Top women’s leagues & UEFA Against FIFA biennial World Cup Plans


FIFA’s plans for a biennial World Cup would have a “profoundly detrimental” impact on the women’s game and fundamentally alter its development, Europe’s top women’s leagues and European governing body canada pharmacy viagra UEFA said on Monday.

In a joint statement, the organisations criticised the consultation process FIFA employed while conducting a feasibility study into holding the men’s and women’s World Cup on a biennial basis.

The organisations also expressed concerns about the tournament adding to an already congested international calendar, hampering the visibility of women’s soccer and resulting in players being overworked.
