Summary: Bud House is casting for a project where one passionate soccer fan from each of the 32 qualifying nations in the 2010 FIFA World Cup™, will be selected to participate in this web reality show.
"If chosen, he or she will be flown to Cape Town, South Africa, for the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ and enjoy luxurious accommodations, thrilling excursions, and the opportunity to have the kind of access few fans ever have. Thirty-two fans - one from each of the qualifying countries - will live together, sharing their passion for their home team with each other and the world, as an award-winning production company films the excitement of the games and the overall FIFA World Cup™ experience."

"In general, this is the biggest project of this kind anyone has ever attempted. Because there are 32 cast members, from all around the world, this is genuinely a project that wouldn't even have been possible during the last world cup. Before the advent of social networking and online media, it would have been necessary to have producers travel to each of the individual countries to find participants, which would have made the project cost-prohibitive. This is both a new kind of show and a new way to produce it."
