About Us

   

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.

Chris is our main blogger, and gets help from Sarah, of Marseille Offside fame.

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.

Sean Keener is the Director of BootsnAll. Sean oversees advertising and media relations for World Cup Blog, while also contributing the ideas and enthusiasm that make everyone else look so good.

    Thank you for this site.

    Of all the World Cup Songs surely the only true football song is ‘Our Finest Hour’ by Winsome and the Churchills. It has everything the England fans want to chant from those German terraces.It’s patriotic,Jolly,lively,totally about football and definitely a little contoversial. I would have attached it to this E Mail if the facility was available.

    Sir,
    It is nice to see the 2006 FIFA world cup .what we have seen in TV monitor it is fine every thing goes in fine weys,talicusting is very high
    Quality etc ,etc . One thing is very disappointing is that the coverage of the
    Play in the view point of TV viewers is not up to the mark . It is observed that 80% of the play is telecasted by one camera which could not drag the
    TV viewer fully involvement in those beautiful well contested games.So,I
    Think in near future it should be improved.

    Above is only my opinion.

    Hi sooz,

    I’m no expert, but you could try using a different browser. Maybe Firefox?

  • sooz

    hey there daryl,

    yes, I think this definitely has something to do with my browser, and will seek out Apple’s support line before doing anything radical to my system. thanks for the heads-up, sending you a cyber beer ( I know that sucks, but I have no cash).
