FIFA World Cup Background

The FIFA World Cup has taken place every four years since its first tournament in 1930 - with the exception of 1942 and 1946 due to World War II - between the older men's national soccer teams of the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA). Since its inaugural tournament, the FIFA World Cup - now also referred to as the Soccer World Cup, the Football World Cup, or just the World Cup - is now the most widely seen sports tournament in the world, with an even bigger television audience than the Olympic Games.

Since fifa world cup 2018 fixtures has also organized youth equivalents of the international championship, in addition to club soccer equivalents and equivalents for soccer variations such as futsal and beach soccer. In 1991, FIFA also introduced a women's soccer equal to the World Cup, called the FIFA Women's World Cup, the first of which took place in the People's Republic of China between twelve states and was won by the USA and which currently occurs between sixteen teams over the span of 3 weeks.

When the planet's first global soccer game had taken place in 1872, in Glasgow between Scotland and England, the creators of the video game - and at the time the first international soccer championship, the first British Home Championship, had happened twelve years later in 1884 between Scotland and Ireland - the game had still yet to obtain much international attention and has been played very little beyond the U.K. But the beginnings of soccer's international popularity had been budding. As other countries did come to acknowledge the game in the years which followed, it was only considered as a demonstration game, especially when it came to the Olympic Games; during the 1900 and 1904 Olympics, it was played as an event, but minus the awarding of any awards.

In 1904, the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) was founded in Paris as a formal, organized global governing body which could reflect the interests and progress of football worldwide, and among its first orders of business was to attempt to establish a really global soccer tournament outside of the context of the Olympics, even though it took decades for them to successfully achieve that objective. The World Cup will eventually become the premiere international sporting event culminating at the coveted sports award on the planet.
