Mini-World Cup every 2 years? Great idea according to Federation Internationale de Football Association

When is the 2018 Fifa Club World Cup? All you need to know about the UAE tournament

Fifa has opened talks over a new global Nations League worldwide tournament which could see some European soccer federations earn up to US$75 million every two years.

FIFA began talks on Monday over two new proposed competitions which could reshape worldwide football and be worth billions of dollars to the global football body.

According to Reuters, Infantino suggested in a letter that the tournament, named the Final 8, would take place every October and/or November of every odd year starting from 2021.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) says Fifa's decision to advance US$2 million in prize money will help the country's players "focus exclusively on football on the pitch" in Russia. A World Cup update will also come to FIFA Mobile on June 6.

Fifa's global format would begin with regional qualifying groups featuring promotion and relegation, which would then lead to intercontinental finals brackets in seven divisions.

An expanded Club World Cup, which would be played in June or July with 12 from Europe in a 24-team lineup, is a potential rival to the globally popular Champions League guaranteed by UEFA.

Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal and Tunisia have qualified for the tournament and can expect money from Federation Internationale de Football Association to deal with the issue of player bonuses. The official match ball will also be included (naturally, can't have any of this generic nonsense) as will the proper FIFA World Cup trophy, for added authenticity when your team goes on to win the final. However, this is set to be abolished in favour of this new competition, which would tie in with the current major tournaments.

FIFA's 37-member ruling council still needs to approve the two competitions.

As well as the real-life format of the tournament, players will also be able to create their own custom competition with any of the licenced national teams in the game - a chance to mend Italian hearts or send Christian Pulisic and the rest of the US MNT to the WC.

Infantino's letter said that all revenue from the competition would be redistributed.
