BREAKING: FIFA pledges 32-team Women’s World Cup


Fifa president Gianni Infantino has pledged to increase the size of the Women’s World Cup to 32 teams and double its prize money, and launch a women’s Club World Cup.

After calling the current tournament “the best women’s World Cup ever”, Infantino set out a five-point plan to make sure football “seizes this opportunity”.

Bidding for the 2023 tournament – which has yet to be allocated and was set to contain 24 sides – may have to restart to accommodate the extra teams.
