Homefans: An Authentic Football Experience During Match Days
HomeFans offers host accommodation for football fans around the world. Have a spare room? Looking to earn an extra income? Join HomeFans today and become a host fan!Homefans: An Authentic Football Experience During Match DaysMy name is Luke Verbeek, Founder of HomeFans. I am a passionate football fan – I have travelled a lot to England to watch football matches and be part of the unique atmosphere.
I’ve been interested in English football since a very young age and in the summer of 2014 I came up with the idea to change the matchday experience for foreign football fans like me.
Six months later I now have launched a system for football fans who want a better and authentic football experience during match days.
Homefans helps visiting fans and local fans to make contact and arrange homestay accommodation when they travel.
By encouraging visiting fans to stay with the locals from their favourite club, we aim to help local fans earn an income from sharing their lives with visiting fans from their local club.
All too often, foreign football fans arrive, look around and take photos, but the local people who live there remain little more than ‘extras’ – part of the background of the local football club. By contrast, visiting fans get a deeper experience of the places they visit than just seeing the club, bars and sights.
Our vision at Homefans is to provide football fans from around the world the opportunity to be more than just another spectator by providing a homestay with a true local fan from their favourite club.
Travelling fans will be able to stay with local fans, to get reasonably priced accommodation nearer the stadium and match day experience through the eyes of local fans. Instead of staying in a hotel, fans will spend their time with local fans to experience a better match day experience.
Local supporters can give visiting fans an unforgettable and authentic football experience
As the Homefans idea spreads, you’ll help local people earn themselves an extra income, and help visiting fans get more deeply involved when they visit your local area.
