#vivilasamp: The man who hitchhiked from Genoa to Novi Sad

Tommaso Giani, a thirty-two-year-old seminarian from Pontedera, is a Blucerchiati man through and through. And he was determined to cheer on Sampdoria in their Europa League third qualifying round second-leg match against Vojvodina, so much so that he hitchhiked the full 1100 kilometres to Novi Sad.

In total, Tommaso received a whopping 23 free lifts along the way. His prize? A free ticket to watch the match at Karađorđe Stadium and a seat on the team’s flight home. Because sometimes, you have to go the extra mile to support the Blucerchiati.

It’s all part of Samp’s brand-new #vivilasamp series on the club’s official YouTube channel. We’ll be bringing you regular features on some of the great lengths our fantastic fans go to to support the club. And who knows? Perhaps you’ll be next!
