FIFA to hold online summit with Associations over Biennial World Cup

Football’s world governing body FIFA will hold a meeting with its member associations over the controversial plan to hold the World Cup every two years.

An online summit on the international match calendar will take place on September 30, FIFA announced on Monday.

FIFA’s proposal to hold World Cups every two instead of every four years has drawn criticism in Europe with UEFA chief Alexander Caferin threatening a boycott and the

German Football Federation also unhappy.

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.
