FIFA argues biennial World Cups will give more players and teams the chance to compete in meaningful games, improve talent globally and raise more money to fuel development programs.

Let me translate into simple English:

“we try to make more money through sponsorship contracts and tv rights, because we have to raise the salary of our officials and a bigger bonus would also be nice.“

Money money money.

Every 4 years is enough , 2 years doesn't give the host nation enough time .

This idea is ridiculous and needs to be opposed.

The qualifying stages take about two years. So not much time for any other more local tournaments.

How about once every five years?

This proposal will definitely pass. I think it will give minor nations more opportunity to compete against major nations.

I doubt it. UEFA will never let this go through.
