FIFA To Increase World Cup Teams To 40

-

- Advertisment -

FIFA president Gianni Infantino says he is open to expanding the World Cup to 40 teams starting in 2026, with co-host duties being given to several countries.

The World Cup has not been expanded since 1994, when the tournament went from 24 teams to its current standing of 32.
The vote for hosting duties for the 2026 World Cup is set for 2020, with CONCACAF (Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football) nations like the United States and Mexico expected to bid. No CONCACAF country has hosted the World Cup since 1994, when the U.S. hosted.
“These two topics will certainly be on the table for discussion,” Infantino said.
