The World Cup (International Cup in PES) is a competition of the world's best teams. In order to qualify, teams must be placed second or higher in their qualifying group which consists of 6 nations the only other way to qualiy it to host the tournament.

When teams reach the final they are drawn into 4 groups of 4 and then the top two from each group play in knock out rounds against each other.

In PES the qualifying phase was introduced in PES 6 on the PS2 under International challenge which true to life players would play against nations that did not appear in the game and were not playable i.e. Bolivia and Iraq, they all appeared with fake kits and player names. It then appeared in PES 2008 but the qualifiers were not on the next gen consoles. In the next gen consoles only the finals were playable.

In PES winning the International Cup will Unlock players that were before not available in the game.

The current holders of the World Cup are France. The next tournament is in 2022, in Qatar.
