While the players are obviously the stars of the World Cup, their fans aren’t too far behind. The famous soccer tournament just wouldn’t be the same without these bouncing supporters packing out the stadiums. Face paint, crazy costumes, beloved mascots, full traditional gladiator getup; you name it, soccer fans will do it. But which country’s supporters will go the furthest to show their love for their team? Let’s find out!
Brazil are the most successful team in World Cup history, having lifted the trophy five times to date. They’re a true powerhouse in international soccer. And the same can be said of their fans, too. Dressed from head-to-toe in yellow and green, their passion and enthusiasm is truly infectious. Just look at this guy! Can he and others like him push The Seleção on to a sixth title in Qatar? There’s a very good chance.
If you ever wanted a perfect snapshot of Mexico’s passionate fanbase, here it is! These guys absolutely adore their national side, and always follow them in large numbers to the World Cup. Few other supporters can match the colors on display once they file into the stands. Yet despite their best efforts, El Tri have never made it past the quarter-finals at the tournament. Could that change in Qatar?
There aren’t many other World Cup nations who boast a more boisterous set of fans than England. Clad in white and red, they follow their team through thick and thin. And as you can see here, the supporters love sharing those feelings of ecstasy and pain together. This duo will no doubt be hoping that the Three Lions can better their fourth-place finish in 2018 at the 2022 tournament.
4. The Netherlands
When fans of the Netherlands arrive to watch their national team, they’re very hard to miss. It’s like looking at a sea of orange in the stands! And this trio here have a lot to be happy about. After missing out on the 2018 tournament, the Dutch are making their World Cup return in Qatar. With three final defeats to their name in 1974, 1978, and 2010, can they finally go one better in 2022?
