Initials of
Fédération Internationale de Football Associations,
the world governing body for the sport of football (soccer).
FIFA is the ultimate arbiter for the rules of the game, ensuring that
the same set of regulations are adhered to by the national
football associations of each country. Given that football is the
world's most popular sport, followed by over 75% of the people on
this planet, it's important that everyone agrees on rules and
FIFA's biggest event occurs every four years in the World Cup finals.
