Colombians gather in Auckland as their team hopes to knock Brazil out of the World Cup

United by the love of ‘futbol’ and their home country, the Colombian community in NZ will gather together to watch the quarter finals this Saturday at 8am in The Paddington, Parnell. They will proudly wear their yellow shirts and chant their songs to encourage the team from the other side of the world.

Marleny Delgado, President of the Colombian Association in NZ couldn’t be happier “Our team has done an amazing job, it’s been 16 years since we last attended a World Cup; our come back has been ‘in style’ and we are poised to upset the hosts Brazil on Saturday morning NZ time”, Marleny said they are expecting around 200 Colombians of all ages to support their team. A win for Colombia will extend the celebrations until 12th of July, when the Colombian community will be having their annual National Party with up to 800 South Americans dancing latin music and eating traditional food.
