Icelandic professional football (soccer) player Eidur Smári Gudjohnsen bought 200 tickets for Iceland’s game against Spain on September 8, which went on sale yesterday, and donated them to a new football support club for Iceland.
“This shows where Eidur Smári’s heart is,” Styrmir Gíslason, one of the club’s members, told Fréttabladid. Gudjohnsen called Gíslason yesterday and told him that he personally wanted to donate 200 tickets to the club.
“Eidur Smári said he had noticed us [in the game against Canada] and heard from the other players on the team that they were very satisfied with our support. He wanted to do a good deed and simply gave us these tickets,” Gíslason said.
“Eidur Smári also said that it would be great that the holders of the free tickets would scream like crazy at the game and also show up for the game against Northern Ireland,” Gíslason added.
