1 FACT BOOK Use these interesting facts and figures from around the world and the world of soccer to help inspire your soccer season.

2 1954 SWITZERLAND First European Post War World Cup. The 1954 World Cup was held in Switzerland. As the year 1954 was the 50th anniversary of FIFA, they chose to play the event in the country where it is based. For the first time qualification matches were actually played in South America. In all previous World Cups the South American teams all qualified automatically. The 1954 World Cup was the only time a team was eliminated by coin toss. After Spain and Turkey failed to determine a winner after their tiebreaker match, a birth in the knockout stages was decided via a coin toss. The fifth World Cup saw the 4th format change; the 16 teams were divided into four groups: each group comprised two of the eight seeded teams based on world rankings plus two unseeded teams. Two teams qualified from each group but the seeded teams did not play each other unless a playoff match was required. West Germany defeated Hungary 3 2 in the final dubbed The Miracle of Bern. The Hungarians were considered the greatest national team to ever play, they had a 32 game winning streak coming into the Final and had beaten Germany 8-3 in a first round match. Germany s victory is considered one of the greatest upsets in World Cup history. The German team was made up of amateur players as Germany did not have a professional league at this time. This is the only time a team has won the World Cup with amateur footballers and will likely be the only time ever. In 26 matches of the 1954 World Cup, an average of 5.38 goals per game were scored, this is STILL the highest average of any World Cup in history. The smallest city to ever host a World Cup Final was Berne, 1954, at Wankdorf Stadium. Page 2
