FIFA to hold an important meeting for planning the World Cup

Mon 20 September 2021 | 12:35

FIFA's controversial program has drawn much opposition.

The members of the FIFA Technical Committee will hold a meeting in a few days to conclude the World Cup project every two years.

Arsene Wenger, FIFA's director of football development, is pushing for the World Cup to be held two years apart and is working to get the project done. However, there has been much opposition to the plan. To date, UEFA and CONMEBOL have both rubbished the suggestions due to scheduling concerns.

FIFA plans to meet with members of its various committees to conclude the World Cup every two years. Their statement reads:

"There is a broad consensus within the game that the International Match Calendar should be reformed and improved," FIFA's statement on Monday said.

"Following invitations to stakeholders, including all confederations, at the beginning of September, discussions are being organised in the coming weeks.

"This is one of several opportunities to establish a constructive and open debate, at a global and regional level, over the coming months and FIFA is looking forward to it.

"As this is a football project, in which the global interests of football should come first, this process started with players and coaches from all over the world. The debate will also involve fans from around the globe.

"FIFA is committed to being a forum for meaningful debate by engaging with a wide range of stakeholders including fans and looks forward to discussions on the sustainable growth of football in all regions of the world, at all levels."

The meeting is scheduled to take place online on September 30 for members to comment on the controversial plan.
