Price £12.99 


World Cup 2018 Assembly (apologies - the picture on website for this product is for some reason for World Cup Quiz! I am in throes of changing this)

Cast Size - this includes Referee plus 32 competing nations - but speaking parts can be doubled up, to the number required.

Duration - Around 20 minutes (not including music)

A referee's job is never the easiest in the world - but put him in charge of 32 teams from across the world - all together, at the same time ..... Does he have his work cut out or does he have his work cut out?! Join him plus 32 nations in this celebration of the World Cup - all lining up for one of the greatest sporting events on the planet!

Sample Text:

Referee:          Sorry, I didn’t quite catch that. What are we here celebrating today?

Whole Cast:     (Shouting louder) THE WORLD CUP!

(Referee blows whistle)

Referee:          OK. OK. Sit down everyone. Don’t let’s get too excited! It is, after all, only football!

English Fan:     (In outrage) Pardon? Have you never heard what the great Bill Shankly had to say?

Referee:          No. But I’ve a feeling I’m going to!

English Fan:     He said “Some people believe football is a matter of life and death.  I’m very disappointed with that attitude.  I can assure you it is much, much more important than that”!

Referee:          (Shrugging) And there was me, thinking it was just sport! So, let’s find out a little more about the World Cup, starting with where it’s going to be held this year, 2018.

Russia:             In Russia! We, as the host nation, (turning to cast) are happy to welcome you all!

(Everyone cheers)

Referee:          Thank you, Russia. Tell me. How many countries are there competing this year?

Russia:             Thirty two!

Referee:          Let’s meet them! In Group A

(Each country, represented by a fan dressed in his team colours, stands and waves national flag in turn before sitting down again)

Russia:             Russia! We’re the host nation

Saudi Arabia:   Saudi Arabia. The first team to take on the host nation in the opening match!

Egypt:              Egypt!

Referee:         Welcome back!

Egypt:              Yes, it’s been 28 years since our last appearance in a world cup, in 1990.

Uruguay:         Uruguay! We were the very first host, in 1930. Thirteen teams took part – only four from Europe. Guess who won? Uruguay! Beating Argentina 4-2. And guess what? We won again in 1950, 2-1 against Brazil!

Referee:          (Blowing whistle) Next group! Group B!

Portugal:         Portugal! Current European champions! In the same group as our neighbours

Spain:              Spain! We hosted the World Cup in 1982 but had to wait until 2010 to win!

Morocco:         Morocco! 

Iran:                 Iran!

Referee:          Wow! That’s some tough call, being in the same groups as Spain and Portugal!

Morocco:         We know it!

Iran:                 But we will give it our best!

Referee:          Splendid spirit! (Blowing whistle) Next group – Group C!

Please note: The script is available in word document format on purchase of Performing Rights Certificate. The scripts remain free of performance rights for staging in the class room but as an assembly in front of a non-paying audience you need to buy a single Performance Rights Certificate to cover you for the play you are purchasing.

For performance rights, please select from options below. Please note that these are in addition to the price of the play (12.99). For extra certificates (additional performances) and any queries re: performance rights please email me on





If you experience any difficulty with download, just email me on  - I always send the scripts as email attachments in my follow up email to your order so there will not be any delay.
