has previously said European countries could boycott the World Cup if the changes were introduced, and on Friday UEFA reiterates their stance against FIFA’s plans for a two-year World Cup.
“FIFA’s plans for a two-year World Cup will be blocked by UEFA and CONMEBOL even if they receive the support of most of the football associations,”
“The proposals would damage all forms of football and devalue the competition itself. This concept has all the characteristics of a decision that FIFA wants to take quickly and let the rest of the football world regret it bitterly.
“UEFA will continue to oppose until common sense prevails and the plans are abandoned.”
