FIFA President Gianni Infantino has revealed that the International Olympic Committee, IOC will consider increasing the number of teams participating in the Women’s Olympic football tournament in the future, Bestchoicesports.com.ng can report
Infantino joined the IOC at the weekend, four years after he assumed the top job at FIFA, and he stressed that women football deserved more at the Games.
“We must give women the role or place they deserve,” the FIFA boss told David Owen.
He added that making the women’s tournament the same size as the men’s was “perhaps” a discussion worth having.
Currently, the men’s tournament has 16 participating teams in the Olympic, four more than the Women’s tournament.
The 49-year-old Swiss national was elected by 63 votes to 13 at the 135th IOC Session on Friday.
