2010 FIFA World Cup Map

2010 FIFA World Cup Map
A couple of weeks ago, we discovered an interesting competition run on the Sports Facebook Page to encourage football fans worldwide to support their teams by voting for their countries.

This idea has inspired us to create a map devoted to the 2010 FIFA World Cup that will start on June 11th in South Africa and will be the culmination of a qualification process that began in August 2007.

The map involves 32 countries. Each marker shows the number of fans who have voted for this country. For example, you can see that Chile has the most passionate football fans (more than 405, 000 votes!). Each marker includes an information window with two tabs: Country and Matches. It shows some country stats, such as internet population, FIFA ranking, World Cup Victories and 2010 World Cup matches.

The map also displays the 10 stadiums in South Africa that will host the World Cup. Information windows contain stadium photos and details (name, city, construction type, completion date and gross capacity).

You can view as well the World Cup related tweets and see people around the world talking about this event.
