7 days till we announce the lucky winner!

THE countdown is on! In less than a week the winner of the Ultimate World Cup Experience will be announced.

Right now the Green & Gold Army is gearing up to welcome one lucky football fan and their Best Football Friend to the Samba Nation.

Get ready for all the fun and football you can handle because in a few more sleeps the Rio Home Base package could be headed your way.

That means international flights with Emirates and 22 nights embedded with the Green & Gold Army in Copacabana. That puts you in the heart and soul of Brazil where all the best of the 2014 World Cup takes place.

Plus, the lucky two will be flown and transferred to all three of Australia's host cities to catch every moment of Socceroos action.

Before each match there's plenty of time to enjoy the Green & Gold Army's celebrated pre-match knees-up with the rest of the GGA travelling troop. 

Settle in for a couple of the hours at the bar with the likes of John Kosmina who will be previewing all the on-field battles.

It simply doesn't get much better than that! Well it does, but only if you get selected for the Socceroos.

So, Who goes to Rio? Click on au.fourfourtwo.com on December 6 to find out.

The entries have been phenomenal," said Aaron Zoanetti from GGA. "We and FourFourTwo are really struggling to work down to a short list. Good luck to all!"
