Football fans, rejoice! The clock is ticking until the 2022 World Cup extravaganza takes over the globe. And, to make things even more festive, the timing perfectly collides with Christmas to sprinkle some holiday cheer.

To capture the unique magic, the famous Irish betting brand Paddy Power released a Christmas-themed World Cup advert that celebrates the first-ever World Cup to take place in winter. Needless to say, it really does grasp the one-of-a-kind setup we’re about to embark on.

Where were you in ‘22? 

The commercial named “Where were you in ‘22,” featuring Peter Crouch, former English football international, was launched on November 11. The Christmas Spirit-Laden advert has it all – iconic World Cup-related charades, Christmas decorations, church choirs, and Christmas Carolists going rogue.

Avid football fans will also notice previous World Cup moments included in the ad, like the Zidane-Materazzi clash and the furious De Jong tackle on Alonso. 

Paddy Power’s “Where were you in ‘22” campaign encapsulates the unprecedented collision of Christmas and the World Cup and will run throughout the entirety of the tournament. And lastly, much to the delight of all England football fans, Paddy Power offers a completely free bet builder on all England games. Certainly a much-welcomed treat for every sports betting fan.
