What to bring to the World Cup
The 2014 World Cup starts tomorrow, and trust us, we can’t wait. Not only does the World Cup bring out a competitive spirit among the countries participating, it gives us a reason to get excited about something, keep up on current events and be social. Even if you’re not that interested in the 2014 World Cup or the sport of football (soccer) in general, you can bet there will be a new group of regulars at your local taverns when you go during the World Cup.
For those of you traveling to the World Cup, we came up with a list what to bring to the World Cup. You’ll need the essentials such as sunscreen and undergarments, but there are a few things you may want to bring that you didn’t even think of.
Unless you’re from Brazil, you’re going to need a passport. Hopefully you’ve already got one otherwise it’s too late and you won’t be able to get to the World Cup, as they usually take anywhere from four to six weeks to receive.
While looking good is always fun, at the World Cup you want to be comfortable. That means comfortable shoes, lots of layers and at least one hat. You never know what you’ll encounter in a foreign country and it’s better to be prepared than not have what you need.
This one’s a no-brainer, but often times, it’s the most obvious things that are forgotten. We recommend having two copies of your tickets, and one on your email or phone.

Even though you may be bringing your cellphone with a worldwide plan, nothing beats the reliability of an old-fashioned paper map. Make sure it’s up-to-date and you shouldn’t have any issues.
