Nordic federations firmly oppose the biannual World Cup

The federations of Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands firmly oppose the World Cup being held every two years and assured that if the majority of FIFA decides to do so “they will consider other actions and scenarios closer to their core values ​​than the current proposal. “

The six Nordic federations expressed this way in a statement, in which they affirmed that since the FIFA congress approved in May to address its viability, the body has tried to engage former players to support its idea and that they have not yet participated in the dialogue on changes that “must be made with agreements between the parties involved and not in a hurry.”

His rejection of the FIFA project is due to the impact it will have on competitions such as the Eurocup and the Women’s World Cup, which would be left out of the public and the media, as it may make it impossible to continue with its current model of national tournaments and matches of the national teams.

“We cannot expect clubs to release players for the biannual FIFA World Cups if the match schedule is not agreed upon by those who must adhere to it. This will cannibalize the smooth running of the tournaments: the men’s and women’s Euro Cups will become obsolete if they are introduced. the unnecessary biannual FIFA World Cups, “they said.

The six Nordic federations insisted that they work for a healthy development of football in their countries and the rest of the world and also that they will do so with “constructive amendments so that football may prosper more in other regions”, although “this should not be at the expense of a successful development in Europe “.
