Foreign Sporting Events for Partying Travellers

When visiting a foreign country one of the best ways to have a good time while experiencing the local culture and drinking the local beer is to attend a sporting event.  I try to make to as many sporting events as possible as long as it is affordable and licensed to serve alcohol.  While tickets to professional sporting events here at home in Canada can run upwards of $100 there are many great and highly affordable options to be found in lesser developed countries. Even if the sporting events you attend while travelling busts the budget a bit they can make for some of the best and most memorable experiences.
