Kate Web, massive Manchester City fan and owner of the event planning business Rodeo Queen will watch the FA Cup final between Manchester City and Watford in style! Kate won our FA Cup win a reserved table raffle and we can’t wait to see how she helps us decorate her winning table. The Toffee Club blog caught up with Kate to ask her how Man City became her team.
What led you to follow Manchester City?
The team came to Portland in 2010 to play during their international tour. I had a buddy who had been following them for a while so he was eager to see them. We ran into the team walking into the Nines in downtown Portland, which was a bit magical. After that, I we started paying closer attention to the club, waking up to watch early matches on weird channels. When they won in 2012 in such a miraculous way, I was watching live and it took my breath away and I've been madly in love ever since.
Wow! She was at the final where Aguero scored! Kate’s favorite overall player is Yaya Toure while she says Emerson and Kompany are her current favorites. She wasn’t too thrilled with Pep Guardiola at first, “We heard he wasn’t all that nice and I hoped we would not become sellouts. I fell very differently now.”
When asked about the FA Cup Final, she gives resect to Watford, “I hope we will win, but all teams are scary when there are stakes involved. You never know when it's going to be someone's moment to breakout- passion and hustle and heart can add up to a lot!”
She and her husband Brendan who is also a huge Man City fan have seen the team live four times and say it just keeps getting better and better!
If you’re at the FA Cup final on Saturday, May 18, stop by at what we are sure will be a gorgeous table and say hi to Kate and Brendan!
