The financial possibilities encourage soccer directors and the International Football Federation (Fifa) to consider a biennial World Cup. A study presented this Monday (20) at a meeting between the world’s top football officials indicates that the change in the calendar would yield up to R$ 92 million every four years for each national federation linked to FIFA, according to Reuters.
With 700 pages, the survey also states that, if held every two years, the World Cup would raise U$ 4.4 billion more for FIFA. The international federation held a “global summit” with federation representatives to debate the proposal, but no vote was scheduled.

There is a FIFA congress scheduled for March 31, 2022, in Doha (Qatar), host of the next World Cup. The governing body of football is mainly trying to convince Uefa (European federation) and Conmebol (South American federation), against the biennial World Cup.
“If it opened voting, the majority would probably vote for the Cup every two years. But that’s not the idea: we’ve analyzed the calendar completely and how to improve football, what to do to create a way to organize the future of the sport”, said Gianni Infantino, FIFA president.
The extra money to the federations would come from a Solidarity Fund for FIFA Associate Members, which would distribute $3.5 billion to national federations.
“We face opposition, but I fear that 90% is due to emotion and not analysis of the facts. We have to overcome this fear, much of the emotion comes from fear”, said former FIFA coach and director of Global Football Development, Arsene Wenger.
