All 20 Premier League clubs have united to oppose FIFA's plans with regards to the post-2024 International Match Calendar reform process.

Football body FIFA have been pushing for a biennial World Cup tournament and larger international windows, with these proposed plans now going down terribly with top flight teams.

Following the announcement of plans - in the aftermath of the release of a revised 2022-23 fixture calendar to accommodate the Qatar World Cup - the Premier League released a statement in which it was confirmed that all clubs were against the proposal.

The statement read: "All 20 Premier League clubs have discussed the post-2024 International Match Calendar reform process and are unanimously opposed to FIFA's proposal for biennial men's World Cups, along with any plans involving significantly extended international windows."
