Does someone know, how long there is something like a football or soccer World Cup and the European Championship?

And how many world championships and European Championships have been held so far?

At some point, there must indeed have been the first time.

The first football World Cup was held in Uruguay in 1930. The World Cup 2018 in Russia was the 21st World Cup so far. Because of the Second World War, there was no World Cup in 1942 and 1946.

The first European championships took place 30 years later 1960 in France. Since then, we had 16 European championships so far (all 4 years) - the last 2020 (2021) all around Europe.
