Impressive moments of Cantona
So he founded the Looking FC travel brand to organize “pilgrimage” trips to the world’s biggest clubs and introduce fans to the culture surrounding the team.
Cantona said: “I want to believe that some people still believe in the passion and soul of the game. And some are still interested in the history and community surrounding these iconic clubs – con people, cities and stadiums.”
“But today you see some fans of a club who don’t even know its true history – why the club was founded and by whom. I think that’s very important. important and that’s why we make these trips.”
Looking FC will take fans on four-day trips to football hubs such as Manchester, Liverpool, Milan, Madrid and Buenos Aires.
The experience will include tickets to a match, along with activities to immerse fans in the vast football culture surrounding the city.
Fans will learn about local football history during the tours.
