This football championship has continued since inception for every four years except in 1942 and 1942 because of the world cup. However, it has been like an on-going event because of the qualifying rounds that are staged in each continent to select the countries that will represent the continent on the world scene. These qualifier series are spread within the three years of the break between two world cups.

At the finals of the tournament, only 32 national teams will compete for the world cup over a period of four weeks while being camped at the selected country to host the event. This large representation has made this football game the sporting event that is most widely-viewed in the world.

Dating back to the days when the football game was rarely played anywhere else but Great Britain, the first international football live match was between Scotland and England in 1872. With increased popularity, the round leather game was staged as a demonstration sport (without medals) at 1906, 1904, and 1900 Summer Olympics.
