Birmingham UK- 22 May, 2006,
The 2006 World Cup Soccer tournament starts on 9 June 2006 in Munich, Germany. The first game will be between the host nation and Costa Rica.
The tournament will end with the 64th game - the final - on 9th July in Berlin.
This truly is a global tournament, with 14 teams from Europe, 4 teams from North/Central America and the Caribbean, 4 teams from South America, 5 teams from Africa, 4 teams from Asia and 1 team from Oceania. All teams have had to qualify for the tournament, except the hosts Germany. This is the first time in the long history of the World Cup that the holders have also had to qualify.
The holders are, of course, Brazil, who have appeared in the last 3 World Cup Finals, winning 2 of them. They also are - by far - the strongest soccer nation in the World, having won 5 tournaments in all, 2 more than the nation with the second-best record, Germany. Brazil are the acknowledged masters of the game, playing the most beautiful soccer in the world. They enter this tournament as one of the favorites, although the law of averages suggest that they will struggle to win the competition for the 3rd time in the 4 attempts.
The biggest tournament of the most popular game in the world will be watched by billions around the globe. And millions of young (and old) boys and girls will be following an age-old tradition of faithfully tracking the progression of the tournament on specially-prepared wallcharts. But there\'s an even better way - Fibonacci, a small British software house have upgraded and re-launched their brilliant World Cup Online Wallchart, an interactive wallchart that you can use to track the tournament, create your own "what if" scenarios, play games, collate stats with a single click and lots more.
When the Fibonacci World Cup Online Wallchart was released for the 2002 Soccer World Cup it proved to be massively popular - the Guardian newspaper in the UK described it thus: \"It\'s not quite as thrilling as shouting yourself hoarse on the terraces, or as moving as feeling the blazing oriental sun drying the inevitable tears of disappointment as they cascade down your face, but its the next best thing\"
4 years on, it\'s even better; it\'s been improved and upgraded and made even more interactive - a must for all true soccer fans! For a full review of this brilliant piece of software, head over to one of the special World Cup blogs listed below:
