Much has been said these days about the various projects that FIFA wants to carry out. The main one, of course, the idea of modifying the calendar and playing a World Cup every two years instead of every four, arguing that it would be more attractive for the sport. The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), for its part, does not agree and will seek to promote other proposals.

As reported by Gazzetta dello Sport, it is about holding the World Cup every four years and, in between, holding a Global Nations League, with the same format as the European competition, but including teams from other parts of the world and with a focus. main in South America. In this way, the tournament -with final eight- could be played between four teams from Europe and four from South America.

And it would not be the only thing that UEFA intends to carry out. In relation to its own Nations League, the entity chaired by Aleksander Čeferin would seek to fulfill an old desire for its next edition, which has to do with the presence of Argentina and Brazil, as guests, something that it could not achieve in the first two editions - Portugal and France were champions respectively.

While Gianni Infantino, FIFA president, announced the postponement of the vote regarding the biennial World Cup and called a summit for next December 20, UEFA and Conmebol, for their part, will inaugurate a cooperation office at the beginning of November in London, where they will have representatives from both continental organizations and these issues will be debated.
