Important Information About the FIFA World Cup Russia 2018
Every year a country is chosen to host the world cup by a kind of voting held by the FIFA. The countries nominated in this voting must be qualified enough to host the World Cup, which means it must be ready financially and economically to recognize everything about the event.
Thus, most of the host countries invest billions into the infrastructure necessary to host the games, and building the stadiums, hotels, and transportation.
The event is basically held every four years, except during World War II, the competition consists of international sectional tournaments leading to a final elimination event made up of 32 national teams.
Unlike Olympic football, World Cup teams are not limited to players of a certain age or amateur status, so the competition serves more nearly as a contest between the world’s best players.
This year, the lucky host country is Russia, and the matches will be held in 12 Russian cities and the event is set to begin on June 14 and will conclude on July 15 with the final game played that day to crown the winner.
The total number of teams is 32 teams that will play at the World Cup finals- five from Asia, five from Africa, three from North and Central America and the Caribbean, five from South America and 14 from Europe.
