Superstitions

Athletes don't rely solely on logic and data. Superstitions play a big role too. If the team is winning, I will keep wearing my lucky underwear. But what happens if we lose? Today we look at the quirky world of superstitions in football.

Episode Notes

With great responsibility comes...doubt. When the happiness of thousands of fans depends on what you and your teammates do on the pitch, it is no wonder that footballers quickly abandon trusty old devices, such as logic, and embrace a weird world of mumbo jumbo.

Superstition plays a big part in the lives of many footballers. Some have lucky pairs of underwear that they swear by. Why would you change them if the team keeps on winning and more importantly, what would happen if you did?
