Get Ready For the Biggest Sporting Event of
There are a lot of exciting sports events that happen in the world. They're a great way to get away
from the stress of everyday life and have some fun.
The World Cup 2023 is one of those events. It’s going to be a big deal for fans all around the
The host country and venues for the tournament
The world’s most-watched sporting event, the FIFA World Cup, is set to take place in 2023. The
tournament is held every four years and features the best international teams competing against
The next tournament is scheduled to be held in the United States and Mexico, marking the first
time that three countries will co-host it. It will also be the first to feature 48 teams, with groups
of four competing for the title.
The host country of the tournament is decided by FIFA, and smaller or less developed countries
may find it difficult to meet the criteria for hosting. It involves a process that includes a series of
virtual workshops, one-to-one meetings and an in-depth analysis of the stadiums and
Teams competing in the World Cup 2023
Across 10 stadiums in Australia and New Zealand, the World Cup 2023 will feature 29 teams
that have qualified through their respective confederations. The remaining three spots are up for
grabs during the inter-confederation play-offs taking place in February.
The draw was done on Monday, and there are a lot of exciting matches to look forward to in the
2023 tournament. Some of the most interesting groups include Sweden (world No. 2) and
England, the two teams that won last year's European Championship.
Colombia, meanwhile, is an up-and-coming team that has seen growth under new head coach
Alen Stajcic. Their experience against CONMEBOL rivals and friendly matches against Costa
Rica will help the Malditas prepare for their first World Cup.
Key matches to watch out for in the group stages
The World Cup has already produced a thrilling mix of steamrolls, upsets and dramatic goals.
But it's now time for the knockout stage to begin, and a thrilling bracket of Goliaths and Davids
will take on each other until just one remains undefeated.
Group E has been particularly exciting with Germany handed a lifeline thanks to Japan's 7-0
thrashing of Costa Rica, who are bottom on a single point. If Germany beat Costa Rica and Spain
defeat Japan, Die Mannschaft will qualify for the playoffs.
Morocco, meanwhile, have a chance to make history as the first African team to finish third in a
World Cup. But it may be a tough road ahead against an upstart Spain team.
Potential upsets and dark horses of the tournament
Every major football tournament has at least one team that has the ability to turn heads and
spring up surprises in the most unlikely of situations. This phenomenon is referred to as the dark
horse, and it has been seen throughout the history of the World Cup.
For example, South Korea shocked the world in 2002 with a 1-0 victory over Poland as they
began their campaign, while Senegal upset France in their first game in 2002.
On paper, Switzerland appear to be a strong contender as a potential dark horse at the World
Cup. They boast a solid defence, a gritty battling midfield and some attacking threats. They also
have plenty of experience in international competitions and are no pushovers.
The impact of the pandemic on the World Cup 2023
Throughout human history, pandemics have struck periodically with outbreaks of disease that
spread rapidly and affect a large number of people. The infamous 1918 influenza pandemic
killed an estimated 20 million to 100 million people, and smaller flu epidemics in 1957 and 1968
claimed more than 1 million lives worldwide (Morens and others 2010).
In contrast to seasonal flu, which typically disproportionately affects older populations,
pandemics often disproportionately harm younger populations because they have low immunity.
In addition, many infectious diseases have chronic effects that can be difficult to treat and may
have lasting consequences for health and well-being.
As FIFA and WHO prepare to host the World Cup in Qatar next year, they’re launching a new
multiyear collaboration to make the event a model for healthy and safe mega-sporting events.
They’re also aiming to translate these best practices for use at future mega-sporting events.
