Infantino once again defends  the modification of the calendar to celebrate a World Cup every two years
The FIFA president once again defended the modification of the calendar to celebrate a World Cup every two years instead of every four in his last institutional visit to Israel. Infantino explained his idea like that:”Many critics say it would be detrimental, but FIFA studies assure that it would not diminish the magic of the tournament because its frequency would not affect its quality and reputation.”
The ambitious revolution plans in Infantino’s mind not only includes The time lapse between World Cup and World Cup,but also on how many teams can take part in the event.Currently, 32 teams participate in the World Cup, from France 1998,but Infantino hopes that it can be more and more. “We have already decided that there will be a World Cup with 48 teams starting in 2026. If it will take place for two or four years, it is still in the consultation phase. Precisely because it is a magical tournament, it would have to be held more frequently, “he added. 
When drawing a conclusion for his opinion, the president of FIFA took the finals of NFL,which is usually called  Super Bowl by the fans of American football as an example.”The reputation of an event depends on its quality, not on the frequency. Every year you have a Super Bowl, Wimbledon or the Champions League and everyone is excited and waiting,” he concluded.
