Every four years, the world’s best footballers gather to determine who will be the winners of soccer’s most prestigious award, the World Cup.

Soccer is the most watched and most played sport in the world, enjoyed by billions of people. The last World Cup in 2002 was watched by an estimated 33 million people for almost 27 days, making it the most watched single sports event in recorded history. This may be a reason for the countless number of soccer posters available. Whether you’re looking for soccer posters of past heroes or present players, you’re bound to find a poster of your choice. I hope you enjoy my soccer posters as much as I enjoy the game!

The effects of World War II prevented the World Cup from being played in 1942 and 1946.

Elite soccer players have made the World Cup their stage and some have made their World Cup performances very memorable. Here are just a few of the more memorable players from World Cup history.
