Increase in the 2022 world Cup and club world Cup : Why Gianni Infantino, Fifa tournaments increased

Gianni Infantino will allow his colleagues to wait. If the Supreme body of Fifa, of the Council, comes this Friday at a luxury hotel in Miami, received the President of the world football Association late on the currently most discussed Fifa-themes. According to the meeting agenda, the Council is concerned, according to numerous Status Reports from all the Fifa-Committee under agenda item six and nine with Infantinos two main projects: the enlargement of the club world Cup from seven to 24 teams, as well as a possible increase in the 2022 world Cup from 32 to 48 participants and organisers in addition to Qatar.

Both seems to have Infantino behind-the-Scenes with a lot of force so far ahead that he can count on the consent. The Swiss has apparently prevailed in the Power struggle with the Europeans His arguments for more money and more places for all confederations were for the officials from all over the world, probably too tempting.

The Fifa must now Co-hosts for Qatar found

Officially, Infantino argues for a ' 48 world Cup in three years, a feasibility study commissioned by Fifa. This comes to the surprising conclusion that the bloated world Cup would of course be possible. However, only if Qatar is sharing the tournament with other host countries. On the other hand had resisted the Qataris, so far, because with its neighboring countries, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates, you are in a fierce political dispute. Although Infantino would prefer Saudi Arabia as a Co-host – from there, sponsors ' deals wave to him and Fifa apparently immense – he's now in Oman and Kuwait as another host for the 2022 world Cup into the game. Both apply in the political Blockade Qatar by Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and UAE as the neutral States. And both could contribute to a stadium for the world Cup, what would the rich, according to a Fifa study, in addition to the eight stadiums in Qatar, probably for a 48-tournament.

the Last had been particularly the European football associations against Infantinos projects. Among all the competition, and plans for expansion of the 48-Year-old they wanted to prevent, especially the so – called Global Nations League because the Uefa understands the global counterpart as a competitor to their own Nations League. This project, which is in connection with the ominous 25-billion-Dollar deal with a Japanese consortium with apparently Saudi financiers to Fifa, is now probably off the table. With a major championship already in 2022, four years later, the tournament will be held in the United States, Mexico and Canada anyway with 48 teams – and also a much larger club world Cup every two or four years, the Europeans can now live, however, obvious.

The European Council representatives will meet this Thursday in Miami to vote. To the statements of the DFB President Reinhard Grindel, also a member of the Board, is now hear that the Europeans would not stand against a ' 48-WM. "A world Cup is the dream of many countries in the world. Therefore, I can understand that many associations want Fifa the 48 Format,“ said Grindel, the German press Agency. The tournament should not take longer than the previously planned 28 days, said the 57-Year-old. So it all boils down now to the following procedure: The Council will bring this Friday, the 48 world Cup for 2022 as far as the way that the Fifa Congress on may 3. June may decide on the increase.

more specifically, the new club world Cup. The Council members are expected to rubber-stamp the in Miami, this will be held in the inflated Format, with 24 Clubs for the first Time in the summer of 2021 instead of the previous confederations Cups. How many teams from Europe and the other confederations to participate, not sure yet. However, Grindel stressed that it was positive that "the money is in the cycle of football" to stay. Like this, of course, all of the officials. And, therefore, Infantino is pushing ahead with its plans to perk up.
