Scheduled to be the 22nd running of the FIFA World Cup competition and for the first time in the events history, taking place in Qatar from Sunday 20th November to Sunday 18th December, this year’s FIFA World Cup will be held during the northern hemisphere’s winter months to avoid the blistering heat of summer in the middle east.

All World

Being one of the biggest sporting events, the competition in 2018 gained over 3.5 billion viewers – that’s almost half of all humans on the planet – with 1.1 billion total viewers watching the final match alone.


This will be the first World Cup ever to be held in the Arab World and the second to be held entirely in Asia after the 2002 tournament in South Korea and Japan. Played in a reduced timeframe of around 29 days, the opening match will be contested between Qatar and Equador.

If you have been lucky enough to purchase tickets for the event in Qatar, or if you are just watching from home with family and friends, why not come and grab some fireworks or smoke grenades from our store to show your support.
