3 Days To Go - World Cup 2018
I don't know about you but I'm like a kid at Christmas just now. My wall chart is already up because it's only 3 days left until it all kicks off in Russia!
But before we get there let's cast our eyes back to the final of the last tournament. Played out between Germany and Argentina in Rio de Janeiro's famous Maracana stadium, over three billion people tuned in to watch the World Cup Final. Truly incredible.
An unprecedented amount of money has already been spent on sponsorship deals as well as preparations for the tournament in Russia itself. The World Cup truly is the greatest sporting event on the planet!
With the rise of streaming services and faster internet connections, accessibility for watching World Cup matches has never been easier and this year's tournament is expected to see a boost in viewing figures for that very reason - and in some cases for free.
The Russians will be hoping to steal the spotlight this summer and good luck to them!
