2021 FANA World Cup

The FANA World Cup, often simply called the World Cup, is an international association football competition contested by the senior men's national teams of the members of the Football Association of Nations (FANA), the sport's global governing body. The championship has been awarded every year since the inaugural tournament in 2015. The current champion is Fordia, which won its frst title at the 2021 tournament in Namimori and Qasentria.

The current format involves a qualification phase, which takes place over the preceding three years, to determine which teams qualify for the tournament phase. In the tournament phase, 32 teams, including the automatically qualifying host nation(s), compete for the title at venues within the host nation(s) over about a month.

10 countries have hosted the World Cup. Fordia has hosted the tournament two times, in 2015 and in 2020, on the Astoniavian joint hosting, along Decoria, Dyria and Lanovina. Atlandia, Lakadamia, Levalle, Wedse, US Eldance, and a joint hosting from Namimori and Qasentria have each hosted the tournament once.
