The World Cup, held every four years, is so close that if you could kick a ball through time you’d hit it. But since all the action is happening way over in Russia, you may want to get setup to enjoy it from the comfort of home.

If you get the right kit at home you could set yourself up as the place all your mates come to enjoy the game. Yup, that makes it less hassle for you plus you can get them to bring the beers and snacks. So what do you need to create this football Mecca?

2. Be immersed in the sound of the crowd

Big sound isn’t something many TVs come packing in their super thin shell these days. So a soundbar or soundbase is a great way to enhance that without taking up room, dangling cables or meaning an installation hassle. More sound means more crowd noise and clearer commentary so you can get lost in the games the way it should be done.
