The New Statesman Alternative World Cup Wallchart

Still not sure who to cheer for in the World Cup? Help is at hand.

If the prospect of 64 games of football across 31 days is leaving you bemused, confused or simply uninterested, let us help you through it with our ethical take on the World Cup. All 32 teams are graded by the following criteria, letting you make the right choice:

  • Peace
  • Green credentials
  • Press freedom
  • Quality of health care
  • Stability

You can download our World Cup Wallchart by clicking on the link below.
