FIFA World Cup

July 18, 2014

Here is a link to the complete FIFA World Cup table.

FIFA World Cup

I have collated every result from the first championships in 1930 until the most recent tournament in 2014 and put them into the table using the following formula:

x=3a+15b+8c+4d+2e+3f+g+h+(i/2)+(j/5)

where: x=number of points, a=number of World Cups qualified for, b=number of World Cup titles, c=number of times runners-up, d=number of times third place, e=number of times fourth times, f=number of match wins at the World Cup, g=number of matches drawn at the World Cup, h=number of qualifying matches won, i=number of qualifying matches drawn and j=the number of goals scored at the World Cup rounded down to nearest whole number.

I consulted the following sources when compiling the document:

http://www.fifa.com/tournaments/archive/worldcup/uruguay1930/index.html (and related article eg Sweden 1958)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIFA_World_Cup (and related articles eg-1930 FIFA World Cup ect)

You are free to use the spreadsheet for non-commercial purposes so long as you state the source ie- Stephen Bark, mystatsproject.wordpress.com

I hope to publish an analysis in the near future
