FIFA are exploring the possibility of hosting the men’s and women’s World Cup every two years instead of the traditional four years. At the governing body’s annual congress, 166 votes were in favour and 22 were against the study of a possible FIFA World Cup every two years. FIFA President Gianni Infantino thinks the proposal is an “eloquent and detailed proposal”.

Now, FIFA are going to reveal the results of an expanded survey regarding the frequency of the men’s and women’s FIFA World Cups.

FIFA reveals that majority of the fans want a more frequent men’s World Cup

It has been reported that 63.7% of 30,390 people who said football was their favourite sport would like to see a more frequent men’s FIFA World Cup.

However, if the FIFA World Cup happens every two years, the European Championships and the Copa America would be in doubt as they are held every four years in the even years between World Cups.

Since the inaugural tournament in 1930, the Men’s World Cup has been held every four years, barring 1942 and 1946 because of World War Two. The women’s tournament has also taken place every four years since the first competition in 1991. So it would be a little odd to host the World Cup every two years.

The next FIFA World Cup is in 2022 which will be hosted by Qatar.
