Describe the atmosphere surrounding the football World Cup in 2006 or the Eurocup in a single word: Partyotism!

This word creation is at least two years old, but I only became aware of it today. In fact, it probably came into live at the same time the Public Viewing areas were created. Even though I admittedly never went to watch a single match on a public viewing screen, it is hard to deny that this was one of the most successful inventions, also on an international scale, which Germany has come up with in recent years.
