Guatemala National Soccer Team TicketsKnown alternatively by its fans as "La Azul y Blanco," "La Celeste y Blanco" and "Chapines" in reference to its blue and white jerseys, the Guatemala National Soccer Team has one of the most devoted fan bases not only in all of Latin America but in the entire world. Despite a history of glory and excellent performances in international tournaments in past decades, the Guatemalan team has repeatedly faced great difficulties in its attempts to qualify for the FIFA World Cup. Fans, however, can rejoice because FIFA decided back in 2018 to lift the ban that it had enacted in 2016 on allowing the Guatemala National Soccer Team to participate in the World Cup. Though the Guatemalan team currently sits at a modest No. 130 in the FIFA World Rankings, this decision has injected both fans and athletes with new energy and new hope.
