World Cup fever is ramping up.  Whether you love the game or hate it, there is no getting away from it.  The 2014 FIFA World Cup is here.  There are going to many ways to catch the latest goal action and no doubt you will be seeing the latest football scores plastered all over the place.  But I bet you weren’t expecting to see them on your regular and routine commute to the office, now were you?

There is going to be no escaping the World Cup at all this summer, even on your way to work! When travelling on the London underground, or the Tube as it is known locally, you will be able to see the latest scores on your platform as you wait for your train to the office.

To supplement the existing network of Virgin Media’s WiFi hotspots, which will allow you check scores on your smartphone, ESPN have linked up with Transport for London to bring scrolling results, score updates and news to platform screens and entrances in more than 140 different stations.

ESPN is said to have provided around £100,000 for the privilege of this media outlet and will kick off things on June 12th, when host country Brazil meet Croatia and then the action will continue until July 14th, the day after the World Cup final is played.

What do you think? Is it a good idea to convey this information to everyone as they wait for the train to and from work?  As always, if you would like to leave a sensible comment, then please do so in the comments section below.
