Riga United on The Shirt

I dag hyller vi Riga United  (link til laget) som var en av de første til å donere signert drakt til The Shirt og som har hjulpet godt i etterkant.

Men jeg har en bekjennelse.

Det kan hende at jeg spilte en kamp for dem under falskt Russisk navn i 2008. 

Det kan hende at jeg bare måtte dra  historien min (igjen) om mine egne sterke proffkarriere i England (dagen før) – og våknet opp til fin trøye, strømper, og lånte støvler på dagen etter.

Vi vant. Lett, men man skal følge spilleregler i Fotball, og man gjør som kjent mye rart når man backpacker i Baltiske strøk ( og det veldig gøy å spille denne sporten)

Nå setter jeg direkte over  til laget med en nydelig beskrivelse og et meget bra motto:

The clubs Latvian motto, “Vienoti Spelei” translates as “United for the game” and will be worn with pride on the clubs new strip, which was unveiled on April 20th, 2007. 

Our multi-national football team has joined the Latvian Amateur Football League (LAFL). The team could give Arsenal FC a good run for its money in terms of nationalities on its books with players from Latvia, Germany, England, Cameroon, Spain, Italy, Holland, Norway and Turkey to name just a few turning out for the sideBuilding on the success of Riga Out-Theres football team the decision was made recently to establish Riga United FC, a name, which perfectly sums up the whole essence and ethos of the new club. A cosmopolitan football team made up from signings around the world, Riga Out There FC unites tourists and locals, ex-pats and Latvians, youth and ‘experience’ (old gits) all wanting to play the beautiful game!
Riga United FC made its debut in the Latvian Amateur Football League in May 2007. In doing so Riga United made Latvian football history by becoming the first truly multi-national team to ever compete in the Latvian Amateur League.

The RUFC club crest has been chosen to reflect the image of Latvia’s beautiful capital, together with the idea of a united Riga. The clubs Latvian motto, “Vienoti Spelei” translates as “United for the game” and will be worn with pride on the clubs new strip, which was unveiled on April 20th, 2007.
