World Cup Fever – The Four Types of World Cup People

  • The Fans are not the participants of the competition, but they behave as such.
  • Actual participants always stay healthy and spend time with their family and loved ones.
  • Respect the World Cup and the true spirit of competition.

Out of all the people around the world, almost 80% dream of winning the World Cup, whether they are part of the competition or not. The remaining 20% of the people remain neutral. There are different types of World Cup people:

The FIFA World Cup, often simply called the World Cup, is an international association football competition contested by the senior men’s national teams of the members of the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), the sport’s global governing body. The championship has been awarded every four years since the inaugural tournament in 1930, except in 1942 and 1946 when it was not held because of the Second World War. The current champion is France, which won its second title at the 2018 tournament in Russia.

The Fans: The first kind of people are those who support the World Cup, gossiping, passing negative and positive thoughts through the medium of social media. Usually such people are not the participants of the competition, but they behave as such. They are totally involved in it and create an atmosphere which really helps the actual participants of the World Cup. These people keep the participants focused and help by expressing what is wrong, how it can be corrected, what is good and how it can be made much better. Such people symbolize a true love towards their nation.

Social media plays a key role in sharing the thoughts of such people and passing their thoughts around to keep a positive atmosphere. This is how the fever of the World cup spreads with an unimaginable speed.

The Teams: However, for the most part, the actual participants of the World Cup stay away from social media. They have all together a different thought process. They are dedicated to doing their regular homework and sticking to their routine life schedule, without diverting their attention away from fulfilling the dream of achieving the World Cup for their nation.

The World Cup is the most prestigious association football tournament in the world, as well as the most widely viewed and followed sporting event in the world, exceeding even the Olympic Games; the cumulative viewership of all matches of the 2006 World Cup was estimated to be 26.29 billion with an estimated 715.1 million people watching the final match, a ninth of the entire population of the planet.

Actual participants keep looking for different options, solutions, and game plans. They always stay healthy and spend time with their family and loved ones. They usually only appear in social media when their nation, state and/or sponsors are producing the posts. A strictly professional thought process is been followed.

The Distractions: About 20% of the people also contribute with an intention of winning the World Cup but with a different thought process. Such people interpret everything personally rather than professionally, and react to ever decision based on caste, religion, racism, etc.– distracting the attention of the participants and pulling everyone towards their thought process. Such people are part of the social media mix and society as well.

The Neutrals: The remaining 20% of the people stay neutral and don’t care who wins the World Cup. They just keep enjoying the posts on social media and live telecasts as an entertainment and remain as silent observers.

Respect the World Cup and the true spirit of competition. Participate to encourage your team to win, not to see someone else loose.
