Did You Know

The 2018 FIFA World Cup kicked-off (pun intended) last week on Thursday in the first match between Saudi Arabia and Russia, the winning team and host of the games. This year, a grand total of 32 teams from around the world will be competing for the 18k gold cup, earning a collective $400 million (USD) in prize money. The winning team may get to keep the cash, but once the cameras stop rolling, they have to return the trophy in exchange for a gold-plated replica. The champion year and team name is etched into the base of the original cup. Who will win the World Cup? What's your prediction?


Have a great week and keep networking!
