Football: Super League players would risk a World Cup ban, says FIFA boss


LONDON (Reuters) - FIFA President Gianni Infantino warned on Wednesday that any players taking part in a breakaway European super league would be excluded from the World Cup and other international tournaments. "If there are players who don’t play organised football then that encompasses everything -- national leagues, confederation competitions, the Euros and the World Cup," the Times newspaper quoted him as saying. "If clubs organise a breakaway Super League, who benefits? "If FIFA organises a Club World Cup, UEFA continues to organise the Champions League and the Premier League continues to organise the Premier League then the clubs benefit but also 211 member associations." The Club World Cup, currently an annual tournament with seven teams, could become a four-yearly event featuring 24 clubs instead.
