Representatives of the major European football leagues at the Milan General Assembly rejected FIFA’s proposal to host the World Cup every two years. According to the association, the new concept would harm the sporting and economic power of national league competitions. The meeting was also attended by representatives of the Czech League Football Association.
“FIFA’s proposals lead, among other things, to a change in the club calendar in favor of the international and a significant shift in the sporting and economic value from the national to the international. FIFA’s proposals are damaging the leagues , clubs, players and national supporters and cannot be accepted “, on your website.
FIFA has given more information on the intention to host the championship in early September. The proposal was supported by the African confederation CAF and the Asian AFC, while UEFA, the South American confederation CONMEBOL, the fan groups and the FIFPRO players’ association are also strongly opposed to it. Recently, the International Olympic Committee also opposed it, according to which the organization of a World Cup of football would harm the diversity and the development of other sports.
European leagues bring together European competitions, including the best ones like the Bundesliga, Premier League and La Liga. The LFA has been part of the organization since 2018.
