World Cup Blog is part of the world’s largest English Language Soccer/Football network in the world.
Since 2002, World Cup Blog has been blogging about international football from the fan’s perspective. The site first appeared during the 2002 World Cup when three intrepid football fans stayed up until the middle of the night writing about the games they were watching and the player haircuts that horrified and amused them. Featured on media sites like the BBC and MSN’s Slate, World Cup Blog attracted worldwide attention and readership that year. Here is what the site looked like then.
World Cup Blog returned to cover the 2006 World Cup in Germany. It was revamped to include a blog for each of the 32 teams in the tournament, as well as one about the referees and and another for general tournament news.
The blogs were and are written by fans in countries all over the world including: United States, United Kingdom, Indonesia, Hungary, Sweden and Brazil. The bloggers were not paid journalists, but they are fans that offer their passion and opinions about their teams on a daily basis.
Following the success of World Cup Blog in 2006, The Offside was launched to cover club football. It currently features well over 300 different team blogs, all written with the same knowledge and passion that made World Cup Blog a success.
In 2008 World Cup Blog covered Euro 2008 with 16 team blogs.
In 2010 We are covering World Cup 2010 in the same manner.
Ian Rose is the Business Manager of World Cup Blog and The Offside. He started out blogging for his beloved Scotland and has since taken a comprehensive role in keeping this the best site covering international football in the world.
