My first memory of the world cup was Italy 1990. I was 10 years old and although I was a fan and played soccer I was not enthralled and completely amazed. It wasn't until 1994 where I was passionate and completely engulfed with the phenomenon. That was a memorable World Cup for many reasons. Bolivia qualified for the first time and USA was host (Brazil trained 20 minutes from my house). Stanford stadium was witness to some incredible matches including the quarterfinal game Sweden vs Romania. I was there and it was amazing! Soccer World Cup 2014 will not disappoint any soccer fan as it puts South America to the test in hosting the world cup.
2010 World Cup was also very memorable because my son was 8 years old and I wanted his first memory of the world cup to be a spring board to soccer as a fan and player. It worked! He has been watching soccer ever since and the preperatios for 2014 have already started.

During the 2010 World Cup I created a bracket poster with all the groups. My son and his best friend copied the template on poster board. They had a great time filling in the countries as the World Cup played out. At the bottom they added their favorite countries. I created a template for Soccer World Cup 2014 you can download it below. This is an awesome summer activity that will teach them geography, world history, and about other cultures. You can use is it as a template to copy onto a bigger board or use it as is on an 81/2 x 11 standard size paper.
