The beginning of the Soccer World Cup
Every four years, football teams from different countries around the world come together to compete in the Soccer World Cup.
The competition was created by the French Jules Rimet, in 1928, after taking over the command of the most important institution in world football: FIFA (Federation International Football Association).
The first edition of the World Cup was held in Uruguay in 1930. Only 16 teams participated, which were invited by FIFA, without a dispute for qualifiers, as is currently the case. The Uruguayan national team won the title and could stay for four years with the Jules Rimet cup.
In the next two cups (1934 and 1938) Italy won the title. However, between 1942 and 1946, competition was suspended due to the outbreak of World War II.
One of the names that favored the creation of the football world cup was Julis Rime t. He was FIFA's third president in the years 1921 to 1954. 토토사이트 It was under his influence, to create an international dispute, that the sport expanded even further.
To start the idea of the competition, FIFA held meetings across Europe. It was in 1928 at a conference in Amsterdam that the proposal to create the World Cup was approved. The choice of Uruguay as a country to host the games was taken in 1929, in Barcelona.
One of the reasons for choosing Uruguay as the host nation was due to the country's performance at the Olympic Games in 1924 and 1928, when they were champions. All 1930 World Cup matches were held in Montevideo.
FIFA has established that the competition must take place every four years. After the first World Cup games, in the years 1934 and 1938, other editions were held. However, due to World War II, there was no sporting event in 1942 and 1946. The world championship was only held again in 1950.
In 1930 few European clubs participated in the competition. This happened because many rejected the proposal to travel to the host nation that was Uruguay. In addition, the 1929 crisis influenced the selection of teams. Therefore, only 13 countries participated in the Soccer World Cup. Check out the selections below:
