Iron Maiden Play Football (Soccer) Match [Watch]
This footage is taken from the Iron Maiden VHS ‘Behind the Iron Curtain,’ which briefly documented the band in Eastern Europe on the World Slavery Tour. For those who don’t know, bassist Steve Harris is an accomplished soccer player and was asked to train with West Ham United. He kept music as his passion and soccer as a hobby, but still played well!
Iron Maiden and some crew members are seen here playing a soccer match, with Maiden dominating the scoreboard thanks to Harris’ three goals. It’s no secret that the band are huge soccer fans, as Steve even has a West Ham United decal on the body of his bass.
