UEFA will maintain rejection of the biennial World Cup

UEFA assured that “it will continue to oppose it until common sense prevails and FIFA’s plans are abandoned” for the World Cup to be played every two years, a project in which it considers that “any perceived appeal is superficial, while traps are sinister. ‘

After the six Nordic associations – Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands – today showed their strong opposition to the initiative of FIFA, a spokesman for UEFA insisted on the responsibility of FIFA so that “the burden additional for some elite players do not go ahead »to the detriment of their health and football in general.

“A biennial World Cup would harm all forms of soccer, devalue the competition itself, financially harm fans and slow the development of women’s and youth soccer around the world. There are many reasons why clubs, leagues and fans are united in their opposition, “he said.

In his words, ‘UEFA has a responsibility vis-à-vis football in Europe to ensure that this unnecessary additional burden for a few elite players does not continue to the detriment not only of their physical and mental health, but also of the game in general.

“From the idea of ​​an international single window to complete ignorance of the inevitable effects on women’s and youth competitions, this concept has all the makings of a decision that FIFA wants to make in a hurry and leave the rest of the game to regret long-term. Any perceived appeal is superficial, while the traps are sinister, “he added. EFE (HN)
