For anyone who is absolutely sports mad, there are sites out there which encourage like- minded people to come together and eat, drink and breathe sports. Indeed, some of the events on these websites are taking place all round the world. Some people will even go on a sports vacation because they just love sports even when they have down time. Bucket lists on the sites allow people to make up a kind of wish forum so that they can be reminded of where they want to go when time and money allows.
On these websites are the top one hundred and fifty sporting events which people have all said that they find the most interesting. What they then do is to fill out their ‘passport’ of where they have actually been to and the inventory of where the next places to visit are.
Indeed, these sports fans get points for every venue that they have been and this adds up to different badges being displayed on the site. Those who have done a lot and have visited many places and sports activities have gained the maximum score of seven hundred points. Once there, they are inducted into the sports Hall of Fame!
But there is more to these sites than just gaining points of course. Anyone who wants to visit these kinds of events can actually book the travel arrangements through the site itself. They not only get great discounts, they also get to know others who use the same sites as well and this sets up a network of friends who all have the same things in common, that is, sport!
There are all kinds of filters and search options on the site which allows for people to work out which avenue they would like to follow. It may be that they want to visit all the football games in the country, or they may simply want to go to all the football games in their own particular state, either way, this is all catered for in one or two clicks.
Anyone who is on the site is also allowed to vote for the ultimate sporting events every year. This is a little more involved than it may look but it basically gives the user the choice of two events which they have attended or which ones they would like to attend.
On top of this the user can also give a full description of an event which has been attended and gives the user a chance to talk enthusiastically about something that they absolutely and thoroughly enjoyed.
Finally, although this is obviously a site for those who are fanatical about sports, primarily it is a social site which allows people with the same mindset to get together and socialize. Indeed, because of the travel aspect of parts of the site, it is very likely that people will actually meet and stay friends for years to come. What most people fail to see, when they meet quite by chance, is that they have a lot more in common than they initially thought. However, by participating in this, they already know that they have at least one thing in common.
