The existing champion is France, which won its second title at the 2018 event in Russia.
The present format involves a credentials stage, which occurs over the preceding three years, to determine which teams get approved for the event phase. In the tournament phase, 32 groups, consisting of the automatically certifying host nation(s), compete for the title at locations within the host nation(s) over regarding a month.
The 21 World Cup events have actually been won by eight nationwide teams. Brazil have actually won 5 times, as well as they are the only team to have actually played in every competition. The various other World Cup champions are Germany and also Italy, with four titles each; Argentina, France, and also inaugural winner Uruguay, with two titles each; as well as England and also Spain, with one title each.
The World Cup is the many prominent organization football competition on the planet, as well as the most commonly seen and also complied with single World Associationing event in the world. The collective viewership of all suits of the 2006 World Cup was approximated to be 26.29 billion with an approximated 715.1 million individuals viewing the final match, a 9th of the whole populace of the earth.17 nations have actually organized the World Cup.

Qatar will certainly host the 2022 competition, and 2026 will certainly be collectively held by Canada, the United States, and also Mexico, which will certainly give Mexico the distinction of being the initial nation to host games in three World Cups.
There are no reasons, benefits or justification for the change proposed by FIFA, said the Conmebol after a meeting on Wednesday. The ten countries of the Conmebol therefore confirm that they will not participate in a World Championship took place every two years.
The World Association FIFA drives the idea of a World Cup every two years, which is sometimes massively criticized by numerous associations. UEFA boss Aleksander Cefer had already announced a boycott from Europe. The FIFA Council last decided that on December 20, a global summit should take place with advice on the reform of the international game calendar. This is a vote on the question again this year according to DFB obsolete.
Infantino-Verbetour without effect
Finally, FIFA boss Gianni Infantino had recruited a journey through South America for a reform of the World Cup calendar. The orientation of the World Cup in a rhythm shortened by two years would worsen the competition and thus raise the World Associationy level especially outside of Europe, said the President of the World Association. In addition, more countries would have the opportunity to align a football world championship.
The project turns away from the nearly 100-year-old tradition of world football and ignores the story of one of the most important World Associations events in the world, now shared the Conmebol. We support the current world championship with its deadlines and qualification systems because it has proven to be a successful model based on World Associationy excellence and rewards efforts, talent and planning work.
