Unofficial Football World Championships

I don’t know if you are aware of the concept of the “Unofficial Football World Championships” but it’s a Football Tournament which is competed in a linear fashion. Basically like winners stays on as if it was a Boxing Belt.

It can be fully explained here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unofficial_Football_World_Championships

and not forgetting the excellent work compiled at http://www.ufwc.co.uk/

This has been worked out from the very first game of International Football (England v Scotland) and tracked there after, I picked up on it once the mighty North Korea became Champions in 2011, since then the roll of honour has looked like this:

North Korea




Costa Rica






Which brings up to present day and the fact that there is another Title Match this weekend as holders Brazil take on challengers Mexico in a Copa America warm up friendly. You can only win the title if you beat your opponent, a draw means the holder keeps the crown. A game can be won in Extra Time or Penalties.

If Brazil win this weekend they will then go on to face Honduras next week and if they get past that obstacle they will take the title to the Copa America. The title matches should come thick and fast over the next few weeks as whoever wins this match will take the title to the Copa America itself and play a minimum of 3 matches (although they could lose the title in their first game).

So the title is set to stay in South America for the foreseeable future but where will be it’s final destination? – I will track all it’s movements over the coming months here and you can follow it also. The adventure begins.
