The FIFA 2018 World Cup Russia update is actually pretty radical, when you think about it.

Fifa has opened talks over a new global Nations League worldwide tournament which could see some European soccer federations earn up to US$75 million every two years. Players can choose from any of the 32 qualified nations and play through the authentic tournament structure, from the group stage to the final in Moscow.

Both the new Nations League and the Club World Cup would be run by Federation Internationale de Football Association, while an agency would be used to commercialise the competitions.

Spotify was up 2.66% and climbing ahead of its first earnings report as a public company, due out after Wednesday's closing bell. Average revenue per user was Euro 4.72 in Q1, down 14 percent from a year earlier, or 6 percent less excluding currency effects.

The Ultimate Team mode will also receive an update, this will include special cards, improvements to allow players to benefit by playing with teammates from their country. All the qualified players will be present with up-to-date stats, so you can be sure any pack you open will be representative of each player going into this summer's tournament. Each player will also have a brand-new icon, giving those FUT pack openings a fresh lick of paint. FIFA Mobile will also get a limited-time World Cup update from June 6, though EA hasn't said much else about the smartphone version as yet.

Currently, just the Confederations Cup caters for those craving global football in-between the World Cup and the European Cup. Each team qualifying for the "Final 8" competition in the following year would bank $15 million and another $5 million for being runner-up or $10 million for winning the title.
