The only thing wrong with the current format is that it needs an extra rest day between each round so that player fatigue does not become an issue.  The changes that FIFA has proposed are ridiculous.

This GRONKZZ has a point.

It's not the number of teams for me.. it's the horrible format.

Groups of 3... penalty shoot outs for draws. It's like an American parody of the game.

Bring back Sep... fuck me.
They should add this in while they are at it..

I'm beginning to understand how the cricket traditionalists feel.

...and China and India STILL won't qualify.

Not entirely against this however, weaker footballing regions will never improve if they never get to play the top teams.

It's pretty stupid to change the WC format, it's even more stupid to change the rules, have you guys seen the suggestions of marco van basten?

Van Basten's ideas for the future of football

Scrap extra-time and go straight to penalties in cup games
Give players eight seconds to run at the goal from 25 metres instead of the traditional penalty
Abolish the offside rule
Play four quarters, rather than two halves
More substitutions
Limit players to five fouls, like in basketball
Limit the number of games a player can play each year

It was reported on mirror.co.uk and a couple of other news sites.
Football is a game of mistakes. Whoever makes the fewest mistakes wins. -Johan Cruyff

According to Van Basten's social media, it's his job to find out what people like and dont like.
Forever Sydney.

Co-hosting with up to FOUR countries sharing the load is now being considered.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino said on Thursday he intends to encourage co-hosting for the 2026 soccer World Cup that could divide the tournament up between as many as four countries.

“We will encourage co-hosting for the World Cup because we need FIFA to show we are reasonable and we have to think about sustainability long-term,” Infantino said.

“(We could) ...maybe bring together two, three, four countries who can jointly present a project with three, four, five stadiums each. We will certainly encourage it. Ideally the countries will be close to each other.”

Stupid idea. They could make it a real World Cup and hold matches on each continent with the final to be played somewhere on the Bosphorus.
