FIFA World Cup, occasionally called the Football World
Cup or Soccer World Cup, but usually referred to simply
as the World Cup, is an international association
football competition contested by the men's national
teams of the members of Fédération Internationale
de Football Association (FIFA), the sport's global
governing body. The championship has been awarded
every four years since the first tournament in 1930,
except in 1942 and 1946 when it was not contested
because of World War II.
current format of the tournament involves 32 teams
competing for the title at venues within the host
nation(s) over a period of about a month this
phase is often called the World Cup Finals. A qualification
phase, which currently takes place over the preceding
three years, is used to determine which teams qualify
for the tournament together with the host nation(s).
the 18 tournaments that have been held, seven nations
have won the title. Brazil have won the World Cup
a record five times, and they are the only team to
have played in every tournament. Italy, the current
champions, have won four titles, and Germany are next
with three titles. The other former champions are
Uruguay, winners of the inaugural tournament, and
Argentina, with two titles each, and England and France,
with one title each.
The World Cup is the most widely-viewed sporting event
in the world, where an estimated 715.1 million people
watched the final match of the 2006 World Cup held
in Germany. The next World Cup will be held in
South Africa, between 11 June and 11 July 2010, and
the 2014 World Cup will be held in Brazil.
History of the FIFA World Cup
Previous international competitions
The world's first international football match was
a challenge match played in Glasgow in 1872 between
Scotland and England, with the first international
tournament, the inaugural edition of the British Home
Championship, taking place in 1884. At this stage
the sport was rarely played outside the United Kingdom.
As football began to increase in popularity in other
parts of the world at the turn of the century, it
was held as a demonstration sport with no medals awarded
at the 1900 and 1904 Summer Olympics (however, the
IOC has retroactively upgraded their status to official
events), and at the 1906 Intercalated Games.
FIFA was founded in 1904, there was an attempt made
by FIFA to arrange an international football tournament
between nations outside of the Olympic framework in
Switzerland in 1906. These were very early days for
international football, and the official history of
FIFA describes the competition as having been a failure.
the 1908 Summer Olympics in London, football became
an official competition. Planned by The Football Association
(FA), England's football governing body, the event
was for amateur players only and was regarded suspiciously
as a show rather than a competition. Great Britain
(represented by the England national amateur football
team) won the gold medals. They repeated the feat
in 1912 in Stockholm, where the tournament was organised
by the Swedish Football Association.
the Olympic event continuing to be contested only
between amateur teams, Sir Thomas Lipton organised
the Sir Thomas Lipton Trophy tournament in Turin in
1909. The Lipton tournament was a championship between
individual clubs (not national teams) from different
nations, each one of which represented an entire nation.
The competition is sometimes described as The First
World Cup, and featured the most prestigious professional
club sides from Italy, Germany and Switzerland, but
the FA of England refused to be associated with the
competition and declined the offer to send a professional
team. Lipton invited West Auckland, an amateur side
from County Durham, to represent England instead.
West Auckland won the tournament and returned in 1911
to successfully defend their title, and were given
the trophy to keep forever, as per the rules of the
In 1914, FIFA agreed to recognise the Olympic tournament
as a "world football championship for amateurs",
and took responsibility for managing the event. This
paved the way for the world's first intercontinental
football competition, at the 1920 Summer Olympics,
contested by Egypt and thirteen European teams, and
won by Belgium.
won the next two Olympic football tournaments in 1924
First World Cup
to the success of the Olympic football tournaments,
FIFA, with President Jules Rimet the driving force,
again started looking at staging its own international
tournament outside of the Olympics. On 28 May 1928,
the FIFA Congress in Amsterdam decided to stage a
world championship organised by FIFA. With Uruguay
now two-time official football world champions (as
1924 was the start of FIFA's professional era) and
to celebrate their centenary of independence in 1930,
FIFA named Uruguay as the host country of the inaugural
World Cup tournament.
national associations of selected nations were invited
to send a team, but the choice of Uruguay as a venue
for the competition meant a long and costly trip across
the Atlantic Ocean for European sides. Indeed, no
European country pledged to send a team until two
months before the start of the competition. Rimet
eventually persuaded teams from Belgium, France, Romania,
and Yugoslavia to make the trip. In total thirteen
nations took part: seven from South America, four
from Europe and two from North America.
The first two World Cup matches took place simultaneously
on 13 July 1930, and were won by France and USA, who
defeated Mexico 41 and Belgium 30 respectively.
The first goal in World Cup history was scored by
Lucien Laurent of France. In the final, Uruguay
defeated Argentina 42 in front of a crowd of
93,000 people in Montevideo, and in doing so became
the first nation to win the World Cup.
Cups before World War II
After the creation of the World Cup, the 1932 Summer
Olympics, held in Los Angeles, did not plan to include
football as part of the schedule due to the low popularity
of the sport in the United States, as American football
had been growing in popularity. FIFA and the IOC also
disagreed over the status of amateur players, and
so football was dropped from the Games. Olympic
football returned at the 1936 Summer Olympics, but
was now overshadowed by the more prestigious World
issues facing the early World Cup tournaments were
the difficulties of intercontinental travel, and war.
Few South American teams were willing to travel to
Europe for the 1934 and 1938 tournaments, with Brazil
the only South American team to compete in both. The
1942 and 1946 competitions were cancelled due to World
War II and its aftermath.

The World Cup was first televised in 1954 and is now
the most widely-viewed and followed sporting event
in the world, exceeding even the Olympic Games. The
cumulative audience of all matches of the 2006 World
Cup is estimated to be 26.29 billion. 715.1 million
individuals watched the final match of this tournament
(a ninth of the entire population of the planet).
The 2006 World Cup draw, which decided the distribution
of teams into groups, was watched by 300 million viewers.
FIFA World Cup since 1966 has its own mascot or logo.
World Cup Willie, the mascot for the 1966 competition,
was the first World Cup mascot. Recent World Cups
have also featured official match balls specially
designed for each World Cup.
