Small contribution to the soccer-related economy

Just a little over 2 months before planet earth stops to watch 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Behind  this global event is an amazing multi-billion dollar business.  In a year like this, it's only natural that my soccer consumption dramatically increases.  I have been going to the stadium at least twice a week and  I just made a very small contribution to the soccer-related economy by buying a professional fussball table from a company called RS Barcelona.  The online buying experience was great, allowing a variety of customization options.  We settled for a white table, black pitch with the players representing defending World Cup Champions Spain against my legendary Brazil National Team (no other choice would do).  The only detail missing was that I wanted to have the name of the players hand-painted on the back of the jerseys, a detail I would have paid an extra to have.

Enjoying evening fun while the World Cup doesn't start...

Love the options they give you to make the table your own. Guess the only thing missing is a licensing agreement with Clubs and National Teams.

There is a company called Proyectum Sport(minigols.com) that does have licensing agreements with certain teams. This basically allows you to interchange players as you wish in your line-up. More importantly, it offers the company the opportunity to sell you more than the standard 22 players. As a soccer fan you probably would want to buy some of your favorite teams.
