Vintage FIFA World Cup Poster - Uruguay 1930

Uruguayan Victory in Inaugural World Cup

Dimensions: 24 inches x 36 inches

Won by the host nation, the 1930 World Cup in Uruguay saw Argentina and Uruguay facing off in the final.  The 4-2 Uruguay victory capped off the inaugural FIFA World Cup year and paved the way for countless years to come of World Cup action.

This year saw only a small number of European teams decide to come to the tournament. Teams were unwilling to make the grueling trip to South America.  This led Uruguay to voluntarily decline their invitation to the next games in Italy - feeling that they had been disrespected by the European community.

This poster comes to us from the official FIFA store.
