FIFA has stepped up its campaign to organize the FIFA World Cup every two years by mobilizing supporters of the idea from football fans around the world.
The federation's public relations campaign came with an online opinion poll commissioned by FIFA to help counter opposition from Europe and South America.
FIFA's statement did not provide details on the survey's methodology and questions asked in it, but said the results showed "significant differences between the so-called traditional football markets and developing markets".
FIFA President Gianni Infantino believes that organizing more tournaments will increase the chances and enthusiasm of most of the 211 member states, many of which have not qualified for the World Cup.
The European Football Association "UEFA" and its South American counterpart "CONMEBOL" oppose FIFA's plan to organize the World Cup every two years instead of four, threatening to boycott the additional World Cup finals.
Europe and South America make up 65 of FIFA's 211 members, less than a third of the total needed to prevent any proposal from being implemented.
