The FIFA World Cup provides fans with the perfect excuse to spend four weeks watching football.
It's also a tournament that tends to bring friends and families together, with gatherings expected to take place up and down the country.
Here, courtesy of the Sports Mole Store, we have picked out eight of the best items that are worth considering purchasing to throw the perfect World Cup party.
If you're planning a BBQ (fingers crossed for some sunny weather) but hate the chore of washing up, party plates are essential. These England-branded ones come with napkins and bunting. £11.30
With England due to play Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica (and hopefully more), why not show your patriotism with an officially-licensed giant Three Lions flag that can be hung up? £8.20
Also, if England are to miss out on the trophy, perhaps hosts Brazil are your second team. Their flag, as well as others from many other nations, are also available. £11.10

At 9.5 metres long, this bunting will prove to be the perfect decoration. There is one flag for each of the 32 countries that will be competing for glory in Brazil, all in group order. £10.00
A pale and summery golden beer with a hint of citrus with the sun shining and the World Cup on the television. What could be better? As well as golden ale, dark and four candles bitter is also available and each can produce 25 pints. £29.95
Of course, you'll need something to put that beer into. This set includes an England pint glass, as well as four beer mats and a bar towel. £13.70

With three matches a day during the group stages, there will be some time to kill between each of them. In that case, get yourself into the garden and try to replicate the goals you've just seen with this replica Brazuca ball. Just try not to ruin the plants or annoy the neighbours! £20.00
It wouldn't be a party without a gift bag, would it?! When you send your guests on their way, how about including some Panini stickers in there? 100 packs £42.50
