Crazy Fans 2014 FIFA World Cup

The 2014 FIFA World Cup may not be over, but seeing as how 28 of the 32 teams have been sent packing, the majority of the fans who travelled to Brazil from all around the world have now gone home. And this fact, combined with the realtive lull in the action this week, makes today the perfect time to do a little best-of list featuring the most insane, die-hard soccer fans we’ve seen over the last three-and-a-half weeks.

This Neil Young doppelgänger with the fancy carrot hat? Yeah, he made the list. To find out exactly where he ranks, you’ll have to keep reading.

Enjoy!

 

40. Portuguese Mustache Guy

Cristiano Ronaldo aside, you’ve got to hand it to Portuguese dudes—they can grow some pretty sweet mustaches.

 

39. Stars and Stripes Forever

If you’ve never shaved Old Glory into your head and beard, I think it’s safe to say you are not a true patriot.

 

38. The Mask Mask

Hey look, Jim Carrey was at the Brazil-Colombia game!

 

37. Harvey Two-Face

two-face world cup fan

First I saw the picture on the left and I thought, okay, I guess maybe one of his parents is English and the other is Italian. But then I saw the picture on the right and realized, no, this is just some dude who lives in Manaus and is really pumped that his city was hosting the World Cup.

 

36. Inflatable Soccer Ball Balloon Suit

Nothing to see here, folks. Just a German guy partying on the beach.

 

35. Swiss Cheeseheads

Apparently all sports fans from geographic locations famous for cheese are required by law to wear cheese-shaped hats to sporting events. (Cf. Wisconsin.)

Who knew?

 

34. French Rooster Dudes

The French national team has a rooster on their official team crest, ergo these classy rooster hats.

 

33. Senor Donkey

I’m pretty sure if an American dude showed up to a soccer game in a sombrero while riding a pretend donkey, that would be considered racist. But I guess it’s okay if a Mexican guy does it.

 

32. Teddy Goalsevelt

No American fan became more famous at the 2014 FIFA World Cup than Mike D’Amico, a.k.a. Teddy Goalsevelt. The Chicago advertising director never planned on becoming famous, but when ESPN’s cameras put him on TV he became the USMNT’s unofficial mascot pretty much overnight, even appearing at an official U.S. Soccer pep rally before the Germany game.

The internet is a crazy, crazy place, isn’t it?

 

31. The Three Lions

england three lions - craziest fans at 2014 fifa world cup

The nickname for the English national team is The Three Lions, because their crest has three lions on it. So that explains this one.

 

30. Dutch Sumo Wrestler

What do you get when you cross a pumpkin with an oompa loompa? A Dutch sumo wrestler.

 

29. Creepy Brazil Fans

“No, those masks aren’t creepy at all,” said nobody.

 

28. Die-Hard Black Stars Fan

“Just in case people don’t quite get it, let me just write the words ‘die hard’ on my chest.”

 

27. Some Japanese Dude in a Frog Costume

Behold a guy in a giant blue frog costume…because Japan.

 

26. Suave Brazilian Dude

brazilian world cup fan - craziest fans at 2014 fifa world cup

Apparently this is some famous Brazilian comedy character, but to random American dudes on the internet (i.e. me) he’s just another World Cup weirdo.

 

25. Intense Japanese Fan

Sometimes one pair of glasses just doesn’t cut it.

 

24. The Rotund Colombian

So obesity isn’t just an American thing.

 

23. Captain Mexico

I admire this guy’s zeal, but I this is not an ideal outfit for watching soccer in 90º heat.

 

22. Darth Messi

argentina darth vader - craziest fans at 2014 fifa world cup

Dude, you’re not supposed to even take Star Wars memorabilia out of the box. Hopefully this has sentimental value to you, because it’s now worthless on eBay.

 

21. Captain Eagle Shirt

awesome bald eagle usa shirt - craziest fans at 2014 fifa world cup

If anyone knows where I can get this shirt, please let me know in the comments section. I want one very badly.

