Uefa threatens World Cup boycott as Coe joins chorus of disapproval

The Guardian says Fifa’s radical plans to stage a biennial World Cup came under attack hours after they were officially unveiled on Thursday – with the World Athletics president, Sebastian Coe, warning of growing anger across Olympic sports and Uefa’s president, Aleksander Ceferin, saying the proposals could “kill football”.

The Premier League joined 36 other European leagues in signing a statement stating they were “firmly and unanimously opposed” to Fifa’s proposals for a new international calendar which would see a major international tournament every summer, with the World Cup and Euros in alternate years.

Arsène Wenger, Fifa’s head of global development, has suggested that a biennial World Cup could begin in 2028, weeks before the Los Angeles Olympics is due to take place.
