FIFA aims to make World Cup tournament draw on April 1
- United States
The draw ceremony plan was announced Wednesday by FIFA President Gianni Infantino after March 31 was selected as the date to stage, in Doha, the soccer body's annual congress of 211 member federations.
Two places are scheduled to be decided in June at intercontinental playoffs which had to be pushed back from March.
FIFA had to create an extra week in the congested calendar for World Cup qualifying games next January because most continents needed to clear their backlog.
