There is no other event in the world that attracts as much attention as the football World Cup. The popularity of this tournament attracts billions of spectators every four years. But what was it like in the beginning? How did this tournament come into being and who were the people who created it?

On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the first World Cup, Wydoks Media is shooting a 4-part documentary about an event, which began curiously and ended furiously. The myth of the Football World Cup is originated in South America, where the first part of the series begins. It’s the untold story about of the first World Cup in Uruguay in 1930.
