India to host FIFA Under 17 Women's World Cup in 2020

FIFA mulls proposal for 24-team Club World Cup; Concacaf would get 3 slots

The 2026 World Cup, which will be by the United States, Canada and Mexico, will be 48 teams, but FIFA President Gianni Infantino wants to expand the next edition of the tournament.

"We hope all the greatest teams will participate", Infantino said.

Das said that the venues to host the mega event will be decided soon.

In 2021, Federation Internationale de Football Association envisages the window for global matches - which is likely to include 2022 World Cup qualifiers - running May 31-June 8. "If it doesn't happen, fantastic also", said Infantino.

Qatar would not be forced to share games with Bahrain, Saudi Arabia or the United Arab Emirates unless diplomatic relations improve. Like the men's under-17 World Cup, the women's edition, too, has to be held in October and November.

Infantino said five members of the Council did not attend the meeting, the first for FIFA's leadership in the US since American law enforcement arrested numerous sport's top officials in 2015 on corruption charges.

"We will move to the next stage, we will explore the possibility of who could potentially be hosting some of the Games in the Gulf regions", Infantino said.

European clubs have publicly resisted FIFA's bid to replace the current seven-team annual Club World Cup, which is played annually in December, with an expanded quadrennial version in June-July.

He said these tankers can no longer be insured by global companies and are likely to be insured by Iranian firms. It is believed that more than 15 Iranian tankers are coming up to 20 years old.

Infantino added that club football was "evolving at a different pace in different parts of the world" and it was Fifa's duty to put on an "exciting, prestigious and inclusive competition, and we'll have that with this Club World Cup, starting in 2021".

The announcement comes in the face of considerable opposition from European clubs.

The letter, viewed by the AP, was signed by top executives from 14 leading European clubs, including ECA head Andrea Agnelli of Juventus.

"We have been open to the process of discussing a potential expansion of the World Cup in 2022 to 48 teams since discussions started in Moscow and continued in Kigali", read the statement.

Barcelona President Josep Bartomeu backs a revamp of the competition, just not until the entire calendar for club and national team matches is reconfigured for 2024 and beyond to cope.

"But it was our responsibility to take a decision because we have to deal with the organisational matters - it is only two years away".

VAR, which made its debut at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, will now be deployed for the women's tournament which kicks off in June in France.
