San Francisco draws in people from all around the world, for all sorts of reasons. Leo arrived in SF from Brazil with plans to surf and work in a hostel for the summer. After seeing a Giants game with local fans for the first time, he's unlocked a new way to experience this city during his stay.
Read his full story here:
Attending a sporting event while on holiday is a fun, easy way to discover the hidden heartbeat of any city. But for those who are studying or working away from the comforts of their home town, going to a game can take on an even stronger importance.
That's because despite the fact that sporting teams are primarily a business these days, they are also, at their heart of it, communities. No group of people are more welcoming than fans who just found out your allegiances are up for grabs!
San Francisco has a rich history of innovation and inclusivity, and the beloved San Francisco Giants are a perfect example of this.
The Giants partnership with SportsHosts has allowed our friend Leo to attend a number of games with different hosts during his stay here in San Francisco.
"I feel so lucky to have been able to attend three Giants games with SportsHosts. Different hosts provided me with totally different experiences and I'm definitely a Giants fans now!".
Located downtown, the atmosphere is absolutely buzzing come game day! There are loads of restaurants, and bars just outside the park for a bite or drink, before or after the game.
Giants Fans are so proud of their team and their city, that they genuinely want to share them with the world. Leo knows better than anyone.
"Coming back a second time, I definitely had a better understanding of the game and the team. It was one of the best things I've done in my time here!".
Baseball season starts in early April and runs until early October, which lets you enjoy the games in San Francisco's mild weather. Plus, if the team makes it into the World Series, you have the opportunity to enjoy a few more thrilling days.
