Description

Held every four years, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) World Cup is possibly the world's most popular sporting event, with billions of fans tuning in. FIFA held the first competition in 1930 in Uruguay, but after only three contests, it put the event on hiatus for 12 years due to World War II. Reestablished in 1958, the World Cup was held exclusively in Europe and the Americas until 2002, when Korea and Japan were chosen to co-host the finals.

 Held every four years, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) World Cup is possibly the world's most popular sporting event, with billions of fans tuning in. FIFA held the first competition in 1930 in Uruguay, but after only three contests, it put the event on hiatus for 12 years due to World War II. Reestablished in 1958, the World Cup was held exclusively in Europe and the Americas until 2002, when Korea and Japan were chosen to cohost the finals.

 In 2014, Brazil will be the home of the 17th World Cup. The nation possesses the most number of World Cup wins, with five titles. Prior to the concluding matches, soccer teams from more than 200 countries compete over the four years between Cups in order to obtain rankings. Subsequently, FIFA conducts qualifying matches where teams from six regions determine who earns a spot in the World Cup.

 As Senior Vice President and Executive Producer of Event Production with ESPN, Jed Drake oversees the broadcasting of numerous sporting events. In 2010, Drake's coverage of the World Cup in Johannesburg, South Africa, garnered him interviews with the Washington Post, NPR, and other periodicals.
