AFC embraces FIFA’s 2-year World Cup cycle plans

Kuala Lumpur, Sep 14: The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) on Tuesday welcomed the consultation process initiated by FIFA in exploring the options to hold the men’s and women’s World Cup every two years instead of the current four-year cycle.
World football governing body FIFA aims to optimise the new international match calendar by looking into the feasibility of a World Cup every two years instead of the current four-year interval, as mandated by the Member Associations, including the AFC.
The AFC said it applauds the spirit of partnership and strong principles of inclusivity, which FIFA’s consultative approach seeks to achieve. “As proven time and time again, most notably in these challenging times, exceptional partnerships that thrive form the foundational basis for Asian and world football not only to overcome great adversity, but also in serving as the catalyst towards creating an environment that supports dynamic innovation, invention, and collective success.” (PTI)
