The FIFA World Cup, often simply called the World Cup, is an international association football competition contested by the senior men's national teams of the members of the FΓ©dΓ©ration Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), the sport's global governing body. The championship has been awarded every four years since the inaugural tournament in 1930, except in 1942 and 1946 when it was not held because of the Second World War. The current champion is France, which won its second title at the 2018 tournament in Russia.
