a way to put billions of more dollars in their pocket expanding the FIFA World Cup™ to a 48-team competition as of the 2026 edition.
World football’s supervisory and strategic body held its third meeting at the Home of FIFA in Zurich on 9 and 10 January, and decided on a new tournament format with the 48 national teams split into 16 groups of three. The top two teams from each group will then advance to a 32-team knockout stage. – FIFA
