Are you ready for some futball? Yes we mean soccer! And no, Hank Williams Jr. will not be singing introductory songs before any futball matches so soccer fans rest easy. Over the last several weeks we have had an opportunity to watch the women soccer athletes around the world fight for the chance to be 2011 World Cup champions. The women will conclude their tournament on Sunday at 2:45 p.m. ET with a spectacular final between the U.S. club and the ladies team from Japan. If the U.S. women’s team can manage a victory it will be their third World Cup title. The 2011 Women’s World Cup marks the sixth installment of the tournament with the first taking place in 1991 (China). The U.S. women’s team has never placed lower than third (1995, 2003, 2007) in any World Cup.
When the women’s tournament concludes on Sunday it will be 3 years until the World Cup returns to the global spotlight. In 2014 the World Cup returns to one of the biggest futball stages in the world. Brazil gets the wonderful opportunity to host the men’s World Cup in 2014. There are currently many new stadiums being built and other older stadiums that are being completely renovated. One of the magnificent new stadiums will be the National Stadium of Brasília. This brand new stadium will house 70,000 people and will be one of the biggest stadiums in the country. Be sure to to get in on the action at the National Stadium of Brasília or any of the other 12 venues for the 2014 World Cup.
