The FIFA World Cup - 2006
 
The FIFA World Cup is popularly known as the World Cup and also known as Football World Cup or Soccer World Cup and it is the most popular competition in international football. No other sporting event captures the world's imagination like the FIFA World Cup.
 
The championship has been contested every four years since the first tournament in 1930, except in 1942 and 1946 due to World War II.

A group of visionary French football administrators, led in the 1920s by the innovative Jules Rimet, are credited with the original idea of bringing the world's strongest national football teams together to compete for the title of World Champions. The original gold trophy was in the name of Jules Rimet's . From 1930 to 1970, the Jules Rimet Trophy was awarded to the Cup winner.

It is more of an ongoing event as the qualifying rounds of the competition take place over the three years preceding the final rounds.
