After his tireless efforts, Rimet was able to nominate a special committee from the FIFA organization concerned with studying the possibility of holding a world championship in football in 1926 AD, and at its meeting held in the year 1928 AD in Amsterdam, the FIFA organization voted by a majority of its members to hold a world championship for football once every four years, and in the following year it was agreed that the first tournament would be held in the year 1930 AD in the state of Uruguay; Which was the Olympic soccer champion over the years 1924 AD to 1928 AD, and Uruguay had made an offer to pay all travel and accommodation costs for the teams that will compete for this world championship.
