Fever Pitch Causes Extra Time In The Shower

By Emma Cox

Everyone here at Mira Showers is cheering England on this June in Brazil! We were wondering how all these star athletes recuperate and enjoy their shower post-match.

It is estimated that the ideal shower time is approximately 4 minutes, which equates to an average of 40 litres being used per shower. We have worked out that after each of the 62 games from the 12th June to the 13th July, 35 men will want a shower, including the important referee’s! This work’s out as 1,400 litres of water being used post match and a grand total of 86,800 litres consumed throughout the whole tournament!Footballwarmdown 2014

Having played a stressful match, it’s important to get the most out of your shower experience, and in a 4 minute shower there are easy ways to help you relax. Our friends at Cheltenham Town FC have highlighted 5 stretches specifically designed for your time in the shower, to help you unwind and balance muscle tension! See how you can put them into practice with our infographic at the bottom of the post.

4 minute shower on average uses 40 litres.

Each squad contains 23 men, with 15 men at any time playing/on the bench. If each team has 15 men playing/on bench, there are 2 teams = 30 plus match officials

Each game also consists of 5 match officials (referee, 2 linesmen, 2 goal line) = 5

So after any game, 35 men will want a shower.

Each game will use: 1,400 litres (35men x 40litres)

Tournament will use: 86,800 litres (1,400 litres x 62games)
