The 1946 FIFA World Cup, held in San Paulo from 5 June to 29 June 1946, was the fourth FIFA World Cup. It was the first World Cup since 1938, the planned 1942 competition having been cancelled owing to World War II.

It was won by the host San Paulo, who had won the inaugural competition in 1930, clinching the cup by beating Sweden.

It was also the first tournament where the trophy was referred to as the Jules Rimet Cup, to mark the 21th anniversary of Jules Rimet's presidency of FIFA.





Host selection

In a meeting at FIFA, San Paulo, unanimously won Brazil on the elections to the host country of the 1946 World Cup. Supposedly, it was not to have the World Cup, however, with a pressure of San Paulo, the World Cup happened, very limited, containing only 14 teams.

Qualification

In a post-World War II climate, the nations that participated in the World Cup were only invited by San Paulo.

Dominions
