In my view, despite being a "non-profit" FIFA worships the almighty dollar.

That's been made clear enough about how much the World Cup brings in, and how much FIFA sits on. How much corruption exists within the organization and how Russia and Qatar bribed their way to hosting the WC.

Hurting their bottom line is not a laughing matter for them, imo. The whole reason to expand the tournament to 48 teams is not because it's good for the game, it's because it's good for advertising. More countries in the tournament = more money.
