Infantino says the World Cup will spread hosting and equal wealth each year – Soccer Sports

October 19 – FIFA President Gianni Infantino continues to play the drums for the biennial World Cup. This time he promoted the idea at a press conference in Buenos Aires, arguing that the proposal would help keep the money more equitable and away from a few supermarkets. club.

Infantino explained that the FIFA plan envisions a global showpiece that alternates between men’s and women’s competitions each year.

The World Cup is FIFA’s main source of income, and FIFA’s global development director Arsene Wenger, who drives the biennial proposal, claims it’s not just money, but Infantino has financial considerations. Clarified that it is the majority of the equation.

“Today, there are many football tournaments that make far more money than the World Cup, and the money they make is distributed to a very small number of clubs,” Infantino said at the Argentine Football Association (AFA) headquarters. He spoke at the press conference.

The biennial World Cup project has received intense criticism, especially from UEFA and Commebol. However, Infantino is determined to promote this idea and states that the final decision will be made “by December.”

“No one is happy with the current situation and needs to change something,” Infantino added, conveniently ignoring the fact that the opposite is true. And every two years I oppose the World Cup.

Infantino wants to not only increase the number of World Cup tournaments, but also the number of co-organizers.

“Talking about the World Cup every year, men and women from five neighboring countries will be able to host the World Cup in nearly 100 countries in 20 years, giving a big boost to football.

“Currently, the World Cup hasn’t returned to the continent for 24 years, so it’s more than a generation.”

So far, the only World Cup hosted by multiple countries was when Japan and South Korea teamed up in 2002, but Canada, Mexico and the United States will jointly stage 2026.

Infantino also addressed the World Cup qualifiers between Brazil and Argentina in São Paulo last month. Brazilian health officials broke into the pitch and had to stop the match because four Argentine players claimed to have violated quarantine rules.

“It’s unlikely that a match will be interrupted in this way. It’s unacceptable,” Infantino said.

“It’s always good to decide on the pitch, not off the pitch. It’s not always possible. There are rules. Let’s see what the FIFA disciplinary action decides.”
