The General Secretary of UEFA, Gianni Infantino, who is a candidate for President of the International Football Federation FIFA, called for the holding of a World Championship in different countries. This is stated in his official programme, published on the site Fifaforward2016.com.
`FIFA should consider the possibility of holding World Cup not in one or two countries, and in a specific region as a whole, to have the honor of a few countries to hold World Cup and to have the opportunity to gain from this.`, considered Infantino.
A similar idea has already been performed by the President of UEFA, Michel Platini to hold the European Championships in several countries. In 2020, the finals of the European Football Championship will be played in 13 countries.
The FIFA presidential election will be held on February 26. Infantino will fight for the post with Jordan Prince Ali bin Al Hussein, the former Deputy Secretary General of FIFA`S Jerome Champagne from France, Tokyo Seksvale of South Africa and the President of the Asian Football Confederation, Sheikh Salman Bin Ibrahim Al Khalifa.
