The Mounties are at the World Cup, thanks to Canadians Geoff, Graham and Stephen Rawlinson. The trio, making their first brothers' trip in more than 10 years, range in age from 48 to 56.

Geoff and Graham are from Toronto, while Stephen calls Edmonton home. They got their tickets some six months ago via the FIFA portal lottery, with Graham in charge of the logistics.

That included assembling facsimile Mountie costumes for the "once-in-a-lifetime trip." In real life, the brothers are a banker, lawyer and in the oil and gas business.

Once they got match tickets, booking accommodations came next in the form of an apartment through the tournament organizers.
