European clubs say will boycott FIFA's Club World Cup

European clubs say will boycott FIFA's Club World Cup

But he has been forced to drop the Nations League plan before Friday's meeting of the FIFA Council in Miami, after his own task force said there is no space for such a tournament in the global calendar. Infantino's push to expand the 2022 edition is being forced on hosts Qatar and will require significant changes to its plan.

It will replace the Confederations Cup on the Federation Internationale de Football Association calendar. "If it doesn't happen - fantastic also".

Oman, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and United Arab Emirates were named as potential co-hosts, though the latter three countries would only be allowed to do so on the proviso their governments end their on-going diplomatic blockade of Qatar.

"We came to conclusion, yes it's feasible to move from 32 to 48 teams at the World Cup provided certain conditions are met".

"We know the current form doesn't work", FIFA Vice President Victor Montagliani told the AP. "So we'll move to the next stage and look at who could host these games, and then congress can take the final decision".

The two biggest governing bodies in world football, meanwhile, are on a collision course after FIDA approved plans for an expanded Club World Cup from June 2021.

The letter, viewed by the AP, was signed by top executives from 14 leading European clubs, including ECA head Andrea Agnelli of Juventus.

Opportunity rover left us with one last beautiful panorama of Mars
NASA's Opportunity Rover took one last stunning image of Mars's landscape, before losing touch with it after 15 years last month. This storm-which blanketed the entire planet-caused NASA to lose contact with the solar-powered rover.

And after hearing Infantino's announcement on Friday, the ECA issued a statement saying its clubs would not participate in 2021.

'Club football is evolving at a different pace in different parts of the world and we want to have an exciting, prestigious and inclusive competition, and we'll have that with this Club World Cup, starting in 2021. European club seasons typically start around mid-August.

"Now the world will see a real Club World Cup where fans will see the best teams in the world compete to be crowned the real world champions", he said.

Barcelona President Josep Bartomeu backs a revamp of the competition, just not until the entire calendar for club and national team matches is reconfigured for 2024 and beyond to cope. "We have held some positive, constructive discussions and will continue with this vein".

"I am always happy but especially today because we have taken some important decisions".

Video review has been approved for the Women's World Cup, which runs from June 7 to July 7.

He added that VAR will be used in the tournament, "the same as we did for the men's World Cup".
