MANCHESTER, England (Reuters) - FIFA will hold a global summit next week to discuss their plans for holding the World Cup every two years but their biggest opponent, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin, shows no sign of backing down.

Ceferin said his organisation had no agreed strategy for Monday's meeting, suggesting it would not be a defining moment in the process.

“We don’t have a particular strategy. For Monday, it will be 211 federations, that means 500 people at the videoconference. I don’t expect something very deep. Victor Montagliani, a key ally of FIFA president Gianni Infantino and head of CONCACAF, which governs the game in North and Central America and the Caribbean, told Reuters earlier this month that he was leaning towards a compromise solution.

“I might be naive but I still hope that we will start speaking with some documentation, with some concrete proposals, with some serious ideas and not wait until the morning when the newspapers come to see what is the new proposal of some of our colleagues," he added.
