Woohoo!!! Where are all the soccer fans at?
FIFA announced plans to expand the World Cup to 48 teams, adding 16 extra nations to the 2026 tournament that will likely be held in North America.The decision was unanimously approved yesterday by the FIFA council. It calls for 16 three-team groups, with the top two advancing to a round of 32 teams. The FIFA president promises this move will make the World Cup bigger. FIFA predicts that having 80 matches instead of 64 will increase income by about $1 billion for broadcasting contracts, sponsor deals, and ticket sales.
The World Cup always brings everyone together and we feel this is a great idea!
