Nearly 90% of Tickets Sold for the World Cup in Russian Federation

The European Leagues are opposed to FIFA's plans to introduce two brand new competitions, a revamped Club World Cup and a new FIFA Nations League. According to the news agency Associated Press, the plans backed by $25 Billion funds from worldwide consortium were discussed by representatives of the six continental federations in Zurich.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and FIFA President Gianni Infantino have visited a FIFA World Cup Fan ID center to receive their own personalized identification cards.

Infantino has said that he believes the deals together could be worth $25 billion in a 12-year cycle and has put his plans to FIFA's Council saying they are backed by an, as yet unnamed, worldwide consortium of investors. Fifty-five out of FIFA's 211 voters are African country members. Those that progress to the final eight would then land an additional $15 million and another $5 million for being runner-up or US$10 million for claiming the title.

A new World Cup version of the popular ultimate team mode will also form part of the update, complete with a new chemistry system linked to the real-world tournament.

The idea will also change the current effectiveness of the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings systems as each continental league will have a relegation and promotion aspect to it.

It could lead to criticism that Fifa is over-complicating worldwide football and devaluing its flagship World Cup. 16 more teams will compete in this tournament, adding more games and changing the group stage, which will have three teams.

FIFA have made an ambitious proposal to revamp worldwide football which would effectively end the FIFA Confederations Cup tournament held every four years.

The host nation comes into the championship without a wins out of the 5 friendlies.
