What is the Football (Soccer) World Cup ? (2937 words)
The World Cup final tournament, which has been held every four years since 1930, except in 1942 and 1946, when it was cancelled due to World War II, is the most widely-viewed and followed sporting event in the world, exceeding even the Olympic Games.
The issues facing the early World Cup tournaments were travel (for teams outside the continent of the host nations), and war, with the 1942 and 1946 editions being cancelled due to World War II.
At the end of each World Cup final tournament, several awards are presented to the players and teams which have distinguished themselves from the rest in different aspects of the game.
