FIFA president strengthened plans for Women’s World Cup

To make the sport expand by separating it from the men’s play, FIFA president Gianni Infantino has strengthened plans to hold the Women’s World Cup every two years.

The Women’s World Cup actually follows the same period as the men’s tournament. 

It usually falls on odd years and after the men’s tournament is held the year after.

The FIFA president reiterated the proposals at the FIFA annual congress after being met with initial skepticism, although Infantino first announced that the international governing body of football was considering moving the women’s tournament to every two years in December 2019.

“Last year we saw the most beautiful Women’s World Cup in history,” said Infantino according to The Guardian. “With 260 million viewers more people watched the final than the Superbowl. Technically and tactically, it was a feast for the eyes.”

“But [to grow the game further] we don’t want to copy what the men are doing. We want something specific for the women’s game. We need to think about different suggestions.”

“Finals between confederations, [finals] on a continental level every two years, maybe even a World Cup every two years rather than four. To have a Club World Cup for the women’s game. We need to think about it, we need to get those creative juices flowing.”
