Football Fireworks in Fez

Loud explosions over the Medina of Fez last night caused concern for some and delight for others. No it was not an "incident",  but rather a fireworks display

Immediately theories abounded as to why fireworks. Was it to do with the Eid Holiday? The Hajj? Or some splashing out by the new Mayor?

The answer was a touch more mundane (unless you are a football fanatic). Maghreb Fez vs RCA Casablanca 1-1 with Fez eliminating RCA Casa on penalties (4-2)

Maghreb Association Sportive de Fez (Arabic: المغرب الفاسي‎) is a football club based in Fez. The club was founded in 1946.

Thanks to Annan from Thai Restaurant Moi Annan for the photographs.
