FIFA will push to hold the World Cup every two years and are set to begin a dialogue with soccer clubs, leagues and players' unions this month.

European soccer body UEFA has warned it could boycott if the World Cup moves from its historic four-year cycle, and South American counterpart CONMEBOL is also opposed.

FIFA argues biennial World Cups will give more players and teams the chance to compete in meaningful games, improve talent globally and raise more money to fuel development programs.
