FIFA has announced it will begin its “fishing campaign” for 2018, with the first season scheduled to take place in August.
The tournament will run from August 5-18, 2018, in the Canary Islands.
The announcement is a continuation of FIFA’s previous plan to start the season in June.
The announcement comes a week after the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) announced that it would be postponing the 2018 World Cup for another six months.
The USOC is due to announce its decision by the end of March.
The new “fishering season” will see teams from eight different countries competing in the world’s biggest international competition.
The tournament is expected to attract up to 6 million visitors a year, with more than 1,000 countries participating.
It will also feature a host of other events, including the FIFA Women’s World Cup and the World Cup of Hockey.
FIFA president Gianni Infantino said on Thursday that the sport will continue to grow in 2018.”FIFA is a great success story for the world and the world is the great beneficiary,” Infantini said in a statement.
“We have seen a great growth and the sport is growing in number and in importance.”
The new season will be the first to be held in the Caribbean, which was the first country to host the event.
It was inaugurated on June 23, and is now in its seventh year.
