From 13 to 20 November several nations made their final push to try and claim a place at the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™. The play-offs were intense; the matches unforgettable. Congratulations to all the teams who have made it through to Brazil 2014, especially Algeria, Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Nigeria, Croatia, France, Greece, Portugal, Mexico and Uruguay, who were the last to join the party.
Now that we have all 32 teams confirmed, FIFA.com users can try to capture each and every qualified nation’s unique football flavour in the Be There With Hyundai Contest. 32 World Cup teams, 32 slogans, 32 chances to win with the Be There With Hyundai contest!
Hosts leads the way
The Be There With Hyundai Contest for Brazil 2014 kicked off on 16 October. We have already received over 40,000 entries. That’s almost triple the amount we received for the South Africa 2010 edition of the contest! Fans from the 2014 FIFA World Cup host nation are currently leading the charge with over 16 per cent of the total submissions. Trailing the hosts closely are fans from Colombia and Argentina.
The Be There With Hyundai Contest has grown bigger with each passing edition. Introduced at Germany 2006, the contest drew thousands of fans with the glamorous promise of helping them share their passion for their team with the world. Brazil 2014 is the third time fans will share their voices on the world stage. Find the words to celebrate your team, send them to us using the submission page and your entry could be selected to decorate the official bus for your national team at Brazil 2014!
All you have to do to stand a chance of winning is create a single short phrase that best captures the spirit of any of the 32 finalists. You can submit one phrase per team, giving you up to 32 chances to win the Grand Prize! Submit your slogan before the contest deadline (27 February 2014). Then, come back in April for the unveiling of the official shortlist of finalists. Once the shortlist is live, it’s up to YOU to decide on the winner. FIFA.com users will be able to vote for their favourite entries and crown the 32 winners of the Be There With Hyundai Contest.
The 32 winning submissions will be painted on the official team bus for each of the countries competing in the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™! Your words could Be There in Brazil, carrying your team along their FIFA World Cup journey from first whistle to the Gold Medal Final.
Win a trip to Brazil!
All 32 Club members that submit a winning slogan will receive a framed photograph of their team bus proudly displaying their slogan. All 32 winning names will also be placed into the Grand Prize Draw. One lucky member will receive a trip for two to watch the Round of 16 match in Rio de Janeiro. You could be one slogan away from winning a trip to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil!
