FOLLOW A GROUP OF AMERICAN Soccer fanatics AS THEY DRIVE from the USA to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia! LETS GO!!!
What happens when a group of American Soccer fanatics decide to drive half way around the planet to attend the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia?
What discoveries will they stumble upon while pushing through the many barriers that stand between their home and their destination?
With the memory of 2014’s World Cup adventure to Brazil still ripe in his mind, adventure filmmaker Jeremie Brilliant enlists the help of his longtime collaborator Chris Laughter and a group of friends to build out a caravan of live in vehicles for a 6 month long overland journey.
Starting in Los Angeles, they will head north to Alaska and ship their vehicles to China. On March 1st, 2018 they will arrive in Hong Kong and begin a journey through Asia, Russia, Europe and North America to complete a horizontal lap of the planet while exploring culture through the lens of “soccer”.

“If I am to leave any type of legacy at all, no matter what, at least I can say I tried to travel and make people happy. That’s it, the simple gesture of saying hello, and spreading the stoke.”

“Since leaving the USA for the first time at the age of 30 and realizing that I literally don’t know a damn thing, travel has been a major focus in my life. It has become one of my most passionate missions to continue exploring areas which I know little about, to break bread with people who have experienced a completely different life than I, and to continue asking questions, reflecting on the answers, and sharing my discoveries with others."

Originally from Philadelphia, Kyle has an extensive background in Action Sports, travel and motorsports. It was a no-brainer when he was asked to accompany Jeremie to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. He was an integral part of the ‘American Dream Project’ and was able to maintain the van through the entire trip with only one at tire and one change of brakes. Kyle’s tattoos were a huge hit with the kids in South America.
