Already in 2017, FIFA announced that it will expand the world championship from 32 to 48 in 2026, but FIFA president Gianni Infantino recently said that FIFA will work with Qatar to explore the possibility of extending the 2022 World Cup to 48 teams. Currently, 90% of board members have decided to support expansion, which means that the Qatar World Cup will add a new host country, but more discussions and decisions will be held in June. The World Cup plan to expand the military has been mixed, one believes that the World Cup award will be further weakened, and other games are also fueled by players, while others believe that it will further expand football. FIFA revenue will also increase global influence, and a specific allocation following the extension to 48 teams has been officially announced.
As the first World Cup in the winter (November 21 to December 18), the Qatar World Cup is destined to go back to history in 2022 and whether this event will increase to 48 teams, please pay attention to our Follow-Up Report.
