Football Fever on Africa’s Great Lakes

Michael Nsubuga spent some time with the fishermen on the shores of Lake Victoria, one of Africa’s great ecotourism destinations, and found that football fever has found its way here. See all the images here.

It employs millions of people either directly or indirectly in fishing and fish-related activities. There are many soccer fans in this area, and locals can often be seen playing friendly or competitive matches on the beach. © Michael Nsubuga / Twenty Ten / Africa Media Online
