Brazilian sunshine, lazy strolls down Copacabana beach with a Caipirinha in your hand, mingling with fans from the other 31 nations competing at this summer's tournament...it doesn't take a genius to figure out why hopping on a plane to the 2014 FIFA World Cup, now just weeks away, would be pretty amazing.
However, let's not pretend this scenario is all fun and games. After all, who really wants to be stuck up in Row Z squinting against the sun with a load of fellow England fans who've had one cocktail too many?
Here at Betfair, we have a great appreciation of the good old English weather, proper English beer, and English sofas and this summer, we think staying in is the new going out.
If you don't think you're quite set up to host World Cup action in your front room, don't worry; we have the perfect solution for you. We're launching our "Ultimate Night In" competition, which could make your front room the envy of even the most outlandish Premier League footballer ahead of England's opening group game against Italy.
You could win:
- £1,000 cash as a prize
- A brand new 50 inch 3D TV
- A wireless home cinema system
- 11 England shirts (enough for you and 10 friends or family)
- 5 crates of beer
- 5 bags of nachos
- A full size table football table to cover you in case of any potential half time boredom
All of this could be delivered to your doorstep ahead of the opening England game. Thankfully, entering is easy.
