Won't happen due to the Euro. And now that the League of Nations is there, really no chance.

The euro could easily shift years either one ahead or behind to accommodate for this

Also the league of nations is the Carabao Cup of int football, nice to have but at the end of the day no one really cares

Yeah but there are massive media deals that have many years left for UEFA to ever agree to this...  too much money for them.  No way UEFA gives up the money to FIFA.

Other issue is FIFA and Euro qualifying... it can't work if a tournament happens every summer.

FIFA doesn't have the power to implement this. Non starter.

It could take effect whenever this is done. And besides the world cup money will be much bigger. Dont think that should be an impediment.

It's not just Euros that would be affected but also Afcon, Asian Cup, Gold Cup and Copa America. Basically all the regional competitions. The WC every 4 years is perfect for the other competitions to actually be fielded with competitive squads and more importantly, to get the best media deals it can possibly get.

Essentially, bad idea FIFA, focus on more prevalent matters for once nah.

FIFA makes the world cup money, not UEFA.

Also, it's a power issue. No way UEFA concedes this much power to FIFA.

Clubs would like protest (very very hard) too and UEFA is already facing a potential rogue "league of champions" because the top clubs are angry about too many NT meaningless games.

It really can't go anywhere. Money, politics, scheduling, media deals, etc... literally everything is against the idea. At least with the League of Nations, you were replacing friendlies, not official competitions. You're asking official major competitions to move in this case. No way.

Infantino is a *bleep*. He is after more money with complete disregard to the quality of football. I predict more and more injuries and a declining quality of football due to players not being fresh at all. But of course as humans, until it blows in our faces, we don't care. Gimme more money... :coffee:

The whole 48 teams is so there are more matches to be aired hence more money from selling the TV licenses. And of course shit footballing nations would vote always for it. They would vote for 100 teams if given the opportunity.
