World Cup 2026

Post by stattointhailand » March 16, 2023, 3:48 pm

FIFA announce that next World Cup will consist of 48 teams, up from the 32 of the last competition.

Whilst not really liking the idea, I can see why they want to do it (more money and a week longer tourny), but I would hope that if there are 48 teams getting to the finals, that will cut down the amount of qualifying rounds needed to knock team out before the finals and we can do away with some if not all the "International Breaks" that blight every season :evil:

Even with 48 teams qualifying the Jocks will still manage to cock it up :-"
