DEBATE+ Many opinions needed+thanks

I am writing a debate for school and it is about this statement:

“The initial cause of WW1 was the assassination of Archduke Francis Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary.”

My stance is that it was a trigger but in order for my to write a debate I need peoples opinions that agree with this statement. Can you tell me why you agree thanks! Any websites would be appreciated too! Thanks!

I agree that it was a trigger but not the largest cause of the war. European nations had been spoiling for a fight with their military buildups, extreme nationalism, and strong alliances.
