Gianni Infantino, president of FIFA defended the position of holding the World Cup fair every two years and not every four as is done today
The president of the FIFA Gianni Infantino considered celebrating the world Cup every two years would not affect the quality of the tournament and even indicated that large sporting events such as the Super bowl They take place every year and always manage to excite millions of followers around the world.
During his visit to Israel, Infantino took the opportunity to defend his proposal to play a World Cup every two years instead of having to wait four years and the head of the body that governs world football is sure that the fans would approve the change.
“The Super Bowl is organized every year, why not have a World Cup every two years? The reputation of an event depends on its quality, not its frequency. Every year you have a Super Bowl, Wimbledon or the Champions League and everyone is excited and waiting“, he expressed.
And I add: “Many critics say it would be detrimental, but FIFA studies assure that it would not diminish the magic of the tournament because its frequency would not affect its quality and reputation. We have already decided that there will be a World Cup with 48 teams starting in 2026. If it will take place for two or four years, it is still in the consultation phase. Precisely because it is a magical tournament, it should be held more often. “
The FIFA president will continue to visit various football federations to convince organizations to support his plan for a World Cup every two years.
