List of FIFA World Cup songs and anthems

From Wikipedia, in a visual modern way

FIFA World Cup anthems and songs[1] are tunes and songs adopted officially by FIFA (or by official broadcasters and partners selected by FIFA), to be used prior to the World Cup event and to accompany the championships during the event.[2] They are also used in advertising campaigns for the World Cup. They are used as theme music in TV broadcast and also used in advertising campaigns for the World Cup. Some songs and anthems are more popular and famous than official songs and anthems.

The chosen songs are usually multilingual and include English, the official language of the organizing country, languages of certain FIFA Partners regions and/or other languages. The main versions also result in cover versions in many other languages performed by the original or by local artists.[3]
