The Tifosi are probably the world’s most successful fans thanks to cheering for one of the most successful national teams ever to play soccer. They’ve cheered the Italian team to win four FIFA World Cup titles, two European Championships, and probably more second and third positions than any other team in the world. It is often said that the Tifosi put the “fan” into fanaticism with their world-renowned displays.
“Gli Azzurri,” as the Italian team is popularly called, last won a World Cup title in 2006, placing 2nd in the 2006 FIFA men’s rankings. It was placed sixth in the same ranking in 2022
