Football is nothing without the fans. It’s as simple as that.
Supporters remain the lifeblood of the game, even in times such as these where finances often dictate the difference between on-pitch success and failure.
While there will forever be something special about watching your hometown team secure three points on their own patch of turf, trips on the road to new grounds, cities and nations are a different kettle of fish.
And that is why we’ve partnered with Homefans to give our readers, viewers and social media followers an opportunity to get out there and experience some of the game’s biggest derby days for themselves during the 2019/20 season.
But you won’t have to attend as an outsider. Oh, no. The trips up for grabs mean that our winners will be living like locals and soaking up the atmosphere as certified members of the home crowd.
First up is Serie A’s ‘Derby del Sole’ and you can get the full details of how you – and a friend – could soon be filing into the Stadio Olimpico below.
How to enter
To be in with a chance of winning two tickets and a trip to Rome for Roma vs Napoli on November 2nd 2019, all you need to do is answer one of our five Roma vs Napoli themed questions on Instagram correctly and follow Homefans’ official Instagram account.
