The idea was literally seven years in the making, but it was certainly worth it…

in 2006 Nacional (Uruguay) supporters decided to produce and unfurl what is probably the biggest tifo ever at a football match. During their home game against Toluca (Mexico) in the Copa Libertadores a week ago, they finally pulled it off….

The gigantic tifo is 600m in length and 54m in height, and it took more than 18 months to print.

BTW: Nacional defeated Toluca 4-0.

More correctly, ¡Uau!

In the National stadium, to boot ( estadio Centenario, site of the first World Cup final.) That's Peñarol's home ground.

I watched part of that game. I had no idea they did the Tifo.

( tifo doesn't work well in Spanish. It means tiphus some places. Tifo asiatico is cholera, and tifo oriental is boubonic plague)
