Critical Divide to produce World Cup Guide

4 Dec

Due to public demand, as they say, Critical Divide will once again produce a quick and easy guide to the FIFA World Cup.

Critical Divide offered a guide to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil linked to Brazil: The Guide and Rio: The Guide, and over 300,000 people used the guide over the period of the tournament.

What was to be a one off, has now been extended to the 2018 World Cup in Russia and the site – World Cup: The Guide – has been full updated – most importantly with the schedule by date, team, venue and even TV. You can also follow on Twitter @WC_Guide_2018

To mark the opening on the World Cup on 12 June, Trafalgar Square in London will be hosting Brazil Day, a free festival celebrating Brazil’s culture and its passion for football. The event that runs from noon to 7 pm, is being organised by Brazil’s Ministry of Sport, Ministry of Culture and by the Embassy of Brazil in London, which is located in Trafalgar Square. It is also supported by the Mayor of London.

The event will include live music, DJs, dance lessons, capoeira and much more. The event, however, will not include the screening of the opening match between Brazil and Croatia that kicks off at 9 pm, but a football zone will offer games and activities for all ages, including an inflatable football pitch and a photo-op with a life-size picture of the Brazilian national team.

There will also be stalls selling typical Brazilian street-food and snacks, along with smoothies and soft drinks made from exotic Amazonian fruits.

The Embassy says that fans of all nations that want to get into the spirit are invited to wear the Brazilian national colours of yellow, green and blue.
