France boss Didier Deschamps is not a fan of FIFA’s plans for the 2030 World Cup.
In commemorating the 100th anniversary of the World Cup, FIFA plans to hold the 2030 World Cup on three different continents and up to six nations.
Didier Deschamps has hit out at the plan and argues that the segmented nature of this plan might impact other teams more than others.
Deschamps singled out the teams that will be based in South America during the tournament and the likely advantage that South American teams are likely to have over other nations from outside the region.
In a press conference, he said, “Beyond the fact that it’s a trend, organising it over multiple countries, there is also the distinctive aspect of matches being held on the continent of South America. I don’t know which countries will be involved, it will mean that the South American countries will be at an advantage and then the other countries will have to move around.”

Deschamps indicated that he prefers when things (about the World Cup tournament) are “more coherent on a sporting and ethical level.”
However, FIFA looks set to press ahead with these plans for the 2030 World Cup, marking a landmark moment in the tournament’s history.
