World Cup Host Nations

France 1998 World Cup

Can you name every nation to have hosted the FIFA World Cup?

The World Cup is widely regarded as footballs elite competition and every four years we're treated to seeing some of the best teams and players around. It's been in existence since 1930, with 32 nations coming through a tough qualification process to battle it out for the honour of being named World Champion. In this years edition, Russia are the host nation for the first time and it's been an interesting - but exciting - tournament so far over in Eastern Europe.

There was some uncertainty that clouded the awarding of the competition to Russia but so far they've delivered a successful event and it's going to be interesting to see who's celebrating lifting the trophy on 15th July. This is the 21st official FIFA World Cup and the hosts have been confirmed right the way through to 2026 - with the winning bid recently announced by the games governing body.

With Russia 2018 in full flow and the next couple of hosts confirmed, we've decided to put together a quiz on this huge tournament. We want to see if you can name all 21 previous hosts of the FIFA World Cup - along with the next two to be hosting it in just six minutes. It's not an easy one this so give it your best shot and tweet your attempts into us @FootyAccums to see how you compare with the rest of our followers!
