We visited the fanfest near Luzhniki stadium right before the start of the Russia - Saudi Arabia game. The atmosphere was unreal! People were dancing, singing and waiting together for the kick-off of the most important tournament in the world. We, as reporters, had the time of our life and sunk ourselves into the happiness of football fans from all around the world.

Football Means Hope by Football Tribe Iran

Russia 2018 World cup will start in 5 days and many star players will miss the tournament due to his managers’ decisions; players like Leroy Sane, Radja Naingolan, and Mauro Icardi.
Of course, I'll never be a professional player and never have a chance to participate in a world cup but I understand their feelings very well because I have a similar experience when I was a schoolboy.
I was 13 and one the best players in our school but skinny and fragile. However, I had missed the team of the school selection for two years, I was confident that I would be in the final selection that year. But the selection regulation was against me. We had to shoot the ball for a long distance and it was a huge obstacle for me. It’s obvious that I failed and had dropped again so I cried when I returned to the home.
My mom went to the school next day and spoke to our PE teacher and he accepted to give me a chance. But I attended just in one tra…

AFF Final 2010 Second Leg, When Football Gave Me Sadness by Football Tribe Indonesia

written by Isidorus Rio, Football Tribe Indonesia



I’m not that patriotic person but in terms of football, as an Indonesian, our love with national team is beyond anything. It’s beyond any nationalism campaign, beyond any thrash-talk about love story, like Bill Shankly said,  maybe, it’s beyond the matter of life and death.
Coming to the stadium, singing your beloved national anthem, screaming out loud for your local hero wearing red and white jersey with Garuda on their chest, that was massive feeling. One of the best feeling ever.
Then come that day, second leg in AFF Final 2010, against our long rival yet also our closest neighbour, Malaysia. We were 3-0 down after first leg, with sorrow defeat in Bukit Jalil. It was hard to swallow.
I came to Gelora Bung Karno, like the man repelled some spell to wishing some miracle like the Istanbul one, but it didn’t happen. Firman Utina missed a pen when it should make us ahead one goal. We did scored two goals but the visitor snatched one away…

Football Tribe Academy: the Simple Joys of Growth by Football Tribe Malaysia

I had almost forgotten what it felt like to observe slow, thorough and meaningful growth. The journalism industry is a fast-paced one. We are almost always rushing to break news, produce features, write columns and track the stats on these content. We’re almost always too eager to be the first - which is an absolutely fantastic thing, don’t get me wrong - but the by-product of that is we forget the simple joys of just observing and soaking in slow growth.
That’s what the entire Football Tribe academy experience has been like for me. I’m currently training the first batch of Football Tribe Academy students in Malaysia and it’s been nothing short of a refreshing experience.
The two boys we selected to be a part of this program came to us with zero knowledge on football journalism. They knew their football, had a decent understanding of how social media works and its significance in the modern contemporary world. But their …
