FIFA are set to introduce the controversial World Club Cup, that caused Manchester United to pull out of the FA Cup last season, as a biennial event.

United caused great controversy last season when they decided to pull out of the FA Cup in order to play in the World Club Championship in Brazil, and came under great criticism for their performances in the tournament.

It is believed that the issue will be one of the things to be discussed when Fifa meet in Zurich next month to decide who will host the World Cup in 2006.

The number of participants is to be expanded from eight to twelve, to allow two clubs to enter from each of the six Fifa confederations. The tournament is also to be made into a summer event to accommodate the domestic commitments of European clubs.
