Once more Fifa considers more ways to rake in the moolah as they go to vote (Tuesday, 17th) to expand the World Cup to 48 countries. I think it is already to unwieldy and goes on for too long as it is but you can bet your last brown envelope they will push it through under the guise of "getting football back to grass roots."*
Still, it gives me an opportunity to post up a picture of Germany winning so that makes me happy.
*Having read through the article now, they are saying that the World Cup has to be "more inclusive" and that expansion will also benefit "the development of football all over the world".
Despite saying "the decision should not just be financially driven", Infantino did highlight the possible financial upsides.
According to Fifa's own research, revenue is predicted to increase to £5.29 billion for a 48-team tournament, giving a potential profit rise of £521million.
