The World Cup is the most popular sporting event in the world, with fans spending millions of dollars on the tournament each year.
Its popularity has soared since the end of the Cold War, and the Olympics in 2020 are expected to become the most watched sporting event on the planet.
But what happened in 1995?
The World Cup was originally called the Euro Championship.
That was because the European nations were divided into two groups.
The first, the ‘Big Four’, were the UK, France, Germany and Italy.
The second, the smaller ‘Little Four’, comprised Spain, Portugal, Croatia and Slovenia.
The format was a knockout tournament, with each team eliminated on a first-round tiebreaker, and a quarter-final match between the teams that finished on top of the group.
The World cup was played between July 11 and July 19, but the game was cancelled because of a coronavirus outbreak.
The organisers had to cancel the competition for the coronaviruses because the outbreak had spread throughout the tournament.
The final game was also cancelled, because of the outbreak.
On July 13, the outbreak started in Europe, and it was declared a pandemic in the UK and France.
The BBC announced on July 14 that the games would be cancelled, but organisers had postponed the games until August 21.
On the day of the games, the organisers announced that the tournament would be played in a semi-final, and they had to reschedule because of high numbers of people returning to the UK for the tournament, and because of work to re-establish public health measures in the country.
On August 18, the BBC announced that all matches would be postponed.
The World cup itself was rescheduled to be played between September 4 and September 19, 2019.
But then the tournament was cancelled.
On September 13, a second coronaviral outbreak hit Europe, which meant that the World Cup had to be reschedulated.
The Euro Championships had already been cancelled and the World cup had to go ahead as scheduled.
The games were reschedulnted in October 2019.
On November 11, the first games of the 2022 World Cup were played, and again the World championship was rescheuled to take place between December 3 and January 10, 2023.
The 2022 World championship, which was initially scheduled for September 2, was reschuled for December 1, 2021.
It is not known whether any of the four major tournaments will take place in 2023, as the World and Euro Championships have already been reschedulted.
