About FIFA World Cup

The FIFA World Cup is the most followed and popular tournament that is run by FIFA. After several changes to its format, football’s governing body hands out 31 spots to participate in the tournament among all confederations. These teams are joined by the host nation to complete all 32 teams.

The first FIFA World Cup was held in 1930, with Uruguay keeping the trophy home. Since then, Brazil has won five titles, followed closely by Germany and Italy, who own four titles.

The 32 teams are drawn in eight groups. The two best teams from every group enter the knockout stage. Extra time and penalties are used to determine the winner if necessary.

France won the 2018 World Cup held in Russia by beating Croatia in the final match. This was the second win for Les Bleus in this tournament, following their victory in 1998.

The next edition of the FIFA World Cup will be held in Qatar in the year 2022. The competition will kick off on November 20, 2022, until December 18, 2022. This decision was made to prevent the effects of high temperatures on the teams and fans if the tournament had been held during the summer. The draw was held on April 1, 2022, where details about the group stage and late rounds were determined.
