Qatar 2022: Fifa maintains 32 teams

The 2010 FIFA World Cup, to be held in Qatar, will ultimately be 32 teams, not 48, as predicted by Fifa. The International Football Federation, which intended to implement such a format, having had meetings in at least one neighboring country, announced on Wednesday 22 May that it was giving up its project.

FIFA, which presented a feasibility study in May, has included the passage of 32 to 48 teams from 2022 on the agenda of its next June congress in Paris but said that "in the current circumstances, such a proposal could not be fulfilled ".

However, this format with 48 teams has already been approved for the 2026 World Cup in the US, Canada and Mexico.
