Wereldbeker gastlanden

Graphic News

June 14-July 15, 2018 -- Het Wereldbekertoernooi in Rusland begint op 14 juni. Zes landen hebben de Wereldbeker gewonnen op eigen bodem. Frankrijk was het laatste gastland dat deze prestatie verrichtte, in 1998. Aanvoerder Didier Deschamps hief in Parijs de trofee nadat Les Blues in de finale Brazilië met 3-0 had verslagen.

The tournament has been staged 11 times in Europe, five times in South America, three times in North or Central America, and once each in Africa and Asia. Asia will host for a second time when Qatar stages the 2022 World Cup.

Since the first World Cup in 1950, which was hosted and won by Uruguay, only South American or European teams have gone on to lift the trophy.

Brazil are the only team from South America to have won a World Cup on European soil, in Sweden in 1958.

Germany achieved the same feat in Brazil in 2014, breaking a streak of four successive victories for South American teams in their own continent.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
