FOOTBALL FANS! Manic Street Preachers 2022 “Lyrics WORLD Cup”.
Just for fun in 2022./ !✍️ 📝⚽ 🏆 /
– Only countries/regions mentioned or referenced in Manic Street Preachers songs count. (this includes cities from that country, people from that country or a clear and obvious link to that country).
– Any Manic Street Preachers song can count (including cover versions).
– Each country will have only ONE entry into the final World Cup. (If a country has 2 or more songs (common), then play-offs will be held to decide which song represents that country.
– If a song has NO specific country reference, it CANNOT enter the World Cup. No exceptions.
– Some songs contain multiple countries (If White America…). In this case, the song can be entered twice or more, but there is likely to be a seeding system later for that.
– The MSPWC #mspwc will be held in November – December 2022, the same time as the FIFA World Cup.
– The final World Cup will have probably 32 or 48 countries (TBC).

– The below list is just a draft/rough guide of course and is subject to change. Nothing is final yet. Get adding.
– Since I am the person who wrote this post, I have control and discretion over what songs and countries count or not. In the event of any debate, democracy of the group may be used. I’m not that strict but the lyrics/link from the song must be clearly linked to that country to qualify.
