FIFA World Cup is a competition in the area of association football (soccer) which is held every 4 years. It has been played like this since the initial tournament in 1930, since then it was skipped only two times in 1940s because of war period. It is a widely viewed and attended event with high publicity which gathers people from passionate football fans to casual viewers to ones who happen to follow current top world-class events. Each World Cup is preceded by a stretch of time used to decide which teams are promoted to the final tournament. This qualification process lasts two to three years and leads to determination of 32 teams allowed to play the main World Cup games. Each conference (i.e. one of six regional FIFA subdivisions) has its own qualification rules or format, with some conferences having just one round of matches while other can have as many as five rounds followed by intercontinental play-offs. The qualified teams will then play in Russia from 14 June to 15 July 2018 at multiple venues. As usual the first phase will be played in eight groups then succeeded by the knockout phase leading to the grand final scheduled in Moscow. The organizing body is FIFA which stands for "Fédération Internationale de Football Association" or "International Federation of Association Football" in English. The World Cup Trophy and the title of winner and runner-up are not the only awards which can be won in the competition. Other awards for players and teams include The Golden Ball, The Golden Boot, The Golden Glove Award, The Best Young Player Award, The FIFA Fair Play Trophy, The Most Entertaining Team.
