Eurocup 2016: Hungary vs. Portugal
During my two-month adventure throughout Europe, I had several opportunities to watch the 2016 EuroCup soccer games with the local fans in multiple countries. The game I watched in Budapest with the local Hungarian fans was a particularly special experience. The game was between Hungary and Portugal and would determine who would win in the group stages. By tying the game 3-3, Hungary won their group and advanced to the elimination rounds for the first time in over 40 years. The city erupted with joy and people took to the streets to celebrate. After dancing, chanting, and singing for several hours, the street party became a celebration march that lead all the way to the Parliament building.
