CONMEBOL have confirmed that the South American teams will boycott the FIFA World Cup, should it take place every two years.
Rumors have emerged in recent weeks that FIFA are looking to have the World Cup take place every two years, as opposed to the current format of every four years. This has divided the opinions of many people and CONMEBOL have communicated a message regarding the possible new format.
The message mentions how there’s no real reasons, benefits or justifications for the World Cup to be held every two years. And because of that, the 10 South American national teams will not participate in the World Cup if it it’s every two years. This was released on Wednesday.
