The first FIFA World Cup was held in 1930 in which nation?
FIFA had been planning a World Cup as far back as 1904, when the organization declared its authority to host an international soccer championship. The first World Cup was a far cry from today’s competitions: Only 13 countries participated, and all matches were held in Montevideo, the host nation’s capital. With the exception of the war-torn 1940s, FIFA has held a global tournament every four years since.
The correct answer is Uruguay.
