The World Cup, already one of the biggest events in sports, is getting even bigger.
FIFA announced Tuesday the event will expand from 32 to 48 teams by 2026, The New York Times reports.
The move was not without controversy. FIFA is still reeling from a corruption scandal involving former president Sepp Blatter. And the bigger tournament could lead to exhausted players and less prestige, since it'll be easier to qualify. It'll also make it harder for smaller nations to host the event.
