The big new viral thing in the world of social media is the World Cup Of.

Richard Osman kicked it off, with his World Cup of Chocolate and World Cup of Biscuits and World Cup of Crisps and most recently a book called The World Cup of Everything.

More recently there's been a World Cup of Cathedrals (won by Lincoln), Geoff has been running the World Cup of lines on the Tube Map (the final is today), Martin is running a Victoria Line World Cup (seeded into four pots) and there's also a World Cup of Zone 1 Stations (currently in its early rounds).

Not to be left behind, I'm excited to be launching several World Cups of my own on this blog. The first knockout matches in each competition are listed below. Simply make your choice and click to vote in each battle, and the current result will pop up on the screen. I'm sure the associated social media buzz will launch me into the media stratosphere, and along the way we'll discover what the UK definitely thinks!

Best of all there are precisely 16 World Cups, so at the end of the process I'm going to run an extra four-stage knockout to discover which of these competitions is the British public's favourite World Cup, in the Absolutely Official World Cup of World Cups.

Join me now on the World Cup bandwagon, while it lasts, and let's bring that jumped-up football competition down a notch or two.
