Federation Internationale de Football Association recommends expanding Qatar 2022 to 48 teams

India To Host 2020 FIFA U-17 Women

India will host the U-17 Women's World Cup in 2020

England head coach Phil Neville has previously said he is concerned about the standard of refereeing at the World Cup, adding it was "important" that VAR was introduced to women's football. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because public statements on this topic were not authorised.

"What is clear is that if we were to increase to 48 teams, and we will decide this in June, then some games would have to be hosted by some neighboring countries of Qatar".

But Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the UAE would only be candidates if their governments ended a diplomatic blockade of Qatar launched in 2017, the study said.

As a result, due to their "neutrality" in the situation, Kuwait and Oman are the most likely options to co-host games at the 2022 World Cup.

"We will move to the next stage, we will explore the possibility of who could potentially be hosting some of the Games in the Gulf regions", Infantino said. The boycotting nations also have pointed to Qatar's close relationship with Iran. Like Europe and South America, Concacaf have had one representative annually, with the Club World Cup customarily hosted in Asia.

AIFF general secretary Kushal Das had confirmed the development to the Indian Express and said, "We want to bid for the under-17 women's world cup and wanted to understand the procedure".

"It has always been our mission to ensure that this World Cup belongs to the entire Arab World and the Middle East", the organisers said.

A document sent to the FIFA Council says its members will be asked if they agree with the report's conclusion that World Cup expansion is "feasible provided that neighboring countries host some matches". "After these consultations, the final decision will be made by Qatar and Federation Internationale de Football Association".

The Club World Cup is now held every December and features seven teams from six confederations, but the competition is largely ignored by European fans.

The stark message was handed to UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin from the European Club Association, which represents 232 of the continent's leading teams, and was sent via email on Tuesday, three days before the crucial meeting in Miami on Friday.

"The world will now see a real Club World Cup, where fans will see the best teams in the world compete to be crowned the real world champions", he added. "We want to have an exciting competition, we want to have a prestigious competition, we want to have an inclusive competition and we will have this in the new Club World Cup starting in 2021". "UEFA supports the views of its stakeholders and has the duty to protect the health of players". The Club World Cup would be held from 17 June to 4 July, while the African Cup of Nations and CONCACAF Gold Cup could be played from 5-31 July. European club seasons typically start around mid-August.
