There was also talk of the 2030 World Cup between the cup and these issues, for which there is confusion about becoming a venue along with Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and Chile.
Gianni Infantino confirmed that a vote will take place in 2024 to find out where the 2030 edition will be played, 100 years after the first World Cup in history.
Eight years after the expected sovereign event there is no South American candidacy. Spain and Portugal have already submitted a joint project to host the World Cup, raising the possibility of adding Ukraine as a show of support following the crippling war since Russia’s invasion.

In addition, there is an idea that has been little heard so far that Greece, Saudi Arabia and Egypt organize the first triangular World Cup.
Infantino considered that the 2026 World Cup – and the following ones – could be played with four-team zones, as it is today, with 32 teams.
The idea was to play the group stage in zones of three with an increase in qualified nations, but the spirit of the definition of all groups in Qatar 2022 will make FIFA reconsider the format.
