Football Excitement 2012

Cyprus
Football is the most popular sport on the entire planet. It is rightly called the "King of Sports". Football is a social phenomenon with a rich tradition and history. Despite the commercialism of the sport, it has fanatical supporters, for whom the teams and footballers are symbols of worship. For many young people, football is an escape from poverty and destitution and for others a healthy sporting activity. The various inernational championships are an opportunity to unite supporters from different contries and cultures into a colourful celebration, a true football extravaganza.
