The world championship tournament is held every two years, on the odd years. The first event was held in 1936, in the city of Stuttgart. Through the 2015 World Cup, only five countries have taken the Roller Hockey World Cup: England winning two times, Portugal winning fifteen times, Spain winning sixteen times, Italy winning four times and Argentina winning five times.

Since the 2003 World Cup all events have been 16-team events, featuring a four group round-robin tournament with four teams in each group. The top two teams in each group advance to an eight team knockout final series.
