If you are referring to the FIFA World Cup, there wasn't one due to be held in 1940. The World Cup is held every 4 years. The last one had been in 1938, so the next would have been in 1942, not 1940. The 1942 and 1946 World Cups were not held due to World War II. No host had been chosen for the 1942 World Cup, though Argentina, Germany and Brazil had put in bids. There were no bids at all for 1946 as it was definitely not going to happen. The next World Cup was in 1950 in Brazil.
