Whilton World Cup

Are you ready for the World Cup? Ready for the next month of wall-to-wall football? Are you excited?
No? Us neither!

However we are really excited to announce the Whilton Locks Garden Village World Cup – and the good news is it has nothing to do with football and it won’t even disrupt Coronation Street on the TV!
Whilton Locks World Cup

What is the WLGVWC and how can I get involved, we hear you chant?

Well let’s explain.
After a long qualifying campaign featuring everything at WLGV we are down to the very best 32 ‘teams’.

The concept is simple – we’ll post a ‘match’ between two teams on Facebook – showing two items that WLGV offer, along with a few words supporting each team and you can comment or like each one. The ‘team’ with the most reactions will win that match.

Each match will coincide with the World Cup kick-off times (ish).

The format will follow the World Cup group stages (with a points system), knockout stages, quarter and semi finals, ending up with a final, from which a champion will be crowned.

Pre-tournament favourites include the Full English Breakfast, Sundae Best and Afternoon Tea – again this isn’t based on football just the fact we like our food, don’t you?
That said, there are some pretty tasty matches in the initial group stages – Compost and The Potting Shed could get messy, Cuddle Days and Pet Pick and Mix sounds fun and Garden Furniture and Pond Equipment sounds very much like the contents of my shed!

The cute and cuddly are always going to do well but this tournament has some pretty strong teams from the WLGV Ice Rink, Cuddle Days, amazing Events at WLGV and Garden Furniture all battling for the top spot. Who would you like to win?

The whole event kicks off tomorrow, on Facebook, with Group A and hosts Welcome to Whilton pitched against Gazebo’s and Garden.

We’d love you all to join in and get involved.
