It´s the end of another four year wait ˘ the World Cup has rolled around again and this time we´re off to Germany. On Saturday the 10th of July in Frankfurt, at 3.00pm, England will kick off against Paraguay in the FIFA World Cup group B and now is the time to ask yourself: where will you be?
Frankfurt has a 48000 seat capacity stadium, protected by a translucent roof allowing that early afternoon light to illuminate the players ˘ so capacity crowds can be expected. Let´s break down stereotypes and show them how to be gracious guests and supportive fans (and still have the team turn out a result on the day).
It might seem like it´s a long way away, but right about now speculation about team selection, managers, fitness and tantrums will be filling out the sports pages until they wrap right around to become front page news. We´ve had our Svengate, is Rooneygate next? How many more upsets are there in the pipeline before even the first ball is kicked off? To make sure you don´t miss out, you should be sourcing your tickets to Germany now (http://fifaworldcup.yahoo.com). We are already in the fourth sales stage for tickets to the World Cup, and that means its first come first served. Face prices for group stage matches are set at 35 but you can slide all the way up that scale to 600 for the most expensive seats for the final. That´s face value - and that´s if you can find them!
Of course, if you´re feeling lucky, you might want to skip buying tickets at all, and simply enter the competition from Barclaycard to win World Cup tickets (http://www.barclaycard.co.uk/worldcup ), and although it´s a high risk strategy only the Ronaldinho´s among us can get away with, you could end up with a pair of tickets to each of the 12 venues to watch a FIFA World Cup match, plus accommodation, flights, a pre-paid MasterCard, and more. There are over 500 runners up prizes too, so even if you miss out on the top prize you could still win tickets to see England play firsthand in Germany. It´s only once every four years that the world´s footballing cream come together to decide who is the best, and that time has come around for us this year ˘ would you want to risk missing out? Remember: it´s also only in Germany that the Golden Shoe can be claimed, the Best Young Player settled (Wayne Rooney or Lionel Messi anyone?) and the tournament Golden Ball awarded ˘ and then there is the small matter of the FIFA World Cup trophy itself.
With the pre-World Cup friendlies underway, there´s a chance to check out the competition and see who we think will live up to the hype ˘ with some of the most combustible teams and wildfire personalities coming to Germany this Summer, you need to be doing your research now so that come the big day you can book your place in the terraces to watch this year´s heroes and villains break hearts and become legends.
