A record-breaking 12 seasons in a row has given us a glimpse into the incredible history of futbunny-style nights, where fans gather at home and party until the wee hours.
A decade ago, only about 20 per cent of the country’s population would have seen the first episode of the show in 2018.
The show is now being enjoyed by fans across the globe and has become a fixture in pop culture, with songs like the catchy “Perpetually Nights” playing across TV shows, films, music videos and commercials.
The 12-season streak started in 2003, and has seen more than one million fans attend the annual nights, which typically end at about 10am on the first Sunday of December.
Perpetual Nights have been part of the pop culture landscape for a number of years.
“Perpetuality is the way we live now,” said Joe Stubb, a former England manager who became the first person to manage England’s Under-20s during the show’s debut.
For many fans, it was a chance to be in the same room as the stars and entertain with them for long periods of time.
Stubb became England manager in 2002 and oversaw the first annual night, which he described as a “superclub experience”.
“It was fantastic, and there was a lot of good stuff happening,” he said.
He described the atmosphere as “totally unprofessional”, and said the show had a “real” feel to it.
At the time, many felt the idea of a club hosting an event at such a late hour was a bit odd.
But it was only a matter of time before the world got its hands on the tunes, and fans of the popular shows were ready for their chance.
There were two main reasons why fans were excited for the show, said Stubb.
First, the show was produced in England, where the national team was based.
Second, the night is played in the city of London, where it has become an important part of English football folklore.
In the UK, the first England fans to attend the show were aged around 25 to 28.
It was during a night where a number were given away shirts to celebrate their first win of the season, Stubb said.
“I was very, very impressed by the response,” he told BBC Sport.
After a week at the club, the players got a call telling them to go to the pub for a pint.
They had been given a £50 voucher which allowed them to attend a party that evening.
“It’s something that’s happened a couple of times before,” said Stobbs.
“There’s been a couple who have been really successful in getting away with it and a couple others who haven’t had the luck.”
But there was no money, no sponsorships, nothing, just the love of the game.
This was a really unique opportunity to see the best of the best at their best, and it’s always going to be a huge privilege for me to have been involved.
“”We don’t think of ourselves as a club, we think of it as the fans and that we’re here to support the team.
We’re a club in the game, but we’re also a club of the fans.””
[The show] gives us an opportunity to go out and have a drink and go, ‘OK, let’s just go for a walk’,” he said, adding that fans of other teams were also given a chance.
“We’re a club in the game, but we’re also a club of the fans.”
And we can’t stop.
We can’t put a stop to it.
“The popularity of the night has grown significantly over the years.
The club has hosted the annual event since 2007, and many fans have been invited to the stadium to see their team take on a rival in the final of the Europa League.”
For Stubb and his team, the event is part of a tradition which he describes as “a little bit of a cult”. “
So it’s something I really enjoy and the people that are at the games are fantastic.”

Fans are encouraged to buy a ticket, attend a match, or even play a game.
And as fans come together for the night, they have a chance for a chat with their idols.
“The thing about it is it’s a social experience,” he explained.
“You’re talking to your idol, you’re talking with the manager and your manager’s talking to you.
It’s like being in the
