The eyes of the world are on South Africa where players from around the globe are competing in the World Cup of Soccer until July 11. As a multi-cultural country, Canadians from coast to coast are cheering on their favourite teams. But gathering with fans in local pubs and restaurants to watch all the action can get pretty pricey. With these tips you can get a kick out of the World Cup without receiving a red card for spending.

  • Sport your team’s colours. There’s no better way to show support for your team than to outfit yourself in their colours and apparel. Check the Zellers flyer on Flyerland.ca for deals on jerseys, hats, flags for your car and more.
  • Cheer on your team. The little ones can get involved in the World Cup excitement by making colourful and creative signs to support your family’s favourite team. See the Michael’s flyer on Flyerland.ca for all the supplies you need at championship savings.
  • Organize a soccer tournament. Get together with family and friends for a soccer tournament in your backyard or a local park. Divide into teams representing your choice of countries and wear their colours. Visit Wal-mart for soccer balls and other equipment, plus refreshments and prizes for the winners.
  • Taste local foods. One of the best parts of World Cup is sampling culinary delights from around the world. When watching the games, try the cuisine from the country of the team you’re cheering for. You can stock up on all the necessary ingredients at your local Loblaws or Save-On-Foods.
  • Host a party. Invite friends and family over for a World Cup party. You can PVR the games and replay them for the event, have everyone wear their team colours and decorate with flags of the world. Serve the food of the countries playing or a variety of dishes from around the globe.
  • Teach kids about their culture. The World Cup is all about bringing nations together to compete in “the world’s game”. Even though school is out for the summer, this is the perfect opportunity to teach your kids about their family background.
  • Take a trip. Visiting the country of your roots or your favourite World Cup team is a wonderful way to show your family the culture first hand. If you haven’t yet booked your summer holiday, check out the last minute travel deals on Flyerland.ca.
