All about FIFA world cup

FIFA (Federation Internationale de Football Association). Association football, futsal, and beach soccer are all governed, managed, and promoted by FIFA an international regulatory body. It is in charge of planning all significant football competitions, including the FIFA Women’s World Cup and the Football World Cup (FIFA World Cup). It has been organizing the FIFA World Cup since 1930, and it has been organizing the Women’s World Cup since 1991.

On May 21, 1904, Belgium, France, Denmark, the Netherlands, Sweden, Spain, and Switzerland joined FIFA. Presently, a total of 211 national associations is members of FIFA which had a headquarter  in Zurich and is controlled by Swiss law. Gianni Infantino has been the FIFA president since July 2017.

Additionally, FIFA offers a monthly publication called FIFA 1904. It is available for free online and also available in print editions. The 68-page magazine features in-depth interviews and stories about football from throughout the world. Although it focuses mostly on FIFA’s initiatives, events, competitions, and member associations.

Additionally, FIFA has a stand-alone Ethics Committee, that is responsible for looking into potential Code of Ethics offenses. The adjudicatory chamber and the investigating chamber are independent chambers as of 2012.




The Global Cup, also known as the FIFA World Cup, is a four-year competition between men’s national teams that determines the world champion in football (soccer). Women’s national football teams compete in the same tournament, known as the Women’s World Cup.

In 1930, Uruguay won the first cup competition organized by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA). Except for World War II,the tournament is held every four years thereafter. It consists of international, divisional tournaments which result in elimination rounds between 32 national teams. Because World Cup teams are not limited to players of a certain age or amateur level, it more closely resembles a competition between the best players in the world. Referees are selected from lists provided by all national associations.

 The trophy was called the Jules Rimet Trophy from 1930 to 1970 because the Frenchman came up with the idea of the tournament. In 1970, after winning it three times before (1958, 1962, and 1970), Brazil got it permanently and a new trophy known as the FIFA World Cup was put up for competition.

How FIFA world cup works

The 32 teams are divided into eight groups of four teams each using the letters A to H. In the group stage of the tournament, each team plays with another one in their group. In each group, the top two finishers are selected for the next match in the round of 16. Therefore, the World Cup is a single-elimination tournament.

Talk about group-stage math.

A victory results in three points, a tie results in one point, and a defeat results in no points. This can cause teams from the same group to end with an equal number of points.

What if the teams finish tied on points?

You will be exposed to the magnificent tie-breaking idea of goal difference if there is a tie within the group. A lopsided win (or loss) can be excellent insurance or a catastrophic failure because it is the difference between the number of goals a team achieves and the number it has conceded. There are even more issues if a tie in a group is not resolved by points or goal differential. Keep those in mind later.
