World Cup Host Countries

Info by NewShower

After the question about the first world championship in football/soccer, I do not want to withhold the other venues and countries which has hosted the World Cup so far.

In the following table, I have listed all host countries of the World Cup since the first competition in 1930 until today. In addition, I have added the number of competitors as well as the winner and World Cup Champion of the corresponding year.

The World Cup was not staged in the years 1942 and 1946 because of the Second World War. For 1942, Germany or Brazil was suggested as host.

In 1974, the country Germany only refers to the Federal Republic of Germany because the German Democratic Republic was not involved in the hosting. Also the World Cup winners of the championships in 1954 and 1974 only refer to the Federal Republic of Germany.

In 1986, the World Cup should be hosted in Colombia first. In the end, Mexico took it because Columbia has canceled the games for financial reasons.
