The World Cup is the most popular sporting event in the world. It has taken place every 4 years since 1930 (except for 1942 and 1946 due to the world war)and lasts an entire month. This year it will have over a billion worldwide viewers. Countries from every corner of the globe send teams with the hopes of winning the $31 million prize and the coveted trophy (surprisingly not a cup).The World Cup is organized and run by FIFA, the International Federation of Association Football (French: Fédération Internationale de Football Association)which is based in Zurich, Switzerland. The tournament currently has 32 teams that are vying for the title.

They were the first host team to win since Italy in 1934. We celebrate their achievement with a shirt in the team’s famous red color, with a jersey-style graphic on the back that represents the year they won.
