It is official! World Cup FEVER has gripped Lehigh Valley, PA and the only cure for this is more SoccerFest! That's what the crowds were saying and they were satiated by big news.

What was once a two weekend festival is now extended to encompass the remainder of the 2014 World Cup.

With that expansion, here's seven more things to know about #LVSoccerFest. (See the original six things to know about SoccerFest.)
