Headlines
It looks increasingly likely that the FIFA Council will approve the expansion of the World Cup to 48 teams when they vote on the matter on Tuesday. The 16 groups of three teams format that Gianni Infantino proposed would get the most new nations involved and, most importantly, provide the most extra revenue. The only thing said to possibly hold up the vote would be a determination on how the 16 new slots would be allocated between the confederations. If all works out, bidding for the hosting rights to the 2026 tournament could begin within days.
