Premier League Clubs Unanimously Oppose Proposals For Biennial World Cups

Posted by

From 2024, Premier League clubs have united in their opposition to FIFA’s ideas for biannual World Cups and longer international holidays.

The bosses of the 20 top-flight clubs met in London on Thursday, and one of the topics covered was former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger’s contentious calendar plans.

The league has spoken out against the idea, citing concerns about player health, fan experience, pre-season preparations, and competition quality.

Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said: “The Premier League is committed to preventing any radical changes to the post-2024 FIFA international match calendar that would adversely affect player welfare and threaten the competitiveness, calendar, structures and traditions of domestic football.
