Barclays, the sponsors of the Premier League, have released another video in their Thank You series to thank soccer fans for following the world’s most popular sports league.

This new one focuses on fans from North America, Asia and Africa, which captures what the experience is like for many as they watch their favorite club or league each week.

The part where it shows soccer fans in the US telling the bartender what channel the game on is something that many people can relate to.

The ad reads:

“Long distance relationships can be the hardest.

“To the millions of fans around the world who make the Barclays Premier League what it is, we say thank you.”

    Beautiful. I can’t speak for the depictions of Africa and Asia, but I could imagine the scenarios are just as accurate as what is depicted for the US.
