is my religion
Football is a new global religion. This new religion is not associated with any particular society, community or ethnicity. It unites hundreds of millions of people around the world and establishes the connection of an individual to the rest of the mankind.
The symbol of our church is a Footballer_Celebrating_a_Goal. His face is covered by a jersey because it is irrelevant who he is. He is the Personification of a Football God, or the Miracle of a Goal.
HOW CAN YOU HELP OUR CHURCH??
We are building this church for YOU. It is not important what your fan seniority or rooting track record is, whether you go to the stadium or watch the game on TV, go to road games or stay home. Never mind your sex, weight, eye shape or skin color. It doesn't matter if you're Muslim, Christian or atheist. Also, it is of no consequences if you pull for a big club or a small local team.
If you cheer, cry, hug a stranger or hammer the bar counter in rage when a goal is scored – you are our Football Brother or Sister.

THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING
AHEAD - BIG AND EXCITING STORY
Football, just like any other conventional religion, is based on belief in a miracle. In football such miracle is a scored goal. It is eagerly awaited every single second of every game, regardless whether your team is winning or losing. There is a small miracle in every goal… or big miracle… or complete miracle. Why open goals from one meter away are missed and, at the same time, overhead kick goals from 30 meters away are scored? This seems very mystical indeed!
It means there is Something out there that decides whether there will be a goal scored or not. The fans have long been calling this Something “The Football God”.
Every goal is the epiphany of this God to people and it arouses their religious zeal.
