For the whole wide world, World Cup season is undeniably one of the most exciting periods of our lives, especially for us Malaysian football fans. After all, it’s not just any sporting event – it’s a celebration that unites the world!

If you hung around your friends and family long enough, you probably picked up some little odd habits that football fans seem to have. Think you can remember some of the whimsical mannerisms we have? Read on to jog your memory!


1. Football-related gifts are a surefire win!

We probably have one too many team jerseys, keychains, or socks that are gifted from family and friends, but we still absolutely adore them. Gift us a framed autographed jersey of our favourite player for a lifetime of friendship!


2. Getting emotionally devastated when our team loses badly

Mood swings may not be in our nature, but it’s a wholly different ball game (pun intended 😉) when it comes to football. If our team lost last night’s match, konfem you’ll see us being unusually sulky, so don’t take it too personal ya?


3. Watching highlights instead of live matches

We LOVE our life in Malaysia, but the thought of frequently watching live matches at midnight or 3AM is simply not feasible eh! Thus, a lot of us opt to watch the highlights instead, and only stay up late for the big showdown matchesdon’t work hard, work smart!


4. “Official” jerseys from pasar malam FTW!

As much as we love our team, their official merchandise can be SO expensive! So, most of us opt for jerseys bought from “100% official” pasar malam stalls lorh, even though the prints eventually peel off. One day lah, we’ll buy the official team jersey!


5. “Boss ah, I don’t feel so good…”

It’s a rite of passage for Malaysian football fans to take MC because they stayed up late for last night’s match, at least once in their lives! But don’t feel too bad about it (and don’t do it frequently!) because your boss is quite likely doing the same thing anyway. 👀


6. If got football freebies, we’ll be there!

Regardless if we need to play fantasy football, attend viewing parties that are hours away, or join cringe social media contests, we gila-gila will do whatever it takes to get free football merchandise or win awesome prizes – even more so if they’re super high value!


All part of the football craze~
