Women's World Cup could go to 32 teams

Infantino has, however, pledged to introduce two new women's competitions: a Club World Cup and league for nations between World Cups.

The 37-member FIFA Council had been due to vote on the 2023 Women's World Cup host in March 2020, with nine countries expressing interesting in bidding.

"The resources are there and I think the willingness and the brainpower is all there and the people wanting to work in the women's game and make it as good as we can, it's all there".

On the same day the U.S. women's soccer team face off against the Netherlands in the World Cup final, North and South America will both wrap up their continental men's soccer tournaments.

"The tricky thing is that we have a World Cup for which we just started a bidding process based on 24 teams, so there we need to act more quickly and discuss it as a matter of urgency, in which case we should reopen the bidding process".

"I think we should increase the number of participants", said Infantino, who has succeeded in expanding the men's tournament from 32 teams to 48 in time for the 2026 finals.

These wins have been hard to come by, with the gender disparity in facility access and wages well documented in the lead up to the World Cup.

Epstein because there were many other people who participated with him and made the sex trafficking possible", added Boies. Epstein, now 66, also was required to register as a sex offender.

An overall contribution of $50 million was made for this year's tournament, which included doubling the prize money from $15 million to $30 million.

But women's teams earn significantly less for competing at the women's showpiece. "Clubs would invest even more in women's football to shine on the world stage".

Fifa's cash reserves at the end of 2018 stood at US$2.74 billion. "I mean, we're making a World Cup in Qatar happen". He suggested it publicly in 2017 but said Friday that it proved logistically infeasible to act at the time without adjustments to the worldwide match calendar for the women's game.

The finale of the Women's World Cup between defending champions the United States and European champions The Netherlands, expected to be watched by millions across the globe, takes place at Stade de Lyon tomorrow. "It's actually unbelievable. So, no, I don't think that we feel the same level of respect, certainly that Federation Internationale de Football Association has for the men and just in general".

"We don't often give them kudos, but that's definitely one that I'm willing to give". We don't need all this money in the Swiss banks. "So I think that they do deserve a tremendous amount of credit for that, and we'll continue to nudge them forward".

Rapinoe also stood by previous comments that she would not visit the White House should the U.S. win on Sunday, though she said she couldn't say the same for the other players on the team.

"I know a lot of my groups of friends back home have become so much more involved with it in the past 6 to 12 months".
