48 teams for the next 2026 Fifa World Cup

By on March 31, 2017

Fifa members voted in January to expand the World Cup from 32 to 48 teams, starting with the 2026 edition.

Fifa is proposing that Africa gets nine automatic places when the World Cup expands to 48 teams in 2026.

That would be an increase from the tally of five places that the continent currently holds.

Football’s world governing body has revealed its plans for how all 48 places will be allocated, with 16 Europeans teams set to qualify.

“The Bureau of the Fifa Council, comprised of the Fifa President and the president of each of the six confederations, agreed on (the) proposed allocation,” said a Fifa statement.
