The Fifa World Cup is played every four years, and is hosted by different nations, who bid for the right to hold such a prestigious event. Since 1998, after a rigorous qualification process, each finals-tournament has been played out over a four-week period, between 32-teams. In 2017, it was announced that from 2026 the format would expand to include 48 team’s in the final tournament.
Fifa World Cup In Russia
The upcoming 2018 tournament is set to be hosted in Russia for the first ever time. Each football Confederation has their own qualifying tournament, and each Confederation is allocated a number of places within the final tournament. For all Confederation’s the qualifying results are finalised by November 2017, giving the successful team’s ample preparation time before the tournament kicks off on 14th June 2018.
Russia 2018 will follow the same format as previous tournaments with a group stage comprising of eight groups, each with four teams. The top two teams in each Group, after each has played the others once, will advance to the knockout stages. Following a pre-determined pattern the remaining 16 teams will be paired in knockout matches with the winning team advancing to the next stage. This elimination format continues through quarterfinal and semi-final stages, until two teams remain, who will battle it out for the title of 2018 Fifa World Cup Champions.

The Fifa World Cup was first played in 1930, the tournament was hosted and won by Uruguay. Russia 2018 will be the 21st edition of the tournament, and anticipation is already running high as football fever descends around the globe. Out of 21 tournaments only eight national teams have lifted the Jules Rimes trophy.
1. Brazil (5) 1958, 1962, 1970, 1994, 2002
2. Germany (4) 1954, 1974, 1990, 2014
3. Italy (4) 1934, 1938, 1982, 2006
4. Argentina (2) 1978, 1986
5. Uruguay (2) 1930, 1950
6. France (1) 1998
7. England (1) 1966
8. Spain (1) 2010
The squad who wear the bold yellow and green Brazil football shirt are the most successful team in the Fifa World Cup history to date, with five victories. The holders Germany, who won in Brazil 2014, are close behind with four successes, can they equal Brazil’s record in 2018? Italy was the first team to win successive tournaments taking the trophy in both 1934 and 1938. Since then only Brazil have achieved consecutive wins in 1958 and 1962. Will the Germany football shirts feature five stars following 2018? Only time will tell, but whether you are rooting for a previous winner or hoping for a first time Champion wearing your team’s soccer jersey is a must.
