Title: History of FIFA World Cup

History of FIFA World Cup
  • Popular Culture of Football

  • FIFA formed as early as May 21, 1904 in Paris,
    but no national competition except for Olympics
  • As the highest football authority, FIFA made its
    claim as the organizers of the competition
  • 1920s French football administrators,
    including Jules Rimet, are credited with bringing
    together the worlds strongest national teams to
    compete for a world championship of football.
  • Decided that 1930 would be the first
    international competition for the what was being
    called the World Cup and La Coupe de Monde
  • Much debate as to who would host first World Cup
  • FIFA felt it necessary for the first host nation
    to pay for travel expenses of all referees and
    national teams a clearly expensive proposition,
    but many European and South American nations
    showed interest the likes of football
    powerhouses Italy, Spain, Holland, Hungary,
    Sweden and Uruguay

  • Uruguay - First Host of World Cup
  • In Uruguays 100th Year of Independence the world
    of football sounded Uruguay Here We Come
  • 13 original teams invited
  • 4 European teams, 8 South American teams and a
    United States representative
  • Originally only 1 European team had signed up,
    but the efforts of Rimet helped move three more
    nations to the competition

  • Europeans arrived in early July, 1930 after a
    long and harsh crossing of the Atlantic by ship
  • The world of football believed the European would
    not fare well vs. the South American clubs, but
    the European held their own and played at the
    highest levels leading to some victories and
    close defeats

First World Cup Championship
  • Centenario Stadium was the setting for the first
    championship to be played between South American
    teams Argentina and host Uruguay in front of a
    capacity crowd of 100,000 spectators

  • After a hard fought comeback from a 2-1 deficit
    in the first half of play, Uruguay topped
    Argentina 4-2 as the final whistle sounded to
    become the first world championships and first
    winners of the Jules Rimet trophy
  • Celebrations in Montevideo continued for days and
    footballs international competition had been
  • Jules Rimet Cup 1930-1970

  • Italy was chosen as the second host of the World
  • 32 teams competed, forcing a preliminary
    qualifying round to cut the field down to 16
  • Of these teams, only few were South American and
    defending world champions Uruguay chose to
    compete to defend their title

  • Grueling play, day after day took a toll on teams
  • 3 and maybe 4 games could be played on
    consecutive days
  • None of the South American teams qualified for
    the round of 16 and a European champ was to be
  • The final was to be played between another host
    Italy and Czechoslovakia

  • Czechoslovakia struck first late in the game with
    only minutes remaining, but an equalizing goal
    was scored by the Italians moments following to
    tie the score and send the game into extra time
  • In extra time, Italy regained the efforts of its
    injured impact player Meazza (pictured top left)
    who assisted on the go ahead goal to award the
    Italians their World Championship

  • France chosen as third host
  • Many nations kept away from competition due to
    consequences of upcoming World War examples
    include Spain, Austria, Argentina and once again
  • For the first time the host nation was automatic
    qualifier, a privilege that has carried on up to
    present World Cup play

  • Brazil was only South American team to make
    journey to France and put on one of the most
    memorable performances
  • Host France was first host nation not to win
  • Semi-final game of Brazil vs. Italy was the
    final before the event
  • Questionable coaching moves on the part of the
    Brazilians cost them their ticket to the final
    resulting in Italys return to the final game vs.
    Hungary who easily defeated Sweden in the other
    Semi-final game

Final in France
  • Italy defeated Hungary 4-2 in the final to make
    the Squadra Azurra the first two-time champions
    and make Italys mark as a powerhouse in the
    world of football

    wait another 12 years for a new champion to be
    crowned due to the threat of World War

Brazil 1950
  • Throughout the Second World War the Italian
    Vice-President of FIFA, Dr. Ottorino Barassi, hid
    the FIFA World Cup trophy in a shoe-box under his
    bed and thus saved it from falling into the hands
    of occupying troops. It was back in 1950 and
    hosted by Brazil.

The planets biggest stadium
  • Football in Brazil had become so popular that it
    was decided to build a brand new stadium with a
    capacity of 220,000 in the suburbs of Rio de
    Janeiro to host this world cup.
  • Host Brazil qualified with three other teams,
    Spain, Uruguay and Sweden, not for the
    semi-finals, but for a final series of matches in
    round robin format, in which England and Italy
    were surprising absentees.
