If the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is a lot of talk, FIFA has managed the feat of attracting even more criticism by offering a World Cup every two years. A very contested idea. And for those who advocate the argument of scarcity so as not to touch the regulatory four years, here is Gianni Infantino’s answer.
“We have already decided that there will be a World Cup with 48 caps from 2026. The plan to organize this every two years is only at the consultation stage. It is precisely because it is a magic tournament that it must be organized frequently. The reputation of an event depends on its quality, not on its frequency. Every year you have a Super Bowl, Wimbledon or the Champions League and all the people are waiting for these events ”, he said in remarks relayed by Marca.
