World Cup fans are swapping traditional burgers and sausages for tempura prawns and other Christmas party food to snack on during the 4 week tournament.

Supermarket giant, Tesco say they’re already seeing an earlier than usual high demand for its festive party food treats as a result of the tournament taking place in winter and not the usual summer.

Other predicted World Cup food and drink sales across the whole tournament include:

  • Christmas party food – More than 13 million packs
  • Nearly 8 million pizzas
  • Nearly 3.5 million pies
  • Nearly 2 million packs of peanuts
  • 5 million bottles/cans/packs of beer
  • More than 16 million bottles of wine

Tesco party food buyer Natalie Linden said: “In the past with World Cups taking place in June and July it’s always been BBQ favourites such as burgers and sausages that top football fans’ shopping lists. 

But with this tournament being nearer Christmas for the first time ever, it’s pigs in blankets and tempura prawns that are going to be the new hero foods.”
