The strain that the Fifa World Cup can put on a relationship may lead to individuals facing debt troubles, it has been suggested.

New research from Santander has revealed 2.7 million football fans will spend time and money compensating their partners as a result of the tournament.

The organisation found one-in-ten Britons predicted they would have an argument with their other half because of the high tensions of the competition.

It showed £260 million will be spent on World Cup patch-ups, with 100,000 people spending more than £500 each to make up with their loved one.

Around 2.7 million Brits admitted they expect to splash the cash following the contest.

Andy Smith, spokesperson for Santander Current Accounts, said: “Emotions run wild during World Cup time, but everything comes at a price.”

Figures compiled by Halifax Home Insurance recently forecast British males were set to spend a combined £4 billion on making their homes the ideal place to watch the football this summer.
