In the summer of 2018, the World Cup in Russia ended with France defeating Croatia 4-2 to win the Hercules Cup.In less than three months from now, the first World Cup after the epidemic - the Qatar World Cup is finally coming!!!

In these days, these three types of Chinese people will definitely be in your sight:

Some people stayed up all night watching the game and cheering for the players and teams they supported. Those were Chinese fans.

Some people watch football all night long and place lottery bets on the teams they are optimistic about. Those are fake Chinese fans.

But there is still a group of people who stay up late every day and wait in front of the computer screen, preparing to use the World Cup to make a big splash. That isChina cross-border e-commerce merchant

At that time, Russia spent a lot of money, and the government spent 14.2 billion US dollars, making this World Cup the most expensive World Cup in history.(However, it has been reported that Qatar has invested more than 200 billion US dollars in infrastructure for this World Cup alone, and has also customized and developed innovative stadium temperature control technology. It can be said that everything is high-end, and the most expensive World Cup is probably coming soon. Changed ownership.)

In 2018, men, women, and children all over Russia tried their best. In just three months from April to June, the whole country made more than 57 million purchases on AliExpress.What is this concept?This is equivalent to Russians going without eating or drinking for 24 hours, 'chopping' their hands an average of 7 times per second.

When it comes to 'chopping hands', women have always been inferior to men, not to mention the women of the fighting nation. They have become the main force of 'chopping hands', mainly buying clothes and dolls.Young people under the age of 24 are frantically ordering tops and T-shirts to watch football, and sales have increased by 257%.

As early as three months before the start of the game, Russians have begun to purchase various 'artifacts' for watching football online.Orders for football alone increased by 60%, and sports-related items surged by 128%.

There has been an obvious surge in sexual products (up 2566%), cosmetics (up 1467%), holiday party supplies (up 94.99%), towels (up 109%), women's hot pants (up 67%)...all are carnival fans Night must be 'equipped'.

Of course, not everyone can walk into stadiums to cheer for their favorite stars or teams. The number of global viewers of the Russian World Cup reached 3.262 billion, and the vast majority of fans watched the games through various viewing channels.As a result, electronic equipment such as TVs, tablets, and projectors were all bought. Tablet orders increased 20 times, and TV sales increased 15 times.

If the first person who is happy about the World Cup is the fans, the second person is probably the bar owners.Orders for bar stools alone have soared 198 times, yes you read that right.Bars will set up a special area for fans to watch the game, so tables, chairs, wine glasses, and World Cup-related atmosphere decorations are the purchase targets of bar owners.
