Mexico may have left the 2018 World Cup empty-handed, but its soccer fans have helped set a new football-related record.
At an event in the main square of Zócalo, Mexico City, 1,080 people took part in the Most people playing table football simultaneously which was held on 24 June to help celebrate the World Cup and Father's Day.
The record attempt was organised by Minigols®, a foosball (table football) manufacturer which has licences from FIFA and Mexican Football Federation to replicate players and kits in miniature.
Participants were able to enjoy a friendly game using miniature replaces of the Mexican national team who starred in the 2018 World Cup.
Guests were not only able to participate in an official attempt, but also had the chance to win other prizes.
The winner would receive a trip for two to the World Cup final while the runner-up got a Minigols football table and two Mexico shirts.
