FIFA's shock World Cup proposal that could see major overhaul of competition

FIFA is considering staging the World Cup every two years rather than every four.


Alejandro Dominguez, the president of Conmebol, South American football’s governing body, submitted a proposal for a biennial World Cup at the FIFA congress in Rwanda last month.

He confirmed his move in Argentina on Friday and will press the game’s global overlord Gianni Infantino to continue to give the matter serious thought.

Dominguez said: “The proposal we have made to FIFA is to play the World Cup every two years and not every four.

“Instead of having the Nations League in between we can just go ahead every two years and have a World Cup, and that is for everyone.

“It’s for the players, because they could play four World Cups if we move to a two-year cycle.

“If we stay with this format many players will not be able to play more than two.

“There are many solutions. We could hold the tournament in Europe, South America, North America, Africa and Asia without such a long wait.

“So we see an opportunity there and there is a proposal put forward to FIFA.”
Paraguayan Dominguez is not against the expansion of the new UEFA Nations League format to include teams from South America.

While UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin is keen to involve those countries in the tournament as well in the future.
But Dominguez believes a biennial World Cup is the best option.

He added: “In terms of economics FIFA make money and give more money.”
