Premier League and EFL has voiced out their opposition to biennial FIFA World Cup

The Premier League and the EFL have expressed their opposition to a FIFA World Cup every two years.

The leagues are members of the European Leagues group, which describes itself as “the voice of Professional Football Leagues across Europe on all matters of common interest”.

World governing body FIFA are currently exploring changing the international match calendar so there are major tournaments every summer and fewer qualifying games during the year.

But on Thursday morning European Leagues said they “firmly and unanimously opposed” any such plan.

The statement read: “The leagues have firmly and unanimously opposed any proposals to organise the FIFA World Cup every two years.

“The leagues will work together with the other stakeholders to prevent football governing bodies to take unilateral decisions that will harm domestic football which is the foundation of our industry and of utmost importance for clubs, players and fans across Europe and the world.

“New competitions, revamped competitions or expanded competitions for club and national team football both at continental level and/or at global level are not the solutions to the current problems of our game in an already congested calendar.

“The football calendar definitely requires the agreement of all stakeholders and can only be the result of a subtle balance between club and national team football and between domestic and international club football.”
