Football is known as “the World Game” for a reason. It is growing exponentially and is not threatened by any other sport. Basketball, cricket, Rugby Union, NFL, and tennis can not even compare to the sporting power that soccer has developed over the years. In fact, there are many regions in the world where football approaches religious status. It is an integral part of the lives of its subscribers and those with the skill to play good football are revered by their peers.

While the World Cup as we know it is considered the World Cup Finals, most people view it as a tournament unto itself. However, over 200 nations and FIFA affiliates vie for entry into the World Cup final via years of qualification games and series. Only 32 nations can enter the World Cup finals tournament, and those are considered to be at the top of the game.

Due to its massive popularity and billions of fans in every corner of the world, the World Cup is a wildly popular gambling option.

The World Cup final draws the largest amount of wagers of any game at the World Cup, and is widely viewed around the world. Money outlaid on World Cup final bets can run into the billions of dollars.
