Hello to all of you Sevillistas out there around the world, my name is Ruben and I am a Sevillista living in Austin, TX. I actually joined this weekend as well; I had been meaning to do this for a while now and hearing @ChrisLail call a homie out on the We Are Sevilla podcast was the push I needed to finally do it It truly is great to finally be participating in the Monchi’s Men forum!
As for my connection to Sevilla Futbol Club…I studied abroad in Sevilla in the spring of 2007. My host family lived in Nervion, less than 10 mins walk from the stadium, so naturally there was only team from Sevilla I could chose to throw my support behind from that point on. Not to mention, it was the season of the second UEFA Cup win and the 4th Copa del Rey win, so lets just say I was baptized a Sevillista by glory and titles (and of course the amazing city and fans)! Since that semester abroad, there is only one team that truly matters, SEVILLA FUTBOL CLUB…HASTA LA MUERTE!
That being said, I am really looking forward to interacting with all of you guys in this forum and I am excited to continue building more connections with Sevilla fans in the States and around the world!
