An online summit on the international match calendar will take place on Sept. 30, FIFA announced on Monday.
FIFA’s proposal to hold World Cup finals every two instead of every four years has drawn criticism in Europe.
UEFA chief Aleksander Ceferin has threatened a boycott and the German Football Federation has also expressed unhappiness.
New England women’s coach Sarina Wiegman also came out against biennial World Cups on Monday.
“I think it’s not very good for the players, for their welfare. In Europe it’s very well organised, we have very good competitions, we have the Euros, then you have the Olympics, then you have the World Cup,” she was quoted as saying.
“Where are they going to recover from a very intense football year every year? Players are not robots. So, I don’t think it’s a very good idea.”
Other areas of the world are keener on the plan and FIFA put out a fan poll showing support for the idea, although different statistics within the survey suggested otherwise.(dpa/NAN)
