ModSquad Spreads World Cup Fever Around the Globe


We came. We saw. We soccered (or footballed, depending where you are).

As an international company with Mods around the world, we have a collectively endless range of hobbies and interests. Our individual passions are what enable us to tackle projects of all varieties, but we also look for ways to come together around a common interest.

Even with a vast network of 10,000+ Mods, we don’t shy away from fostering digital camaraderie, and we love when something comes along that we can all get excited about. Most recently, that something was the World Cup, and we jumped into the action with our own ModSquad World Cup tournament! Talk about friendly competition that everyone can qualify for (yes, even the United States).

In our Operations Centers in Sacramento, California; Austin, Texas; and Derry, Northern Ireland, and among our remote Mods around the globe, we divided into teams and filled out brackets as part of a company-wide pool. For the past month, we’ve watched intently and (mostly) patiently to see who would earn bragging rights (a few prizes) and the right to be named the winner of the ModSquad World Cup.

Spreading World Cup spirit from Sacramento to Austin, Derry, and beyond.

This globetrotting soccer ball is part of an awesome prize package for a few lucky Mods.

You can’t have a celebration without decorations! Here’s our Austin office, all dolled up.

Our World Cup excitement is years in the making. Here’s our CMO, Amy K., getting up close and personal with the Winner’s Trophy back in 2014.

Looks like team spirit!

Our Operations Centers prepped for the final match in the best possible way: ice cream, of course!

Sandrine from our People Ops team was in France to experience the glory of their win firsthand!

With their smart predictions and a little bit of luck, a few folks will receive some awesome prizes as winners of our World Cup pools. Congratulations to:

  • Alex P., winner of the Sacramento office pool
  • Steve H., winner of the Austin office pool
  • Sandrine C., winner of the Derry office pool
  • Abdu S., winner of our global pool

The games may be over, but that doesn’t mean our friendly competition ends… after all, there’s the neverending debate over whether the sport is called soccer or football.
