WORLD CUP 2022 – A Beginners Guide

World Cup trophy

The World Cup 2022 in soccer is a competition among the men’s senior national soccer teams held every four years and organized by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA). A total of 32 teams (set to be increased to 48 for the 2026 competition) compete to be crowned the FIFA World Cup champions. Since its inception in 1930, 1942 and 1946 were the only times it did not hold due to the Second World War.

It’s common to see the offshore sports betting favorites coming from the region where the tournament is held, however, this year sees the competition held in Qatar. There’s never been an Asian winner of the tournament and there’s not expected to be this time, while the hosts are seen as rank outsiders to even make it out of their group.

World Cup 2022 Qualification

Each of FIFA’s six confederations determines and manages its qualification system with tournaments held within the period before the next competition in their various continents. The six continental zones are Africa, Asia, Europe, North and Central America, and the Caribbean, Oceania, and South America. The host nation usually qualifies automatically. As of 2022, Brazil is the only nation to qualify for all the competitions since it commenced.

Trophy

The trophy is not to be given permanently to the eventual winner of the competition. The winner is to hold on to it and be awarded a golden replica after the post-match celebration, though Brazil was entitled to keep it in 1970 after winning it the third time. A new trophy, awarded to the 1974 winners, was stolen in 1983 and was never found. It is believed to have been melted by the thieves.

Conclusion

The world cup is a competition every player dreams of winning in a lifetime, but only a few have those dreams become a reality. It is the most reputable soccer tournament in the world and one of the most expensive trophies in the history of the sport, with a monetary value of $ 20 million. The 2026 world cup estimated cumulative viewers of 26.29 billion and 715 million people watching the final match is still an unmatched record in sports history.
