Over 1500 Aussie fans headed over to Brazil with Fanatics to 'Follow Australia' during the group stages and experienced everything; from the highs and lows of following the Socceroos during their group matches against Chile, the Netherlands and Spain through to the world class entertainment provided by the Stafford brothers, Fatboy Slim and the 'Superband' which included some of Australia's best musicians. Memories were made in Brazil that will last a lifetime.

With Brazil now behind us it is time to look forward to 2018 and what an event this will be. Russia will be in all its glory as it becomes the first country in the former Soviet Union to host the FIFA World Cup™. Russia is the largest country in the world and is renowned for its diverse cultures, architecture, food and of course Vodka. With a large number of cities playing host to matches throughout the 2018 FIFA World Cup™ you will get the complete Russian experience on what is set to be a trip of a lifetime.

Following our amazing touring experience during the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, we are more convinced than ever that Russia is set to deliver the greatest World Cup in history. Join us in 2018 to experience this amazing country!
