Watch: The18's Teamwork Challenge Event Presented by National Peanut Board

Imagine kicking soccer balls at an 18-foot-tall dart board, dodging giant exercise balls while dribbling through a maze of cones, a catapult launching soccer balls from 40 yards away and shooting through seemingly peanut-sized targets. Daunting, sure, but add in a teammate and it becomes an exhilarating afternoon of cooperation. 

How Are The World Cup Groups Determined?

Qualification games started in 2019 for all 6 of the confederations around the world.

Each confederation is designated a certain amount of slots for teams to qualify. 

AFC (Asia): 4 or 5

CAF (Africa): 5

CONCACAF (North/Central America & Caribbean): 3 or 4

CONMEBOL (South America): 4 or 5

OFC (Oceania): 0 or 1

UEFA (Europe): 13

The 32 teams that qualify, are then placed into 4 pots based on their FIFA ranking.

The top 7 teams plus the host are placed in pot 1.
