Football teams know the advantages of playing at home. Not only are the players familiar with the pitch, but the crowd will be cheering them on. The positive atmosphere has an impact on the game.

Even when we're a long way from the action, encouraging, long-distance thoughts can make a difference. You're the recipient of distant, yet tangible support today.
