Swedish FC United fan Linus Lind has embarked upon a charity bike ride from Uppsala, Sweden to Manchester, UK, in order to raise money for "Doctors without borders (MSF)", a humanitarian-aid NGO with over 20,000 medical (and other) volunteers that work in war-torn regions and developing countries facing endemic diseases. He is pedalling a 2,500km pilgrimage from Upsalla all the way to FC United’s new home at Broadhurst Park, due to arrive around the end of August.
Linus lives in Uppsala, Sweden and attended his first FC United-match in 2009. He then called his father back home to say that "This is what real English football culture sounds like". Ever since then he has followed FC United and he is trying his best to spread the word of the ‘FC United way’ both in Sweden and internationally.
The club wishes Linus all the best with his trip and looks forward to welcoming him when he arrives at Broadhurst Park next month.
