The FIFA Confederations Cup 2013 has proved a joyful celebration of football so far. Of course, that’s not just down to the players out on the sacred turf, but also largely due to the fans who’ve travelled to Brazil from all over the world to give their favourites boisterous and vocal backing at the Festival of Champions.

The loyal followers have put on colourful, enthusiastic and highly inventive shows of support, creating a superb atmosphere at the stadiums and making a huge contribution to a memorable tournament.
