Gallery: Going to the Match Around the World

There’s a ritual that all football fans share around the world – the walk to the stadium. Salford-based artist LS Lowry captured this moment famously in his painting ‘Going to the Match’ (1953).


I’ve collected together some of my favourite pre-match shots from around the world, which I hope you enjoy.
