Football would be unthinkable without passionate, vibrant crowds. The fans at the FIFA Club World Cup Japan 2012 are making a wonderful contribution to a memorable tournament by creating a magnificent atmosphere at the stadiums.

Supporters have travelled from all over the world to the intercontinental showdown in the Far East, hoping to cheer their favourites to success. And they’re well-equipped too, with drums, flags and lovingly fashioned banners. The fans of Al-Ahly SC, Auckland City FC, Chelsea FC, Corinthians, CF Monterrey, Sanfrecce Hiroshima and Ulsan Hyundai are staging a multicultural festival of football at Toyota and International Stadia.
