Lots Of Changes In Latest FIFA Rankings Announced

FIFA reportedly sets up a meeting with top football agents to discuss ways to reform the practices of intermediaries.

The document gave no sign of the £ 25 billion investors featured. Infantino reportedly explained his lack of candor on the matter by saying he had committed to a non-disclosure agreement.

CONMEBOL, South America's football confederation, has implored FIFA to increase the number of nations competing at the 2022 World Cup from 32 to 48. Even amid the escalating tensions, Qatar World Cup organising committee secretary general Hassan al-Thawadi did not rule out past year the possibility of sharing matches with neighbors.

A group of investors from Saudi Arabia, China, the USA and the United Arab Emirates have guaranteed revenues of $US25 billion a year, the FT, said, while Japan's Softbank is also involved.

What about the Nations League?

UEFA already organizes the globally popular Champions League and any rival club competition could be a threat to its broadcast sales worldwide.

The Task Force was initially set to make a recommendation to FIFA's ruling Council before any decision on whether or not the bids can proceed was made.

Federation Internationale de Football Association is likely to explore broadcasting deals with video streaming services and could bypass traditional television networks that hold World Cup rights. The organization's financial reserves are said to have dwindled from $1.5 billion just after the 2014 World Cup to $900 million now. Infantino delivered that information verbally. It also would provide a strong platform for Infantino to run for re-election next year.
