Marius Helgå is from Oslo, Norway and is a supporter of
Gimnàstic de Tarragona, Spain.
Marius is a union representative and plays the bass trombone in his spare time. In 2006, he was travelling through Spain with a band. They visit the city of Tarragona, where he fell in love with the city and decided to start following their Football club. He runs the Twitter handle @NasticNoruega. The team currently plays in the third division of Spain. He is hoping they come back to the Segunda Division, where he can watch the games on YouTube.
His club legend is the Swedish player, Tobias Grahn, and a player he feels deserved a bit more praise from his time at the club is Manolo Reina, who now plays for Mallorca.
In Norway, he follows Tromsø IL. In 2015, he was holding a giant flag in some crazy weather, the camera picked up his struggle. The clip went viral and even today Marius gets recognised at games across Norway!
Tromsø is the northernmost professional club in the world. Marius told me
about a fascinating game from the 1997 Cup Winners Cup where Tromsø played Chelsea on a pitch that was completely covered in snow.
