And this year is especially special as the World Cup is being held in, arguably, the ‘Land of Football’, Brazil.
In terms of support from India, Brazil seems to be a favorite to lift the cup. But whether the 5 time champions will clinch it this time around, is anybody’s guess. But apart from teams, fans will also get to watch some of the world’s most skillful footballers take field and do battle with one another. There is enough quality this year in the form of Messi, Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo and Rooney to ensure that the shoes of legends such as Pele, Maradona, Zidane, Figo and Beckham, are filled. The beautiful game has never been so beautiful.
When it comes to support, fans usually go the extra mile by buying merchandise to show support for their favorite teams or players during the season. Be it jerseys, flags or other memorabilia, this is the merchandise season!
