FIFA president Gianni Infantino is committed to dialogue with clubs and federations on the future of the football calendar, a calendar that has already been completely shaken by the Covid-19 pandemic. This is one of the main problems that Infantino faced when he appeared in the closing session of WFS Live organized by Ronaldo, a question and answer that was asked by Ronaldo himself.
The Brazilian legend asked the FIFA president about the football calendar in the future and Infantino pointed out that it has already been shaken by the several months of inactivity caused by the pandemic. Given that so many have found the balance between club and national games problematic even before the crisis, now is the time to talk.
“When you talk about it, you find that no one is really happy with the current international match schedule. You have national team games in September, October and November, then March and then June. You have players who have to travel around the world back and forth for these games. I think it’s time to talk about it ”said Gianni Infantino.
“An idea that arose around this time, and even earlier, is that perhaps we should organize the Women’s World Cup every two years rather than every four years. For the next Women’s World Cup in 2023, we have had a lot of interest around the world. We’re going to Australia and New Zealand. So what happens next? Should we go to South America? Or maybe Europe or North America want to organize it again? Why not South America? Why not Africa? So, we have to see what we can do.
Ronaldo Nazário on the fight against racism every day: “The fight against racism is not just a fight for blacks, it is everyone’s fight. We have to fight it every day. Nobody is born a racist, but somehow people learn to be racist . We must fight to teach those who learn it as children. But it is everyone’s struggle. “
