What is the World Cup?

The FIFA World Cup is a world championship for national teams sponsored by FIFA, the international football federation. The World Cup is considered the biggest sporting event in the world, with a total TV audience of over 31 billion people. The venue will be a pre-determined stadium in the host country, and the competition will be to compete for the championship.

How to choose a host country

The host country will vote for the World Cup host country from among the countries that are nominated. The decision will be voted on by football associations around the world. By the way, the host country may host the event alone or jointly, so the situation changes from time to time. Since the 2000s, an increasing number of countries have been aiming to jointly host the event, and there is a possibility that the number of independent events will decrease in the future. In principle, the event will be held on a rotation basis among six continents (Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania, South America, and North America), and the principle is to invite candidate countries from countries other than the continents where the last two games have been held. The host country will be determined below.

Holding method

The format of the event is that only the host country can participate in the tournament. Other countries will participate from the preliminary round even if they have won the tournament. In the preliminary round, before the main tournament, the world is divided into six regions and home and away matches are played in each region, with the country with the highest number of points participating. There are 48 countries that can participate, and slots will be allocated as follows.

Europe (UEFA)16
Africa (CAF)9.5
Asia (AFC)8.5
South America (CONMEBOL)6.5
North Central America Caribbean (CONCACAF)6.5
Oceania (OFC)1.5
