FIFA To Block New Look Nations League

The Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) is reported to be ready to UEFA from moving on with its proposal to launch a new look Nations League which is set to feature 10 South American countries as the two footballing bodies battle it out for control over the international calender.

The two footballing federations are set to hold a virtual summit in a bid to come to a consensus over UEFA’s intentions of launching a new look Nations League which they plan to add 10 South African countries starting 2024.

FIFA is said to have been in the dark with regards to UEFA’s reboot of the UEFA Nations League which is said to threaten the division of international football into two.

‘From 2024 CONMEBOL will join the Nations League,’ UEFA vice-president Zbigniew Boniek revealed last week. 

‘We do not know yet in what formula, in what form. But we signed a memorandum about cooperation between CONMEBOL and UEFA and from 2024 these teams will play in the Nations League.’

‘UEFA is working on a number of projects with CONMEBOL, including a joint Nations League but nothing is finalised and no decisions have yet been made,’ a UEFA spokesperson added.
