Vuvuzela horn sound effect on YouTube

For the FIFA World Cup 2014 games in Brazil fans have dropped the iconic noise maker ‘The Vuvuzela Horn’, in favour of the ‘Caxirola’ even though this instrument has been banned.

For the 2014 World Cup matches both the Vuvuzela and Caxirola will not be sounding off, Brazilian government officials decided they should ban the Caxirola instrument. The Caxirola does not make the same sound as the Vuvuzela but is still loud enough when thousands are using at the same time, and they could be used as a potential weapon.

During the 2010 World Cup in South Africa the Vuvuzela was widespread and even the name went viral on social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

The Caxirola is a plastic shaking device-containing beads, and even though this has been banned in the stadium sales are still rising, which means festive supporters will be playing them.

To be fair many prefer the Vuvuzela, which is perfect for World Cup games, it was iconic in 2010 and without it the entertainment spirit has been lost according to a few football fans.

Do you think World Cup 2014 officials should bring the Vuvuzela back to the Stadium?
