Twitter Launches Into Arguments For And Against The 48-Team World Cup

Today, Fifa have confirmed that the World Cup will be expanded from 32 teams to 48 teams from 2026 onwards.

The debate has been naturally raging whether this is a good or a bad move for the future of the tournament, with persuasive arguments on each side.

The main argument in favour of the move is that there will be increased opportunity for teams such as Ireland to qualify for the tournament, while it will bring more diversity and the event as a whole will be an even bigger party.

The detractors of the move have been out in numbers, citing increased revenue as one of the main reasons for the expansion.
