The European competitions will reject the idea to go to the world cup 2022 in Qatar 48 teams to take office. “We want our calendar does not change for an expansion of the world cup 2022”, explains the Swede Lars-Christer Olsson, director of the association of European leagues, and member of the Executive Committee of the European Football association (UEFA). “We have been flexible and have made it possible for the world cup in the winter the game is played.”
The world cup in Qatar in the winter of 2022 (21 november to 18 december), given the heat in the summer in the emirate. In January 2017, the Wereldvoetbalbond (FIFA) to 2026 at the world cup is not 32 but 48 countries. The South American voetbalconfederatie CONMEBOL called last week to make that decision four years earlier in the practice.
If this proposal gets there, the host member state may, however, with organizational issues to be confronted. There would be 80 instead of 64 matches are on the programme. By the enrolment in the winter is the tournament in just 28 days finished. “We are not willing to spend a longer duration to accept,” says Olsson. “The players need to rest. Not only money can decide how the football is organized.”
