The Celts. Supporting the football team of the next village

Every weekend the Celts football fans escape their washed-up small town blues by cheering for a team from a nearby village.

Although their hometown boasts a successful team that competes in Croatia's national league, these passionate football fans give their hearts and their support to a village team that plays in regional leagues.

Over the course of one football season we follow the fortunes of the Celts supporters and their chosen team, immersing ourselves in the green and white rhapsody of jerseys, scarves and other fan paraphernalia, along with the mythology and folklore of The Celts.
