Federation Internationale de Football Association president propose 'mini World Cup' every two years featuring eight teams

Share

A Russian Federation 2018 World Cup update is coming to FIFA 18 on May 29.

If this proposal is approved it then means that the Confederations Cup, now staged every four years in a year before the World Cup, would be abolished.

In welcome news for those who think that four years is just too long to wait between World Cups, FIFA president Gianni Infantino has proposed staging a new mini-World Cup every two years.

At the 2014 World Cup: Cameroon arrived late, Ghana's government had to fly in $3m cash to avert a strike and Nigeria players canceled a team training session. Previous World Cups have been immortalised with their own EA game, a sort of spin-off franchise that seemed to begin in 1986 (can you believe?). However, most fans will be excited by the fact that all 32 teams who have qualified for the tournament will be included in the game.

The Oculus Go is already hitting store shelves
A separate report from UploadVR this morning notes that F8 developer attendees are likely to receive Oculus Go headsets for free. The company has long maintained that bringing your hands into VR is more important than getting your head there.

The concept, called "Final 8", would be held October or November of every odd-numbered year and could commence as soon as 2021. This latest update will give gamers an opportunity to play as qualified teams through the worldwide tournament.

Federation Internationale de Football Association would run the new competitions and an agency would be used to commercialize the competitions, including selling television rights.

Dynamic items will also be present, which will be carefully calibrated over the course of the real-life tournament to ensure they reflect such factors as match day performances and updated stats. They also took part in the opening ceremony of the FIFA Confederations Cup in St. Petersburg last June. You'll even be able to play with the official match ball and raise the authentic FIFA World Cup trophy if you're able to go all the way. EA has been developing the World Cup games since France 1998. Other new features include all stadiums, kits, and badges from the tournament, as well as the ability to unlock some of the most famous World Cup players ever. What country would you like to see win the World Cup in 2018?
