Won't happen due to the Euro. And now that the League of Nations is there, really no chance.

The euro could easily shift years either one ahead or behind to accommodate for this

Also the league of nations is the Carabao Cup of int football, nice to have but at the end of the day no one really cares

Yeah but there are massive media deals that have many years left for UEFA to ever agree to this...  too much money for them.  No way UEFA gives up the money to FIFA.

Other issue is FIFA and Euro qualifying... it can't work if a tournament happens every summer.

FIFA doesn't have the power to implement this. Non starter.

It could take effect whenever this is done. And besides the world cup money will be much bigger. Dont think that should be an impediment.

It's not just Euros that would be affected but also Afcon, Asian Cup, Gold Cup and Copa America. Basically all the regional competitions. The WC every 4 years is perfect for the other competitions to actually be fielded with competitive squads and more importantly, to get the best media deals it can possibly get.

Essentially, bad idea FIFA, focus on more prevalent matters for once nah.

FIFA makes the world cup money, not UEFA.

Also, it's a power issue. No way UEFA concedes this much power to FIFA.

Clubs would like protest (very very hard) too and UEFA is already facing a potential rogue "league of champions" because the top clubs are angry about too many NT meaningless games.

It really can't go anywhere. Money, politics, scheduling, media deals, etc... literally everything is against the idea. At least with the League of Nations, you were replacing friendlies, not official competitions. You're asking official major competitions to move in this case. No way.

Infantino is a *bleep*. He is after more money with complete disregard to the quality of football. I predict more and more injuries and a declining quality of football due to players not being fresh at all. But of course as humans, until it blows in our faces, we don't care. Gimme more money... :coffee:

The whole 48 teams is so there are more matches to be aired hence more money from selling the TV licenses. And of course shit footballing nations would vote always for it. They would vote for 100 teams if given the opportunity.

Against it surely.

If World Cup becomes a (almost) ordinary tournament it loses his magical effect

The "football is in crisis" narrative is starting to get on my nerves

Covid gets the blame but cry me a fucking river

In last 10 years there is so big increase of cash flow in the game due to throwing money by the window and increasing importance of sponsors. Now the curve is flattening and all the rich are panicking. Totally against reform of World Cup, 48 teams was already a strong coffee for me to drink.

As usual with Fifa, what the fans like has no importance. I read a report about this scum Infantino, he backed the SuperLeague project, went silent in the first days of outrage, and only started talking once the plug was pulled.

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/20/sports/soccer/super-league-fifa-infantino.html i did not read this article, i try a link in english, there is paywall but you can see the first lines very quick

Now you guys have a taste of Infantino.


I cannot stress enough how much Infantino is the shining definition of what Fifa is. Usually those old white mewling Swiss/German/Belgian types on stage who make awkward jokes to lighten up the silence during a UEFA draw to changes in the game literally NO ONE asks for to posing as if they are doing so for the good for the game whereas its just for money in their pockets.


Infantino is a gutless dweeb who's possibly worse than Blatter who at least was entertaining in his own way.

The man also is a bit injured emotionally from what the Super League posed against FIFA and how they refused to include his guidance or support and he defines how much of in need FIFA is not of a politician but a player who knows the game, actually played it and isn't just about lining his own pocket with money.

Doesnt help with FIFA lapdogs like that insufferable goof Pele backs this image up.

Good god. Between the Super League, the 1 million team European competitions, the 1 million team world cup... and now a world cup every two years.

So many things trying to destroy football. But the sport has always survived. Players really need a union though. They can't play 100 games a year and no break.

I stand by this statement 2/3 years later.

Also, the logistics for a WC to be held every two years is stuff of nightmares and bankruptcy. Not to mention the mental and physical strain this would have on the players. Seriously, even machines breakdown.

the football calendar allows for a proper spread-out for qualifying games to enter a world cup. one every two years is a burnout for players who have to participate in continental cups and also have qualifiers for those continental cups. two years is ridiculous; the aura of the world cup comes with the gap and the difficulty in winning. more importantly, players are not robots

also, any plans to shift to every two years seems like a strategic move....my theory, fifa sees what the ucl has become, and if a two year move goes through, their next course of action would be to make it a yearly competition.....unlike the club football, there's no player movement, which is a big part of club football success

Before long, it's going to be an yearly event. FIFA is trying to emulate a money-spinner like the Champions League.
