Manchester United vs Hull City

Today, I went to a Barclays Premier League game between Hull City and Manchester United. United is my favorite club in the Premier League, so I chose to travel to Hull in northeast England because Monday is a bank holiday in the UK so there is no work.

KC Stadium, home of Hull City FC Tigers

 

It was the last day of the season today and Hull City were on the edge of relegation to the Championship (lower division). They needed a win, so there was extra excitement in the air this weekend. I made the mistake of wearing some United gear while walking around town Saturday and got more than a few dirty looks. My tickets for the game were in the Hull supporters section, so I didn't wear any red to the game just to be safe.

The atmosphere inside the stadium was electric. The home fans tried their very best to will their team to a win (it was so loud I could barely hear myself think at some points through the match). The Tigers played well, but the match ended a 0-0 draw and Hull City were relegated. However, the response from the fans was tremendous. They gave great support to the team and continued cheering until every last player had left the pitch.

 

All in all, it was a dream day. I experienced my first Premier League match and I got to see my favorite team and players. I stayed a bit late and watched the players come out of the locker room and onto the bus. Below are some great pictures of that, as well as some before and during the match.

The green line in the lower left is a marking for rugby, as this stadium is used for multiple sports.
