After the expansion of the world cup final stage to 48 teams, and the introduction of the Nations League in Europe is there now concrete created even a new competition format.

Because the European football body, UEFA succeeded in its intent to the other five continental organizations (Asia, Africa, South America, North and Central America, as well as Oceania) behind to rally for the creation of a Global Nations League.

Also the wereldvoetbalbond FIFA, which, therefore, must fear for the status of his world CHAMPIONSHIP finals, would apparently capitulated and gone along to get on. The German quality newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine confirmed the FIFA that all “in a collaborative atmosphere’ and thought about next steps for the modern football’.


This mini-world cup, starting in 2021 biennial would take place, re-fresh, to generate income. On the schedule is a final tournament with eight teams, for a week, according to a knock-in model, section model would be played by all participants.

After this season via the UEFA launched the Nations League will undoubtedly be the discussion on the load of the internationals from the best football leagues in Europe continue to be tightened. Because the calendar is already packed, which makes for little rest periods and increase the chance of (severe) injuries in the real valves.

Attitude clubs?

The European football association showed the european CHAMPIONSHIP 2016 in France with a record number of 24 instead of 16 landenploegen dispute, which the economy of the organizing country of 1.2 billion euro turnover. The participating teams gave together to 34.9 million euros, the sponsors were good for 22.6 million euro.
