilla FC supporters. It is definitely the best way to soak up the atmosphere!
You'll see streets filled with supporters chanting their songs, all the way until you reach the stadium, which is always heavily divided between the two ultra groups.
Here you'll witness the famous El Gran Derbi and find out why it's definitely worthy of the name. After an insane 90 minutes, you'll meet for some farewell drinks before returning home the next day.
Your weekend at the El Gran Derbi is over, but the adventure has only just begun. Be sure to exchange contacts with your new friends and take some time to reflect on what you've experienced. Your next Homefans adventure might not be far away!
