Georgia fans flood Athens celebrating the national championship (Video)


Georgia soccer won its first national championship in more than 40 years, so of course Bulldogs fans flooded the streets of Athens to celebrate.

If there is one thing that can be said about Georgia soccer fans, it is that they are always dedicated. Whether it’s good times or bad, Bulldogs fans are out there barking. So when it was the best of times Monday night after winning the show’s first national championship since 1980, the barking was a little louder.

You could certainly hear the fans who traveled to Indianapolis loud and clear as they and the team basked in the glory of winning a title (and eventually overcoming the Alabama hurdle). But back home to Athens, the fans kept freaking out.

It wasn’t long after the 60 minutes officially expired for Georgia soccer fans to be out on the streets of Athens absolutely ready to get the party started like it was 1980.

That’s one party you definitely want to be a part of, unless you’re a Crimson Tide fan.

But in all seriousness, this has to be an almost cathartic celebration for Bulldogs fans in Athens. 41 years is a long, long time to wait for another title, especially after coming up short so many times.

So really, the fans and the city deserve this party, they deserve to get raucous, and they deserve to live every second after that win. His team won in Indianapolis, by 15 points, no less.
