Four years later, for the next event in Qatar, the doors were kept open to increase the number of teams. In the annual meeting of the Asian Football Confidence, Infinito said that we decided to increase the number of teams participating in the World Cup in 2026 from 32 to 48. It will be possible in 2022 whether we are seeing it but it is possible.
We are talking about this with our colleagues of Qatar and our other companions of that area, and we hope that this can happen. Qatar, with a population of about 2.6 million, had acquired the right to host 2022 FIFA World Cup in 2010 and since then he is preparing for the 32 teams’ tournament. Infantino believes that the number of teams in Qatar needed to help the neighboring states of Qatar to increase the number of teams in 2022.
