It's usually a little intimidating cheering for a team at the opposing team's home stadium. Usually where soccer is concerned, there's at least a healthy contingent for both teams. On Monday, that wasn't the case for Udinese of Serie A.
A Udinese fan has become the center of Italian media attention as the only away supporter to witness his team's 2-0 victory at Sampdoria in Serie A on Monday.
Arrigo Brovedani says he didn't expect to find many other fans in the 4,134-seater away sector on a cold December night, but was stunned to discover he was completely alone.
"The away sector" sounds pretty hardcore, but not as hardcore as being the only person on one side of the stadium and the only one cheering for the opposing team. Udinese dedicated their win to this guy and he was invited to go out drinking with the team afterward.
The AP was unable to confirm reports that Brovedani is also the one Toronto Raptors fan we keep hearing about.
