WMF raised the number of participants in the WMF WORLD CUP from 12 (in 2015 in the US) to 24. For the first time the representatives of all 5 continents - Africa, America, Asia, Europe and Oceania has been presented. The WMF WORLD CUP 2017 was an excellent promotion of small football in the world, increasing not only the value of small football at international, national and local levels, but also the number of new WMF membership applicants. Among the most prominent are China, Japan and Azerbaijan.
The full evaluation of the championship will be part of the WMF Annual Report 2017.