 

20. The Milk Maid

dutch soccer fan - craziest fans at 2014 fifa world cup

Here’s a nice image to file away in your brain for those occasions where you need to think unsexy thoughts.

 

19. Caniggia Head

creepy giant head argentina fan - craziest fans at 2014 fifa world cup

I believe this is supposed to be renowned Argentine hair trendsetter Claudio Caniggia…though knowing this makes the mask no less terrifying.

 

18. Ecuador Fans

crazy ecudor fans - craziest fans at 2014 fifa world cup

I don’t have any clue what is going on here. All I know is that these guys are sporting some interesting headwear.

 

17. Freaky Brazilian Clown Guy

crazy brazil fan - craziest fans at 2014 fifa world cup

World Cup soccer clowns are just as creepy as regular, run of the mill clowns.

 

16. Huh?

crazy belgium fan - craziest fans at 2014 fifa world cup

Best I can tell, this Belgium fan has is supposed to be a soccer player riding a dragon…not that that would make any sense.

 

15. Double Tiger Head Guy

tiger hat tiger face guy - craziest fans at 2014 fifa world cup

Apparently this gentleman really loves tigers.

 

14. Japanese Flag Face

This guy makes me very uncomfortable. Not sure if it’s the nose or the nasty white goatee.

 

13. The Aztec Warrior

Not gonna lie—this one’s pretty badass.

(Memo to Dan Snyder: yes, it’s okay when people of native American decent don native garb in a way that actually honors the culture.)

 

12. Japanese Samurai Clowns

japan samurai guys - craziest fans at 2014 fifa world cup

What can I say? These guys are just hardcore.

 

11. Balotelli Superfan

Something tells me this guy is probably not actually as fit as Mario Balotelli.

 

10. Colombian Elephant Mask

10 scary colombia face mask guy - craziest fans at 2014 fifa world cup

If there are such things as dominatrix clowns, I assume this is the kind of mask they wear.

 

9. Los Taco Hermanos

9 mexican taco guys with peacock guy - craziest fans at 2014 fifa world cup

Once again, if a couple of Americans went to a Mexican soccer game dressed as tacos, that would be considered racially insensitive. But when it’s your own culture, you can do whatever the hell you like.

 

8. The Amorous Argentine Zebras

8 argentine zebras - craziest fans at 2014 fifa world cup

In Brazil, “zebra” is a slang term for a team that records a highly improbable win—i.e., an upset. Thus, some people down there have called the 2014 FIFA World Cup the “Copa de Zebras,” or the World Cup of Zebras, given all the shocking upsets.

Why do these Argentine fans seem to believe their team is a Zebra, even though many people picked them as a favorite at the start of the tournament because they have the best player in the world? No idea. But hey, it makes for some crazy costumes.

 

7. Brazil Eyes

7 brazil contacts - craziest fans at 2014 fifa world cup

This is the kind of stuff that will haunt your dreams.

Sorry, everybody.

 

6. Creepy Ivorian Dude

This guy wouldn’t be so creepy with out the orange lips. That’s what just pushes the whole look over the edge.

 

5. Captain Chile

A super hero who had Godzilla for one of his hands? Why didn’t I think of that?

 

4. World Cup Joker

4 soccer joker - craziest fans at 2014 fifa world cup

There were a lot of red, white, and blue teams at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, and I don’t want to risk offending anyone by guessing which one this guy supported. Instead, I’ll just give you the options and let you decide: Croatia, Chile, France, USA, or Russia.

 

3. The Mustachioed Luchador

3 terrifying mexico world cup fan - craziest fans at 2014 fifa world cup

I’ve just found my next Halloween costume.

 

2. Mr. Carrot Hat

Seriously, that’s not Neil Young, right? Because he looks a lot like Neil Young.

 

1. Inside Out Chihuahau Man

1 disturbing brazil fan - craziest fans at 2014 fifa world cup

I’m assuming everybody sitting next to this guy got a selfie before the game was over. After all, it’s not every day you sit next to a guy wearing an inside out Chihuahua suit at a World Cup soccer game.
