How The FIFA World Cup Works And How It Started

FIFA World Cup is the most prestigious football tournament in the world. It is held every four years and is organized by FIFA, the international governing body of association football.

The first FIFA World Cup was in Uruguay, in 1930. Since then, there have been 20 tournaments held in 13 countries across five continents. The World Cup will be hosted by Qatar in 2022.

The host nation of each tournament determines the number of teams that can participate, as well as their qualification method for the subsequent World Cup. However, all nations must be members of FIFA to qualify for a World Cup and the number of teams from each continent that can qualify is dependent upon the size of that continent’s population.

The current format consists of two phases: The first stage being a group stage with 32 teams divided into eight groups with four teams each and the second stage being a knockout phase consisting of 16 teams playing a single-elimination tournament until all but one team remains to win the title.

The host and the date of the competition are chosen by FIFA, usually two or three years prior to the start of the tournament. The World Cup is held every four years, with the 2026 edition scheduled to take place in North America.
