Doha The FIFA president said he was excited on Friday at the proposal of the French Football Federation to hold the Women’s World Cup every two years
“We need to see what kind of important events we can create, so we will certainly study this one,” said Gianni Infantino regarding the modification of the tournament, which is currently held every four years.
Infantino stressed that competing every two years would have an “incredible impact on the development of the game” compared to tournaments held at club level.
FIFA had decided in advance to expand the Women’s World Cup from 24 to 32 teams and double the prize, although it maintains a significant economic gap in terms of the money it uses to finance the men’s tournament.
The Americans are the current two-time champions to take the contest in 2015 and again in July this year in France.
The 37-member FIFA Council is scheduled to choose the venue for the next 2023 Women’s World Cup through a vote in June 2020. Four candidates compete for the tournament: Brazil, Colombia, Japan, and a joint proposal from Australia and New Zeeland
