It’s not going to be possible: all EPL team disagree with request to play world cup every two years

However, that idea has met with a lot of negative reactions and the Premier League has released a statement opposing this move.

All 20 clubs have unanimously agreed to stand against this idea, which also included plans for extended international breaks.

Richard Masters, Premier League Chief Executive, said: “The Premier League is committed to preventing any radical changes to the post-2024 FIFA International Match Calendar that would adversely affect player welfare and threaten the competitiveness, calendar, structures and traditions of domestic football.

“We are open to reforms and new ideas, but they must enhance the complementary balance between domestic and international football in order to improve the game at all levels.

“This process should also involve meaningful agreements with the leagues that provide the foundations for the game.

“We will continue to work with supporter groups, players, domestic and international stakeholders to find solutions that are in the best interests of football’s long-term future.”

The clubs agree that such plans would be bad for player welfare as well as have a negative impact on fans’ experience.

We will have to wait and see how FIFA responds to this statement and whether the plans for a 2-year World Cup will go ahead
