And if the trends identified by Sponsorship Intelligence are accurate it appears that the World Cup’s commercial appeal can still grow further, offering more opportunities for sponsors… And that ever-increasing interest, Mr Graham believes, can only be good for football sponsorship, as companies strive to be connected with the appeal of the World Cup. “It is the drama that is the core promotional hook for sponsors,” he says.

Gibson calls for unity in local football
Jamaica Observer – Sep 13, 2006
Gibson cited the growth of women’s football and the increase in sponsorship, adding that the JFF has managed to attract significant sponsorship for the various leagues. He argued that the country’s qualification for three sucessive FIFA World Cup tournaments between 1998 and 2000 should have seen significant investments being plowed back into the coffers, but this was not so. Gibson said the absence of games at the National Stadium following Jamaica’s elimination from the 2006 World Cup campaign was not an easy decision, but a calculated gamble which would understandably make the JFF unpopular. However, they could not afford to be reckless, he added. Talk Back

Matches move to pay-TV
NEWS.com.au – Sep 12, 2006
I’m not blaming Fox (Sports) for this. "They run a business and if I was in their position I would have done the same thing. "
The Socceroos appear to be heading for cult status after Australia’s 2006 World Cup appearance proved to be a ratings bonanza for SBS.

Incredibly, the Federal Government has not listed the Socceroos as part of the anti-siphoning list. Strangely enough, however, England’s FA Cup final is part of the anti-siphoning list. Fox Sports now own the TV broadcast rights to the Socceroos and the A-League in a $120 million deal which was struck this year.
