Football Buzz

Football is one of the most popular sports in the world. Watched and played on nearly every continent, a shared passion amongst millions, it’s only natural that it should generate a substantial amount of ‘football buzz’.

From moments in history to the latest transfers and future tournaments and competitions, as football fans we want to feed our passion about the game, we want up-to-the-minute information, insights and gossip.

Around matches, competitions and tournaments, local league to international, the buzz is heightened, but nothing compares to the hubbub generated by the world’s most renowned tournament, the FIFA World Cup. The 2022 tournament in Qatar is no different. Since the hosts won the bid for the tournament in 2010, the buzz has been deafening. And, as the tournament draws nearer, the clamour for information grows stronger still.
