La Liga criticises World Cup and Club World Cup plans

It added that Fifa “continues its malpractice of making unilateral decisions on the world football calendar” while also neglecting “the economic damage these decisions inflict on leagues around the world”.

“These decisions do not take into account the competitive, sporting and economic impact on national leagues, clubs and players, by further cramming an already overloaded schedule,” it continued.

Previous sceptics of the Fifa plans have also noted the potential effects on player welfare, with representative from the players union – Fifpro – and Professional Footballers’ Association also criticising the announcement.

La Liga finished its statement by adding that it would analyse the plans alongside the World Leagues Forum (WLF) – who represent professional football leagues – before deciding on the “appropriate next steps”.
