List of World Cup in Toronto 2010 Venues from media:

Post City – Lists every country, thorough list.
TorontoWorldCup.blogspot.ca – A man on the street blog about the experience watching each of the games, really enjoyable and informative, with information on the games themselves.
BlogTO – Nice summary of the major teams.

2010 World Cup Summary: South Africa hosted, loads of vuvuzelas, Spain won the tournament defeating Netherlands 1-0 in extra time. Loads of fans climbed the streetcars in Toronto to celebrate.

New countries for World Cup in Toronto project: Algeria, Cameroon, Chile, Denmark, Greece, Honduras, New Zealand, Nigeria, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Uruguay. North Korea was in the tournament but I didn’t find anyone cheering for them in Toronto. I briefly looked. Also, while Serbia was technically kind of a new country, FIFA considers Serbia a historically concurrent country from Serbia and Montenegro. As I photographed Serbia and Montenegro in 2006, it is actually not a new country for the purposes of this project.

Interactive Map:

Below is the map that I’ve made based on my experience watching and photographing fans cheering for 54 different countries in Toronto during the 2006, 2010, 2014 and 2018 World Cup. The red points are from the 2006 World Cup when I photographed fans from all 32 teams in that year’s tournament. The green points are for 2010 teams I photographed, the yellow points are 2014, and the blue points are the 2018 teams. The best way to see the map is to click on the “World Cup Venues in Toronto” link at the bottom and open it in a large map, then you’ll be able to see a list of all the countries names on the left hand side of the map.
