Model Answer:
2-3 years back I attended a sports event which was open to the public and I would like to talk about it. It was probably the month of January and I was a student of the university at that time. I heard that the Argentina Football team would come to our country and would play a football match against our football team. I was a fan of this football team (...mention any other team name which you like...) and wanted to enjoy the football match. This was one of the most enjoyable football tournament I have seen live. Though I liked the Argentine team, I supported our team from the very beginning.

I had to collect the ticket 30 days prior to the game day and on the day I went to the national stadium with some of my friends. The game started in the 3.30 pm and I noticed there were more than 20 thousand spectators in the stadium. I attended the game with 4 of my friends plus roommates who were very close to me. We sat in the front row of the north gallery and we enjoyed the whole game. We shouted when our team did well, we showed our dismay when they performed badly. One of our friends took the national flag and he bore it during the game. We left the stadium in the evening and even though our team was defeated by the powerful Argentine team, we were happy that our team competed them well and performed quite good.
