The Incredible Journey from Recovery to Fulfilling Football Dreams

From Paralysis to Passion

What a ride it’s been. Imagine going through two strokes, facing paralysis twice in your life, and then turning it all around to help football enthusiasts live their ultimate dreams. It’s something I could hardly have dreamed of myself. But here I am, sharing this journey with you.

Back in 2014, I faced a major challenge – a life-altering brain surgery. The outcome left me paralysed for the second time (the first was back in 1999). Hearing that I was paralysed again was a massive blow, especially after being told the operation went well. How did this happen again? Yet, I chose to stay positive and tackle the rehabilitation head-on.

The Road to Recovery

Rehab was tough, I won’t lie. From trying to move my fingers to standing straight and taking steps forward, every task was a mountain to climb. Speaking and sharing my thoughts took immense effort. But, this journey taught me never to take the simple things in life for granted. With faith and determination, I started walking again in just 5 weeks and got back to my normal life by the fifth month.

A Dream Come True at Anfield

Being a die-hard Liverpool fan, one of my biggest dreams was to watch them play live at Anfield. In December 2016, that dream came true. Standing in the Kop, soaking in the electric atmosphere, was nothing short of magical – a truly unforgettable experience. That match, that atmosphere, sparked an idea in my wife, which eventually led to the creation of Matchday Affairs.

The Birth of Matchday Affairs

Starting Matchday Affairs wasn’t in my original plans, but I couldn’t be more thankful for where we are today. This platform isn’t just about getting fans EPL tickets in Singapore, premier league tickets, or football travel packages; it’s about turning their football dreams into reality and sharing in their joy and satisfaction.

Celebrating Our Success

And here’s a bit of happy news: Matchday Affairs turns four tomorrow! Despite the challenges brought on by the Covid pandemic and the halt in global travel, we’ve managed to keep going. It’s a small victory, but it’s ours, and we’re proud of it.

Looking to the Future

If you’re on the lookout for a matchday experience in the UK, including securing those coveted EPL tickets in Singapore or diving into the world of football with our travel packages, our team at Matchday Affairs is eager to assist. Here’s to many more years of making football dreams come true.

Cheers to that!
