"Fifa can expand the world CUP from 32 to 48 teams. "
"Now the Swedish football association filed a protest against the proposal."
"– We think it is completely wrong and is very critical, " says secretary-general Håkan Sjöstrand."
"the Fifa president Gianni Infantino has since a time back, planned, and campaigned to expand the number of teams in the world CUP of 2022 in Qatar. From 32 teams to 48. During the Fifa congress in June, it will be voted on a possible extension. But not everyone is impressed by Infantinos plans."
"the League has spoken"
"the Swedish football association has decided to officially protest against the plans. During a Fifa meeting in Marrakech, Morocco in mid-January expressed as brommapojkarna lost its strong criticism. "
"– We have voiced their criticism. The issue was discussed there at a meeting and then, we stated our views."
"An expansion of the world CUP with all 16 teams would mean that more of the countries in the region, such as saudi Arabia and the United arab Emirates, would need to help with the event. A sensitive question, given that the countries currently insyltade in a diplomatic crisis. The federation is especially critical of a possible expansion given the difficult situation for migrantarbetarna in the countries of the region."
" We have been in Qatar. Where is there still some small form of change in direction where you are trying to improve (the situation of migrant workers), even if it takes a long time. The other countries have not even made the little positive movement. So therefore, we think that this proposal is completely wrong and we are very critical."
"”We think that it is completely wrong”"
"do you Think that it's even possible to extend the championship with so many teams?"
"– It is obvious that you can not have so many teams in Qatar. It will not go. In this case, the neighboring countries in the region to help."
"Why was it important to mark against the motion?"
"– basically, are we critical of the fact that the championship is decided first in Russia and then Qatar. But now they have the decisions been taken and the situation we. We have chosen to engage us in the questions (concerning, for example, migrantarbetares rights) in order to see in which way we can affect. Then we do not want to expand the championships to countries that are not at all showing any form of improvement. We think this is completely wrong, and therefore we would like to show where we stand. "
