9 Things Non-Football Fans Can Do During the World Cup 

November 24, 2022

The FIFA World Cup has started, and now football fans worldwide won’t let other people hear word. Half of the world’s population is paying attention to it. 

What’s now going to happen to the non-football fans that are forgotten by family, friends, lovers, colleagues etc.? What should they do with their time? If you’re not a football fan, you can use this time to:

Time travel

Use this opportunity to run away from adulting and travel to when you were still a child and had zero responsibilities and no worries. Since the world cup will be happening, not many people will notice your absence. 

Learn how to play football 

You’ve realised how much money footballers make from the world cup, and now you want to join because sapa is showing you shege. It may be too late to join this year’s World Cup. But if you train hard enough, maybe you can join them next year.  

Get a new degree 

You have enough time to go back to school, attend lectures, take exams and graduate with a new degree. 

Discover the cure to a disease 

While everybody is busy watching football, you can do more important things like saving people’s lives. 

Watch the world cup 

If you can’t beat them, join them. 

Go for a reality TV show

Use the 28 days of the World Cup to enter a reality tv show and become famous yourself. 

Fall in love and chop breakfast 

You can meet a fellow non-football watcher and fall in love. But once World Cup ends, one of you will realise that your lack of interest in football was the only thing you had in common. And that’s how breakfast will be served. Maybe if you’re both still single after four years, you can reunite during the next World Cup. 

Leave your job and travel

Your boss may be too distracted by the World Cup to notice you’re gone. Just make sure you come back before December 18. Or before their favourite team loses and crashes out of the tournament. 

Get a PAGA card and go shopping 

Paga has partnered with Visa and FIFA World Cup to bring you the Paga Visa card. This prepaid debit card can be used to buy things and withdraw cash in much the same way as regular debit cards.

 

Unlike a regular debit or credit card, a Paga Visa prepaid debit card doesn’t need to be linked to a traditional bank account. So there are no requirements like your great grand mother’s birth certificate or any other complex document to get the card. It also helps you manage your money and can be used anywhere in the world. Visit the website for more information about the card.
