However the Membership World Cup will not be the one occasion FIFA hopes could be accommodated within the new world calendar.
Infantino has additionally floated the concept of a 20-club “African Tremendous League” and has expressed assist for the concept of mulitnational, cross-border leagues.
Belgian golf equipment just lately voted to open talks with Dutch groups on making a joint “BeneLiga” whereas Infantino stated final month {that a} merger between Mexico’s Liga MX and Main League Soccer (MLS) can be seen positively by FIFA and will produce the most effective league on the earth.
