FIFA World Cup – The Greatest Sporting Event

International rivalry, patriotism, passion, individual and team skill, screaming fans, national camaraderie, worldwide fame and exposure, intense action, and high drama. What are we talking about? Futbol’s World Cup!

Why is The World Cup an unparalleled sporting event? Here are three indisputable reasons.

Rivalry. The intense passion of the fans is such that at futbol games opposing team fans are separated from each other. If you haven’t experienced a futbol game firsthand, then you haven’t beheld the potent emotion, the palpable fervor, the fiery depth of loyalty and resolute devotion the fans hold for their teams. The atmosphere is electric and charged with ferocious dedication.

National Exposure. Because it is the World Cup, meaning national futbol teams from all over the world participate, the national exposure is super high. People that normally don’t even watch futbol will stay up into the wee hours, take days off work, and fill every pub, bar, and living room to capacity to watch the games with their fellow countrymen and women.

Streets in every country are overflowing, big screens are tuned to the games in every corner, conversations are primed with updates and replays. World Cup discussions continue for decades. Ask any Brit about the 1966 Cup, the last one England won, and they’ll still have all the juicy bits for you.

Worldwide Competition. Players are pulled from the best futbol team clubs in each country to wear their country’s colors. With four years of preparation and qualifying games, the individual competition is incredibly high. Because clubs are made up of members from all over the world, teammates may find themselves on opposing sides in the World Cup!

Plus, player skill levels carry high expectations. The passion of the people and country reputation is so important that players are held in high esteem, and if they fail, they can personally succumb to riotous behavior by their countrymen.

So, get your DISH Network ready to tune in and experience the magic at the next World Cup! If you don’t have one of the many DISH Network packages that include sports set up, then you better get moving. Intense national pride, extreme sports action, and amazing skill await.
