World Cup to have 48 teams?

Quote:
FIFA is expected to decide in January whether they will expand the World Cup from a 32-team tournament to as many as 48 countries.
Gianni Infantino, elected to the post in February to replace Sepp Blatter, said the governing FIFA Council had been “rather positive” in a meeting Thursday about a possible expansion. “The level of quality of football is increasing all over the world,” he said. A vote will be taken when the council meets again in Zurich in January, he said.

Infantino pledged during his campaign for the presidency to expand the World Cup to 40 nations, but he suggested in a speech in Colombia this month that the number rise to 48.

Infantino’s desire to “optimize” the structure of the World Cup was part of his vision for a so-called FIFA 2.0 plan that was unveiled Thursday by the organization, which has spent much of the last six years mired in scandal.

I have a feeling this will go through.

If it becomes 8 groups of 6 ... maybe ... if 12 groups, we will end up with so many shitty games and I hate 3 teams advancing from a group ...

Guess Israel will finally make a World Cup but it's gonna make most of the WC unwatchable. At least you'll get the extra nations happy for those 3 matches.

No business works like that. This is a business and they want to make money.

Nahhh.. At this stage they should just never move on from the qualifiers. The qualifying groups become the "World Cup groups" - 3 qualify automatically in Europe, every team from South-America, Aussies, U.S. and Canada (out of pity) too, and from there on we'll have some twisted knock-out stage.

The playoff stage matches should be held at places like La Paz, Qatar, Barranquilla and Sillamäe for a change to make the matters even more interesting.

This way The World Cup will truly become a year in year out thing.
