The wait is nearly over. The eagerly-anticipated World Cup final showdown… between two Tube lines… is almost upon us.
Thousands of commuters have been voting for their favourite transport routes, with Jubilee and Victoria breezing past Overground and Northern in the semi-finals over the weekend.
Mr Marshall has taken his competition so seriously that he has even laid on venues for the matches. The final, appropriately enough, will “take place” in Green Park.

OK, so here we go! Jubilee beat the Overground, and Victoria beat the Northern, so today we have a 3rd/4th play off between Overground and Nothern, and tomorrow's final is a repeat of last year's final, Victoria against the Jubilee! pic.twitter.com/C6ZjaoInyQ
He told the Standard last week: “It has been really popular, people get fiercely passionate about their favourite lines. Thousands are voting and more and more people are taking part each time.
“Either people are saying they’ve commuted for years on a certain line and have affection for it or they are saying they have travelled on it for years and think it's rubbish.
“People do like supporting the underdogs, but Waterloo and City will never make it.”
Tuesday’s final is a repeat of last year’s match-up, in which Victoria beat Jubilee by 35 votes.
