EFL and Premier League condemn World Cup idea every two years

The governing bodies of English football, the Premier League and the English Football League, have issued a joint statement condemning the idea of ​​a World Cup being played every two years. The pair are part of the European Leagues group, which also includes La Liga, Bundesliga and Ligue 1.

The idea of ​​increasing the regularity of the FIFA tournament is the brainchild of former Arsenal boss and now head of world football development at FIFA Arsene Wenger.

The Frenchman believes that fans will appreciate a World Cup final that is held more regularly, which would increase the chances of seeing some of the smaller nations in a major tournament. Similarly, based on Wenger’s ideas, international playoff breaks would be eliminated during the season, with teams playing them all at once during October.

This would certainly please fans who tend to view international breaks as disturbing and boring during hectic soccer league schedules.

However, it has received widespread condemnation.

European football stands with UEFA

In a joint statement, European football said:

“The leagues have firmly and unanimously opposed any proposal to host the FIFA World Cup every two years.

“The leagues will work together with other stakeholders to prevent soccer governing bodies from making unilateral decisions that harm national soccer, which is the foundation of our industry and of utmost importance to clubs, players and fans in Europe and the world. .

“New competitions, renewed competitions or expanded competitions for club football and national teams both on a continental and global level are not the solutions to the current problems of our game in an already congested schedule.

“The football calendar definitely requires the agreement of all stakeholders and can only be the result of a fine balance between club football and national teams and between national and international club football.”

They are following in the footsteps of UEFA, which earlier this week condemned the idea.

Does this leave the plan for additional World Cups dead and buried?
