Barça, Real Madrid favor increasing number of Club World Championship participants

FIFA 18 World Cup DLC Free

At present, the Club World Championship is held every year, but exclusively the strongest clubs in the continents as well as the reigning champion of the host country compete in this tournament.

Ahead of the Europa League final in Lyon, the governing body of European football is holding a meeting of its "Council of UEFA" and FIFA president Gianni Infantino's plans are the main topic on the agenda.

According to the document, 12 of the 24 teams in the competition would be European, four or five from South America, two each from the rest of the Americas, Asia and Africa, leaving the Oceania to battle for the last place with a South American team.

The consortium backing the competition is being led by Japan's Softbank with the main backers coming from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. The other twelve clubs will be picked from around the world.

Barcelona and Real Madrid are said to have welcomed the proposals with Barcelona describing the tournament as an opportunity for clubs "to contribute to the growth of their brands".


Madrid's director of institutional relations, Emilio Butragueno, believes fans would prefer the new tournament over the current seven-team format.

Europe's top domestic competitions, including the English Premier League and Spain's La Liga, have also opposed FIFA's plans.

It's claimed that Federation Internationale de Football Association president Gianni Infantino is aiming to secure an agreement for the new competition before this summer's World Cup begins next month.

Argentine captain, Lionel Messi says winning the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation is the only way to overcome the heartache of losing the 2014 FIFA World Cup final to Germany.
