FIFA President Gianni Infantino has been re-elected until 2027 and has stated that there needs to be more football played in the world. This comes after the announcement of an expanded 2026 World Cup and a new 32-team Club World Cup, which has been criticized by player unions and La Liga for its demands on players. Infantino also discussed the possibility of introducing a salary cap in football and improving transparency in the transfer system. The total prize money for the 2023 Women’s World Cup will be $150m compared to $15m in 2015, and Infantino hopes to achieve equality in payments for the 2026 men’s and 2027 women’s World Cups. FIFA is committed to assessing the human rights legacy of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, where there have been concerns about the treatment of migrant workers and the country’s human rights record. Human rights organizations have welcomed FIFA’s pledge but say that workers have already waited too long for justice.
