Official Site of 2002 FIFA World Cup

The FIFA 2002 World Cup is being held in Asia for first time and is co-hosted by Korea and Japan. Previous World Cups had only one host country, so this may be the beginning of a new trend.

Each country has spent years preparing and has built some of the most incredible stadiums in the world especially for this event. A total of 20 stadiums (10 per country) will be hosting games.

Here are the 32 countries competing in the tournament. Click the name of the country to learn how to write it in Japanese. Click here to learn some soccer vocabulary.
