History

The Zamastan National Football Team after winning the 2019 Emerald World Cup

In 1972 during the negotiations to form the Coalition of Crown Albatross, a proposal for a unified body to oversee association football became apparent with the increasing popularity of international fixtures. The World Cup Organization was founded on April 5th, 1972, with the first members including Zamastan, Quetana, Cadair, and Elbresia. The first President was Armando Luque, an East Chanchajillan footballer who was instrumental in the negotiation process to establish the structure of the organization. Membership of WCO expanded dramatically in the years immediately after its founding.
