Singapore, like most countries in the world, is gearing up for the World Cup. It’s no secret that most Singaporeans are obsessed with football, and so it’s not surprise that there has been a massive outcry about the charges being imposed by the two telco providers – Singtel and Starhub – for the privilege of being able to watch the matches live in our living rooms.

Enter the Singapore World Cup Festival, a virtual FIFA World Cup experience on Siloso beach in Sentosa. From June 26 – July 12, Siloso Beach will host a non-stop two-week World Cup party, where party-goers can enjoy the sand between their toes while taking in the matches on multiple giant screens.

Accompanying the live sporting entertainment will be ten nights of beach parties, including DJs from favourite local nightclub, Zouk, and live bands from Timbre, and a 5-aside beach soccer tournament, that will see 16 teams competing for a $25,000 prize.

Who wants to go to South Africa anyway?!
