FIFA are not relenting with plans to implement its proposed plan to host the FIFA World Cup every two years as against the usual four years. The plan was proposed and led by former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger who is FIFA's director of global football development.

The plan has received opposition from players, managers and even confederations with UEFA the leading antagonist to the plan. Regardless of the opposition to the plans, FIFA are pushing forward with the plan and will meet the managers of the national team in a teleconference.

Arsene Wenger will be in a meeting with the head coaches of the 211 member nations except one, the Three Lions manager Gareth Southgate will not be in the meeting. Football Association chief executive Mark Bullingham will attend the meeting instead to discuss on the proposal of biennial World Cup.

"As a coach of the men's national teams, their input is essential. Opportunities for us to come together are few and far between, but we must embrace these occasions as such dialogue helps us all to protect the unique place that football has in the world and to make it truly global." Arsene Wenger said of the importance of the meeting.
