世界盃隊伍再增加 2026年變48隊

FIFA(國際足總)計劃擴增世界盃比賽隊伍,從32支球隊增至48支,除了帶來更龐大的週邊利潤外,也能讓熱愛足球的邊緣小國更有機會登上世界足球殿堂,今(10)日稍早前表決已一致通過,將在2026年後開始實施。

綜合外媒報導,自2026年後,世界盃足球隊伍將從32支擴軍至48支,小組賽將分為16組,每組3支球隊進行單循環制比賽,晉級隊伍將參與淘汰賽,估計全數80場比賽將在32天內完成。據悉,48支隊伍將會增加比賽的可看性,因而帶來10億美元(約322億新台幣)的潛在利潤。

國際足球總會主席因凡提諾(Gianni Infantino)指出,該項提案是為了世界各地足球發展而推動,世界盃應更具有「包容性」,而不是建立於財政考量。

但並非全部的人都支持這項計畫,德國教練阿姆希(Joachim Low)指出,他能夠理解小國球隊參與比賽及晉級的渴望,但是長期下來恐會將低足球的平均水準與質量。

歐洲俱樂部協會也寫信給FIFA表示抗議,認為世界盃的比賽隊伍已經達到了不可接受數量。

FIFA:決賽圈資格增至48隊

國際足球總會(FIFA)周二宣布,已表決通過自2026年世界盃足球賽開始,將決賽圈名額由現行32隊提高至48隊,是1998年法國世界盃後首次擴大參賽名額,預估可使FIFA世界盃收入提高多達25%至65億美元(約2076.6億元台幣)以上。世界盃是先由外圍賽決定賽圈資格,再由取得資格的國家隊伍出戰為期約1個月的世界盃賽事。

網友哭:要買不起全套世界盃紀念貼紙惹

世界盃是全球觀眾最多的運動賽事,FIFA的決定宣布後,已在網上掀起熱烈討論。不少外國網友開始擔心,決賽周隊伍增加到48隊後,2026年得多花多少錢才能收集全套世界盃球員貼紙,紛紛開玩笑說這將產生一場因貼紙而起的「財務危機」。

由FIFA授權帕尼尼(PANINI)所推出周邊產品─歷屆世界盃貼紙收藏冊─風行已久。英國《每日郵報》報導,參考過去的世界盃貼紙收藏冊,到了2026年球迷們可能至少有980張貼紙得收集,如果價格幸運地保持不變,集滿全套的最低代價將是98英鎊(約3887.7元台幣),但考慮到避免錯失新貼紙的機率,球迷得付出的平均代價很可能接近500英鎊(約1萬9835元台幣)。

2014年巴西足球盃時推出的帕尼尼貼紙冊,總共有72頁、640張貼紙;2016年為歐洲杯所出的貼紙冊涵蓋24支隊伍,貼紙數量達680張。這代表世界盃決賽圈參賽隊伍額外增加16隊後,貼紙冊至少得多增加16頁、每頁貼紙可能約20張,且還不含一次性特別貼紙,意味到時新出的貼紙數量恐怕只多不少。

有網友在twitter(推特)上說:「我得從現在開始存錢了,否則沒辦法完成2026世界盃帕尼尼貼紙冊全套收藏。」還有1名網友說:「確定了以後將有48國可出賽世界盃,人們將會為了完成帕尼尼貼紙冊收藏而透支(overdraft)。」

英國博彩業者Coral更在推特上聲稱:「如今要完成帕尼尼貼紙冊收藏,得花上大約8567英鎊(約34萬元台幣)。」

歐洲足球俱樂部反彈:賽事品質將下降

彭博報導,FIFA擴大世界盃參賽名額的決定,先前已遭歐洲足球俱樂部反對,聲稱這種做法將導致競賽的絕對品質(absolute quality)下降。根據FIFA分析,2018年俄羅斯世界盃預期將帶來55億美元(約1757.1億元台幣)收入,而改成新制後,2026年世界盃收入可望增至超過65億美元。

會員包括皇家馬德里(Real Madrid)、曼聯(Manchester United)、巴薩(FC Barcelona)等豪門勁旅的歐洲足球俱樂部協會(ECA)發函表示:「我們都無法觀察到改變現行32支參賽隊伍名額的好處,現行參賽名額規劃從各方面來看已是最完美的方案。FIFA如此急於通過此重要決定也令人起疑,既未邀集會受此決定影響的利益相關團體適當參與討論,距離新制預定實施時間也尚有9年。」

