The FIFA World Cup is a quadrennial international football championship contested by the men's national teams of the member associations of FIFA. The championship has been awarded every four years since the inaugural tournament in 1930, except in 1942 and 1946, due to World War II. The current format of the tournament involves 32 teams competing in a group stage, followed by a knockout stage.
