Fans of the Soccer World Cup

2014-06-23 14:12
Cape Town - Millions of fans have traveled to Brazil to cheer on their favourite teams as they compete for soccer's greatest prize.

It is every soccer fan's dream, to support their team at a World Cup. While the lucky ones have begged, borrowed and stolen to make their way to Brazil, there are some that have to settle for home comforts during the soccer spectacle.

Here is a glimpse of how fans are supporting there team in Brazil.

USA lead the way in the number of fans attending the 2014 SWC. Poor England, they would've made the semi-finals if the tournament was decided on fan passion.


South Korea may not be the best performing team at the SWC but their fans would definitely make the knockout rounds. The South Korean fans have arguably the hardest "pool" they have to wake up at 4.30 am in order to cheer on their team.



German fans have reason to cheer, as these fans are at a public viewing area in Heiligengeistfeld, Germany. The national team look to be on the verge of qualification to the Round of 16 and with Mueller, Lahm and Goetze playing well, the Germans look set to go far in Brazil.



Americans are apparently not big fans of soccer.

Tell that to this guy!



And these guys!



Algeria managed to find their scoring touch against a poor Korea Republic. The result? Algeria' first SWC win since 1982 and these scenes in Algiers.



Last but not least on the list of "Best SWC fans" are the Ivory Coast. They have Didier, Yaya, Gervinho and this guy...



Are you in Brazil? Or are you watching the game at home? Wherever it is we want to see how you are getting into SWC fever and how you are dressing up to follow your favourite team in Brazil. Send your pictures to mysport@sport24.co.za or tweet us @sport24news.
