Federation Internationale de Football Association votes for new Club World Cup, Euro clubs confirm boycott

"After being presented with a thorough feasibility study on the increase of the number of teams from 32 to 48 at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, the FIFA Council acknowledged the study's conclusion that expanding the tournament to 48 teams was feasible, provided that neighbouring countries hosted some matches", FIFA said in a statement.

Should any proposal be agreed upon by FIFA and the Qatari organizers, the vote on the final decision will be taken by the FIFA Congress in Paris on June 5.

The training was to gauge whether to use the technology at the tournament, with world football's governing body approving its use at a Fifa Council meeting in Miami on Friday.

For the 2026 tournament in North America, 60 games will be held in the United States with Canada and Mexico getting 10 games each. "If it doesn't happen, fantastic also", he said in the press conference.

The three countries have imposed a land, sea and air embargo on the peninsula, in the Gulf's worst diplomatic crisis in years.

Qatar is now embroiled in a bitter diplomatic dispute with fellow Gulf states Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the UAE - meaning that the only realistic candidates to co-host the tournament are Kuwait and Oman.

ECA board members, including Manchester United's chief executive Ed Woodward, signed a letter expressing concerns, which was revealed earlier on Friday.

I was very disappointed in the result, it hurts more than anything, but it's not like we can look at the performance and say we were s**t because we weren't'.

"Our clubs won't participate in the 2021 edition of the Club World Cup", the ECA told the AP, "and we will assess participation in editions after 2024". "If the calendar is not modified, of course we can not agree".

The video assistant referee system will be used at the Women's World Cup in France this summer, Federation Internationale de Football Association has confirmed.

The Club World Cup fills the slot previously reserved for the Confederations Cup, which had served as a test event in a host nation a year before the World Cup. The confederations would decide their own qualification process.

With the tournament scheduled to take place over 28 days between November 21 and December 18, an expanded competition would need at least two more venues than the eight stadiums Qatar is building.

"We all know the situation in the region, but we are in a lucky position in football that we only have to care about football", Infantino said.

No senior women's domestic or global competitions use VAR.
