Japan is in the running for the 2022 FIFA hosting duties and an anonymous designer submitted what he/she thinks the mascots should look like. These amazing anime mascots for all 32 teams in this year’s FIFA World Cup were submitted to Rocketnew24, an internet news site who posted them immediately.
All the mascots are color correct and often display the nation’s symbols or emblem. They range from playful and creative, to some being downright mean to the embodied team. I mean come on, Korea has devil horns and Iran’s mascot looks like a militant marauder. Despite a few glances past inappropriate, the mascots are all spunky and fun. I do find it funny though that they’re all women. FIFA is only played by men… Oh. Maybe a call for woman’s rights?
