How time flies! the World Cup is about to kick-off again in Moscow, Russia.

The Luzhniki Stadium will host the opening game between Russia and Saudi Arabia on June 14th.

Unbelievably, eight years have passed since Frank Lampard’s controversial non ‘goal’ v Germany in Bloemfontein amid the constant din of the vuvuzela in South Africa.

Even more amazing is realising that Gazza’s tears at the Stadio delle Alpi, Turin were a mere 28 years (or 7 World Cups) ago!

With that in mind, here’s a historical look at all the official World Cup logos, posters and mascots from the inaugural 1930 tournament in Uruguay to the present day.
