The 2014 FIFA World Cup is the 20th FIFA World Cup, a tournament for the men's football world championship, which is currently taking place in Brazil.

It began on 12 June, with a group stage, and is scheduled to conclude on 13 July with the final. It is the second time that Brazil has hosted the competition, the first being in 1950. Brazil was elected unchallenged as host nation in 2007 after the international football federation, FIFA, decreed that the tournament would be staged in South America for the first time since 1978 in Argentina, and the fifth time overall.

The national teams of 31 countries advanced through qualification competitions that began in June 2011 to participate with the host nation Brazil in the final tournament. A total of 64 matches are being played in 12 cities across Brazil in either new or redeveloped stadiums. For the first time at a World Cup finals, match officials are using goal-line technology, as well as vanishing foam for free kicks.

All world champion teams since the first World Cup in 1930 – Argentina, Brazil, England, France, Germany (who won three times as West Germany), Italy, Spain and Uruguay – have qualified for this competition. Spain were the title holders, having defeated the Netherlands 1–0 in the 2010 final to win their first World Cup but they were eliminated after losses in the first two matches at the group stage against the Netherlands and Chile along with former Champions Italy. In the final between two former champions England and Germany, England won the title by defeating Germany 2–0 , thus becoming the first European team to win a World Cup in the Americas.

Despite the hosts Brazil finishing in the last four, their tournament was overshadowed by their record-shattering 7–1 loss to eventual runners-up, Germany, in the semi-finals. Argentina suffered a similar defeat going down 6–0 to eventual champions England.
