Thanks for an exciting Firefox Cup!

To celebrate the world’s largest football tournament, we launched the Firefox Cup — a friendly, global competition based on the number of users for each team Persona. We’ve seen thousands of fans from around the world showing their team spirit by wearing Personas on their Firefox. The winner for each round was chosen based on the team Persona with the most fans (average daily users) for the week.

Today, we announce the overall winner of the competition: Germany! Congratulations to Brazil and Spain, who were second and third place, respectively.

Here’s a recap of the four rounds:

• June 16th: Brazil won round 1 with Argentina in close competition.
• June 23rd: Brazil kept their lead.
• June 30th: Brazil hung on to its lead in round 3 with 17,380 supporters, just a few more hundred than Germany.
• July 7th: Germany jumped to first place!

Thanks to all the loyal fans and community members for supporting their teams in the Firefox Cup! We’re already looking forward to the next football tournament and challenge Paul the Octopus to follow the Firefox Cup!
