FIFA set to meet over 25 billion dollars offer to launch two tournaments

FIFA is planning to hold a special meeting next month at which two lucrative tournaments could be given the go-ahead. Football's world governing body is said to have held "promising" consultations in recent weeks with regional confederations, individual football associations and leading clubs over the creation of a revamped Club World Cup and a new 'Nations League'.

The tournaments would generate 25 billion dollars in revenue. A source close to the organization said that if the governing body believes there is an appetite for the competitions, it will invite its ruling council members to an extraordinary session which will likely be held at its headquarters in Zurich and is tentatively scheduled for mid-May.
