    The world cup is played every 4 years, in a different country that is chosen by a committee the same away as in the Olympic Games.

    But there is another tournaments in between.

    no, if u mean the actual cup, its been changed a while ago, but they used it for a long time now. it a good design.

    if u mean the world cup game, then a country is selected every 4 years to host the world cup. they take votes i think. but not everyone can vote, cus that way china wil win for sure.
