Want to see England win the World Cup?

With the Three Lions finally finding form under Fabio Capello, football fans are full of belief that the national team can make it to the South Africa World Cup in 2010. Buoyed by the emphatic 4-1 victory over Croatia last month and expectation to produce another victory on Saturday against Kazakhstan, hundreds of thousands of England supporters will have started plotting their own path to the finals.

Abbey have worked out the cost for three different types of fans:

No frills fans

Those on a shoestring who fly economy, stay in budget accommodation and take cheap seats at the matches would need to amass £3,372.76 - which means they need to put away £169.76 per month.

Standard supporters

Fans flying premium economy, staying in mid-range accommodation and opting for the medium priced stadium tickets will need to save £5193.71, requiring a monthly saving of £261.42 per month.

Prawn sandwich brigade

Those looking to fly business class, staying in luxury accommodation and taking premium stadium tickets will need to amass a whopping £11,174.79 and squirrel away £562.46 per month.

Reza Attar-Zadeh, Director of Savings and Investments at Abbey, said: "It's great that England have got off to a winning start. But those who fancy the national teams' chances of not only making it to South Africa, but going all the way to the final have some serious saving to do.".
