Saprissa and Costa Rican Soccer

In the time we have spent in San Jose, Costa Rica we have been sucked into the cultural passion that surrounds soccer in Costa Rica. We have visited Saprissa Stadium five times and watched the amazing spectacle that is Latin soccer. Mike has always been a sports fan and Madison played soccer for five years, but, the allure of sports has always evaded me…until now.

Our family has enjoyed visiting the 22,000 person stadium and watching world class and inexpensive soccer games. Saprissa, the team we have enjoyed cheering for, has been fun to watch. They are now playing in the Costa Rican Championship with their arch rivals, Alajuelense. We look forward to watching the two professional teams that play in La Ceiba, Honduras.

We put together this 3:45 second video to show you some of the fun we have seen.
