Return of football

The English Premier League, one of the world’s finest and most marketed sporting events, kicks off amid as-usual hype and expectations. The football event is said to attract a huge global audience and a new seasons kicks off tonight, with fans returning to support their respective teams.

The football leagues of various countries will start in the upcoming few weeks and the mother of them all – UEFA’s Champions League – would start in early September. And we will return to enjoying the spectacle of a sport that is no longer just a sport.

I’ll get back to supporting my favourite team – Spanish club Barcelona, once La Liga kicks off. The team has been enforced by some sparkling new players, with French forward Thierry Henry standing out.

Not for nothing is it called the Beautiful Game, eh?
