FIFA World Cup expanded to 48 teams

Started by kmk108,

Pretty happy with this from a patriotic point of view, this means if we win the Oceania Cup we qualify automatically which gives us a good chance to participate in the finals. Currently we need to win the Oceania cup and then win against the 6th placed South American side to qualify. 

From an overall competition point of view, I think the quality of the comp will certainly diminish. As per the above, the winner of the Oceania Cup, none of whom play profressionally, will qualify.

I think it's a good idea. It might not work but things need to be shaken up. World Cups and Euro Cups are boring as fuck, FIFA and UEFA need to come up with ideas. If this 48 teans WC doesnt work out then something else.

Actually adding more team making it more boring because the quality of football will diminish just watch last year euro. Yes if you are portugal,wales, iceland good for you. But as neutral fan like me, it was so damn boring. Most teams played without any clear direction how to attack, basically cagey football all tournament long

In term patriotic point of view, it is good for everybody, now more team have chances to play in WC but in term of the quality of football point of view, hopefully it will not be like last year Euro, It was so boring

Well yeah, it's possible. But what if gets better? At least FIFA is trying to shake things up.

Last WC was fine imo, plenty of goals in group stage, some interesting games, maybe the referee can be better (brazil vs colombia come to mind). Last Euro on the other hand was horrible,

We have been spoiled by UCL and EPL, there is no chance that WC/EUR will be able to match them. Players simply don't have enough time to play together in order for them to be good especially offensively and because of the knockout format teams tend to play very cagey. 

The new format has nothing to do with trying to spice the WC, it is all about money. More games mean more revenue, it is a simple as that. If they can make it 64 without really pissing off a lot of teams, they will do it.

Its all about the money -with China in mind in particular. More countries means more broadcasting revenue increasing by a few billion

It also guarantees Infantinos re election in 2019, with all the smaller countries voting for him.

With host countries needing 48 top class training facilities I expect the 2026 WC more than likely  to be in the US
