The FIFA World Cup 2018 is just a few days away, 45 days to go from now.
The first FIFA World Cup match will take place on the 14th of June, and will take place at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow between Russia and Saudi Arabia.
For now, there is enough time for everyone to prepare themselves for the upcoming tournament. This includes getting to know a little bit of history of the FIFA World Cup.
In 1946, the World Cup trophy was renamed as the Jules Rimet Cup to honor the president of FIFA at that time. Seeing how the president was the primary driving force behind the creation of the tournament, this move should not come as a surprise. That being said, the first ever World Cup had it inauguration in Uruguay in 1930.
The FIFA World Cup was mostly inspired by Olympic football tournaments held between 1924 and 1928. It was Rimet’s passion and persuasion that caused 12 nations to come together for the global event that is loved and admired today.
