Football and Food

What the stadium lacks in booze it makes up for in food. The spectacle of colours and fans sweating with passion would not be complete without the array of children, women, and men scrambling around the stadium trying to sell sandwiches de chola, popcorn, salchipapas, coffee, and fizzy drinks to help supporters maintain their Duracell-bunny energy. If the match doesn’t satiate the hungry fans, on leaving the stadium they encounter the flames and cackles of anticucho vendors. Food and football here go hand in hand.
