Hi,
"Held since 1958 alternately in Europe and the Americas, the World Cup broke new ground with the Executive Committee’s decision in May 1996 to select Korea and Japan as co-host for the 2002 edition."
Does “alternately” mean the World Cup was held first in Europe and then in America?
Thanks

    For me it's not clear which location was first, although if I needed to decide I'd choose the order given, so Europe and then America. But what alternately means is just that one year it is held in Europe, the next year in America, the year after that in Europe, then America etc. etc.
