How many teams participate in that tournament? Is it going up from the 32?

Could be a decent tournament to travel to...


EDIT: It's surely going to have to increase in numbers if 3 host nations automatically qualify :ponder:

If itís a 48 team competition and the US and Mexico are (obviously) exempt from qualifying, some pretty small CONCACAF nations are going to be in with a shout.

Great timing for Trump to fall out with Canada and build his wall.

80 games must mean 16 groups of three with two going through from each group? Is that right?

Mexico. Strange place to host the world cup considering thousands a year are murdered there by cartels.

29,000 last year. 29 effing thousand

I think that is the general plan so far. 16 groups of three. Two go through, for a round of 32 and so on and so forth. Though it will be hugely bloated, I think less group games and more knock out games, could make it more tense and exciting.

The tournament will open with a group stage consisting of 16 groups of three teams, with the top two teams progressing from each group to a knockout tournament starting with a round of 32 teams. The number of games played overall will increase from 64 to 80, but the number of games played by finalists remains at seven, the same as with 32 teams, except that one group match will be replaced by a knockout match. The tournament will also be completed within 32 days, same as previous 32-team tournaments

I'd guess the murder rate was higher in '86 but regardless 'holding the world cup in strange places' is possibly FIFA's motto.

There was never much doubt about this one.

The days of the World Cup being hosted by one country must surely be almost over. Russia looks like the last for the while anyway.

I reckon we might well see a GB and Ireland bid eventually which would see Scotland into the competition. Would NornIrn get in automatically as nominal hosts? They don't have a stadium capable of hosting WC games...

If only they'd mentioned that in the article, somewhere you'd easily notice it, like right at the top or something.

It is 48 teams.
