Fans of Sporting C.P. believe that Fenway Park is a fitting place for their beloved team to play since their devotion is comparable to that of Red Sox Nation.

NESN’s Jade McCarthy caught up with Sporting’s honorary captain, Carlos Andrade, a Portugal-native who is one of the largest Dunkin’ Donuts franchise owners in New England. When asked to compare the Sporting’s fan base to Red Sox fans, Andrade said they were very similar.

“It’s exactly like you have here,” Andrade said. “Our football team is as big as the Red Sox here. Especially Sporting, they are always one of the top teams in the country.”
