This ‘ere is Mr and Mrs Han, a newlywed couple from Singapore, and this is the story of how Liverpool FC bought two lonely soles together and into blissful matrimony with one another on the other side of the planet:
“We are Liverpool fans living in singapore some 6823.5 miles from the city of Liverpool. In late 2001, thought our support for our beloved team, we met each other at the Official Liverpool FC Fanclub Singapore Branch. What follow was a courtship unlike other couples. Our dates were watching Liverpool together every weekend. Everywhere we go, we were dressed up in idential LFC tops.
“When we finally decide to take the path to marriage, our wedding had to be Liverpool-inspire theme. Our friends would come in their soccer jerseys. This clip shows our first march in which was very unique as we walk in with the theme song – “You’ll Never Walk Alone”. A song that symoblises our baby steps in courtship to being husband and wife.
“We hope by sharing this video here, 1) Shows that it possible to meet your other half at a soccer game screening. 2) It makes your dates more fun as you talk about Liverpool and buy Liverpool! 3) We hope that by sharting this video, John W. Henry and others in Liverpool FC would feel the love of the club from the fans in Singapore and Asia as a whole.
“Hope whoever see this video, please share with your fellow Liverpool fans. YNWA”
Lovely stuff. The photography was particularly tasteful…
