‘Bring Someone Special’ to the FIFA World Cup

When the FIFA Confederations Cup kicks-off on Saturday, eagle-eyed television viewers will see the message ‘Bring Someone Special’ on their screens on the LED boards. What does it mean?

Throughout the tournament, FIFA will be looking for football fans to tell us why someone special to them, should win an amazing fan experience next summer. By sharing your story, you could win two tickets for the opening match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, including travel and accommodation.

So, what do you have to do? In no more than 350 characters, fans will need to go to: and share their story with FIFA.

Is there a long-serving football volunteer in your local community, who always put themselves above others, you would like to surprise? A teacher who for years, ran the local school team, and prepared boys and girls for local cup finals, for whom being at the FIFA World Cup, would be a dream come true? Or someone close to you, who deserves for a special reason, to win this experience of a lifetime?

The better the story, the better your chance of being the lucky winner. Entries will close at midnight on Sunday 2 July, the day of the FIFA Confederations Cup Final.

Fans will see this opportunity promoted @fifaconfederationscup on Facebook, @fifacom on Twitter, @fifaworldcup on VK and @fifaworldcup on Instagram, so that fans who follow one of FIFA’s digital platforms, as well as the millions who will be watching on television, have an equal chance to win this amazing prize.

The winner, with the most deserving story, will be decided by a FIFA jury, and will announced in due time after the FIFA Confederations Cup. Join in now!
