This is Costa Rica's major event, the Soccer championship which is held every year between the local soccer football teams. Soccer football is the principal sport of the country, almost every village no matter it's size has a soccer field, often in front of the church. Newspaper sport sections always carry the latest soccer results.

As you spend more time in Costa Rica and get to know the locals, you will also found out that there are two mayor national soccer teams in the country:  “saprissa” and “la liga” if you ask any Costa Rican they either are fan of one of them, and when these team play each other, there is a national party among all soccer fans, and this match is called “el clasico” (the classic).

If you are a fun of the sport, no trip is complete to Costa Rica unless you attend a match and cheer on your favorite team.
