Day of Peruvian culture at the FIFA Fan Fest!Thursday, 21 June 2018, 11:43
So, on July 21st, before the match "Portugal-Morocco", all the guests who had gathered by that time in the venue danced salsa. Peruvian fans in general are one of the most colorful. Although they did not come in an unusual carnival costume, they enjoyed themselves as if they had one on them!
Nonetheless Peruvians do not have much to dance, they need to sing! So, after the match, which ended in favor of the Portuguese football team, the Peruvians present went onto the Fan Fest stage, and performed their national dances, but for the second it took a couple of dancers. The colorful dancing received a big response from the audience - everyone applauded.
On the eve of the game between the national teams of France and Peru, which will be held today at the stadium "Ekaterinburg Arena", supporters of both sides, Peru and France, for friendly embraces, were invited on stage, Carlos Peruvian, and David French. Both took a responsible approach to the ladies assigned to them, and gladly demonstrated to everyone that FIFA Fan Fest unites football fans from all over the world. Later, the native-born Peruvian David, said that he had not come alone to support the national team, but with his wife Aaali too, who together will be encouraging their football team today! The latter message of his was touching and pleasant for all those present so that nobody was against letting themselves diving through the Peruvian salsa again.
The live broadcast of the match "Uruguay-Saudi Arabia" exactly began on time at 20:00, after which a truly tropical deluge began. Since the Fan Fest has opened, the weather of the Urals did not scare the Peruvian fans (perhaps because in Peru winter and the average daily temperature barely exceed 18° C), therefore, no one rushed for a shelter.
The denouement of the concert program of the day was a truly brilliant performance of Peruvian singer Riri, who also arrived in Ekaterinburg to support his team and was among the guests of Fan Fest venue. Riri performed a national song supporting his football team, which brought together all without exception. The Peruvians continued to sing along to the very beginning of the third and final game of the day - the match "Iran-Spain".
Today the Fan Fest will be a very busy day. The program starts at 15:00 with national songs of France and Peru, dancing orchestra "UralBand", and the usual interactive mass charging from the visitors aiming at scoring a goal on screen with their noises. By 18:30 the festival will be attended by the football club "Ural FC" with the purpose of supporting the local and foreign guests at the Fan Fest. Finally, before the third match, an energetic dance floor cover-band "Neft" will perform. Today’s games are "Denmark-Australia", "France-Peru", "Argentina-Croatia".
