FIFA football actually had its real origin at Auschwitz

At Auschwitz Sport and Relief Camp there were numerous soccer teams. Further soccer teams were organized all over Poland which then was under German occupation. At Monowitz, Birkenau, Krakow, there were further teams.

And most football grounds were at Birkenau, some distance away from Auschwitz. Such people as Jerzy Brandhuber, Hermann Langbein, Kazimierz Smolen, Tadeusz Szymanski, Tadeusz Wasowicz, and many others, all helped in organizing the teams. This was the early organization of FIFA and the World Cup.
