BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — It comes around every four years, and this year, it’s in Qatar. We’re talking about the World Cup.

Soccer, or as our international friends call it, football, might not be as popular in the U.S. as other parts of the world, but plenty of News 4 viewers are still watching.

In this past week’s #Just4Fun poll, roughly one quarter of voters told us they’re watching the games, while another 9.8 percent said they might.

That still leaves nearly 63 percent without an interest in watching this year’s tournament. Is our Wake Up! team watching? Find out in the video above and see the survey results below:
