The World Cup is undoubtedly the biggest and most-watched event on the global sporting calendar, attracting enormous viewing figures from across the world. Held every four years, the first World Cup took place in 1930 and was won by Uruguay. Since then, the Jules Rimet trophy has been won by seven other nations: France, Germany, Argentina, England, Brazil, Italy and Spain.
The 2026 World Cup will be co-hosted by USA, Canada and Mexico and is expected to take place throughout June and July. With the previous tournament having been held in December, this is a welcome return to the traditional summer slot for the World Cup.
