UEFA president Aleksandr Ceferin wrote a letter to FSE (Football Supporters Europe) which is a fan group, the contents of the letter reported by Reuters said, “UEFA and its national associations… have serious reservations and grave concerns surrounding reports of FIFA’s plans.”
Former Arsenal manager and now FIFA’s chief of global football development has been one of the key figures who has been pushing for the FIFA World Cup to be conducted every two years. He also said this would provide, “more clarity for clubs and fewer problems for the national teams.”
UEFA will be looking towards a PR campaign to oppose the plan of the World Cup being conducted every two years.
Reuters also reported that FIFA conducted a global consultation with the fans, the international football governing body has no objectives and is only acting for the betterment of the sport.
The plan of the tournament being conducted every two years was approved in May by FIFA after a request by the Saudi Arabia Football Federation. It is said that if the tournament is conducted every two years, it will provide a better opportunity for countries like Saudi Arabia to host the World Cup.