將世界盃決賽圈名額增至48隊,意味FIFA近4分之1會員協會(member association)可取得參賽資格。FIFA目前擁有221個會員協會。在新制下,48支隊伍在首輪比賽中將分成16組、每組3隊,並採單淘汰制,和現行制度相同的是最終仍將由16支出線隊伍爭奪冠軍。

由世界盃提倡的參與精神來看,增至48隊的確可讓更多國家有機會參與背後的原因還不是為了FIFA賺錢
不過現時32隊已時有水平較一般的沉悶戲碼,48隊的話......
而且更多的賽事勢必增加主辦國的財政負擔(看看巴西)
更有說FIFA主席建議分組賽設12碼以免出現和局,3隊一組都是1-0得3分看你怎麼辦XD
以下是英文的詳細報導:

World Cup: Fifa to expand competition to 48 teams after vote

The World Cup will be expanded to host 48 teams, up from 32, Fifa has decided.

An initial stage of 16 groups of three teams will precede a knockout stage for the remaining 32 when the change is made for the 2026 tournament.

The sport's world governing body voted unanimously in favour of the change at a meeting in Zurich on Tuesday.

The number of tournament matches will rise to 80, from 64, but the eventual winners will still play only seven games.

The tournament will be completed within 32 days - a measure to appease powerful European clubs, who objected to reform because of a crowded international schedule.

The changes mark the first World Cup expansion since 1998.

Why expand? 'Football is more than just Europe and South America'

Fifa president Gianni Infantino has been behind the move, saying the World Cup has to be "more inclusive".

"We are in the 21st century and we have to shape the World Cup of the 21st century," he said at a news conference after the announcement.

"It is the future. Football is more than just Europe and South America, football is global.

"The football fever you have in a country that qualifies for the World Cup is the biggest promotional tool for football you can have.

"This football promotion, in many parts of the world where today they have no chance to play [at the World Cup], was at the top of our thoughts."

According to Fifa research, revenue is predicted to increase to £5.29bn for a 48-team tournament, giving a potential profit rise of £521m.

Campaign group New Fifa Now described the expansion as "a money grab and power grab".

But Infantino said: "It's not at all a money and power grab, it is the opposite, it's a football decision."

He added the decision was taken "based on sporting merit".

He says the decision on who will get the extra qualification slots has yet to be decided but "this will be looked at speedily".

"No guarantees have been made," he added. "The only sure thing is that everyone will have a bit more [representation] than they have."

He says there is no rush to decide what will be used to separate teams who finish on the same points and goal difference. Reports had suggested there could be a penalty shootout at the end of each drawn match.

But Infantino said: "This will be part of the regulations to be decided a few years before the event, it is nothing for now."

FA wants further information

The Football Association said in a statement: "We will work with Uefa, Fifa and the other European associations to understand how the 48-team Fifa World Cup will work.

"The priority has to be consideration of the potential impact on fans, players, teams and leagues, and also recognition of the importance of sporting integrity and commercial viability.

"In terms of the allocation of places, we note that further discussions will follow across the confederations and would expect a proper consultation process to be carried out before any decision is made."

Scottish Football Association chief executive Stewart Regan welcomed the expansion, saying it was a a "positive step, particularly for the smaller nations".

Uefa, European football's governing body,said: "It was clear that all other confederations were overwhelmingly in favour of expanding the Fifa World Cup to 48 teams. As a result, Uefa decided to join in supporting the new format of the competition.

"Uefa is satisfied that it succeeded in postponing the final decision regarding the slot allocation of every confederation in the future format of the Fifa World Cup.

"We would also like to state that we are happy that the new proposed length and format of the tournament does not increase the burden on players. We will also ensure that clubs' interests will continue to be protected."

What the critics say: 'It will dilute the competitiveness'

The European Club Association (ECA), which represents the interests of clubs at European level, reiterated it was not in favour of an expansion. It said Fifa had made a political rather than sporting decision.

"We fail to see the merits to changing the format of 32 that has proven to be the perfect formula from all perspectives," it said in a statement.

"Questionable is also the urgency in reaching such an important decision, with nine years to go until it becomes applicable, without the proper involvement of stakeholders who will be impacted by this change.

"ECA will analyse in detail the impact and the consequences of the new format and will address the matter at the next meeting of its executive board, scheduled for the end of January."

New Fifa Now says the governing body needs to reform, said it would "dilute the competitiveness of the tournament".

"It will not help development of the game or provide improved competitive opportunities for lower-ranked nations," it added. "Instead, it will make a mockery of the qualification process for most confederations."
