2018 World CupEdit

In its history, the Peruvian Football Federation's men's team has been involved in continental competitions such as the Copa America, which used to be played every 2 years. In 2010, CONMEBOL changed how frequently the competition was played, now having the tournament played every 4 years in order to avoid clashes with qualifier matches for the World Cup. The FPF has also been involved in a total of 3 World Cups, their first being the 1978 World Cup in Argentina, later qualifying for the 1982 World Cup in Spain, and most recently qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. After 36 years of absence from the World Cup, Peru’s return incited the support of over 40,000 fans who traveled to Russia in order to support the Peruvian Football Federation’s men’s team. [13]These 40,000 fans alone spent over $200 million dollars in total during their one month stay in Russia.[14] Peru as a whole was later nominated for, and won, the FIFA award for best fan base of the world cup. Despite the national team failing to make it past the group stages, the passionate support of their fans aided in making Peru’s presence be truly felt.
