The Post Office has issued a warning to all football fans who are planning to follow all the World Cup from their living rooms. Research carried out by the Post Office has found that a high percentage of these fans will splash out on new items for their home ahead of the month long tournament. According to the research which was unveiled last week, 9 out 10 supporters are planning to watch the World Cup matches from the comfort of their sofas. 93% of these fans say they will increase their spending during this period by £200 as they plan to invest in new plasma TV’s, fridges, and even BBQ’s to make the occasion all the more enjoyable. 31% of those surveyed also said they intend to invite friends over to watch the World Cup action at their homes. Entertaining comes at a price of course, whether it’s supplying alcohol, and making sure you and your pals have a big enough TV on which to watch the big match. The Post Office’s main concern is with the amount of money which armchair fans are planning to invest in new kit for their home ahead of the tournament. They are recommending that anyone who splashes out on new equipment for their home for the World Cup, should check that their annual insurance policy adequately covers their new purchases in case of damage or theft.
