LFP votes against biennial World Cup

Ligue 1

At its meeting on 13 October, the LFP's Board of Directors adopted a motion opposing the plan to hold the FIFA World Cup every two years.

Without prior consultation, FIFA wants to take a decision that is in its sole interest and whose impact is irreparably negative for domestic leagues and clubs as employers of players.

This project would also extend the international periods, which would greatly disrupt the domestic leagues and cause fans to lose interest.

The development of football is not only based on the World Cup but also and above all on the domestic championships. In this respect, it would be preferable for FIFA to promote the development of professional leagues where there are none, as well as local championships.

The World Cup is a world heritage event that must be preserved and not trivialised.
