Final decision on 48-team 2022 World Cup set for June

Fifa grants Infantino’s lucrative Club World Cup wish

The current Club World Cup has been structured on a similar scale, with club teams representing the regional champions around the world coming together to play in a short tournament.

"We will move to the next stage, we will explore the possibility of who could potentially be hosting some of the Games in the Gulf regions", Infantino said.

"I think if football can contribute to open up some doors and to make people meet and discuss with each other", Infantino said, "we will not solve all the problems of the world but maybe we'll get a little step closer in at least starting to understand each other a bit".

"But it was our responsibility to take a decision because we have to deal with the organisational matters - it is only two years away". This will increase the number of matches from 64 to 84.

The Indian women's national team is now taking part in the SAFF Women's Championship where it kicked off its campaign with a resounding 6-0 win over Maldives at the Sahid Rangashala Stadium on Wednesday.

3 reasons Rams should be thrilled over Earl Thomas leaving NFC West
But Dallas reportedly did not want to pay Thomas more than about $11 million a year. The team has made a huge splash by signing free agent safety Earl Thomas.

"We have been giving a lot of emphasis on the development of women's football in the country".

The AIFF had earlier this week announced that it meant to bid for several AFC and Federation Internationale de Football Association tournaments including the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-20 World Cup 2021 (Men's), AFC U-23 Championship 2022 (Men's), AFC Asian Cup 2022 (Women's) and the AFC Asian Cup 2027 (Men's).

Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the UAE will need to end their diplomatic blockade of Qatar launched in 2017 if they want to be involved, FIFA's feasibility study said.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino announced on Friday that the FIFA's Feasibility Study has confirmed that 2022 Qatar FIFA World Cup could feature 48 teams. What better than having a real club football, and not a competition like the one we have now.

The Club World Cup fills the slot previously reserved for the Confederations Cup, which had served as a test event in a host nation a year before the World Cup.

Trump issues first veto after rebuke of border order
The emergency declaration is being challenged in court as an unconstitutional usurpation of Congress' power of the purse. The measure ultimately passed 59-41, and Trump immediately vowed to veto.

"[We are] firmly against any potential approval of a revised CWC - no ECA clubs would take part", it said. The ECA says a decision on potential new competitions can only be made as part of an agreed framework for the global match calendar post-2024.

The announcement comes in the face of considerable opposition from European clubs. But it is hard to see how a 2021 edition could go ahead without the star attractions - Europe's top clubs.

"We hope all the greatest teams will participate", Infantino said. "We have held some positive, constructive discussions and will continue with this vein".

Besides the U-17 Women's WC, India had also expressed interest in hosting the U-20 Women's World Cup.

The World Cup is already growing to 48 teams from 2026, when the tournament will be co-hosted by the United States, Canada and Mexico.
