Global Football organisation FIFA is considering a move to holding a men's World Cup Competition every two years, rather than every four. It is carrying out a feasibility study led by former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger. Over half of FIFA's 210 national associations have given their backing to the study into the idea but the move has brought condemnation from some corners with commentators claiming it's just a cash grab.

He was in Doha last week to hear FIFA outline their proposed plan for the change.
