A new Google Doodle shows the start of the 2015 Women’s World Cup, hosted in Canada, while FIFA is in... some trouble. This is a less commercially overblown show than the male equivalent, so it could generate some good publicity.
Football’s main effect on Doctor Who was usually an overrunning Grandstand delaying the occasional episode, until Matt Smith took over the role. Having been near a professional football career himself, his footwork in The Lodger was all him. (This was after the Tenth Doctor did it in the DWM comics, and that in turn followed The Nightmare Game for the Eighth Doctor being influenced equally by Roy Of The Rovers and The Thing.)
Still, the Doctor likes a big show. A Worlds Cup wouldn’t seem out of place.
