Cape Town - Africa will again have five representatives at the 2018 and 2022 Soccer World Cups in Russia and Qatar, respectively.
This follows a decision at the annual FIFA congress in Zurich, the day after Sepp Blatter was elected as president for a fifth - and final - term, amid the scandals currently rocking the organisation.
As per the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Africa will be represented by five countries in 2018 and 2022. Europe will have 13, Asia 4.5, North, Central America and the Caribbean (Concacaf) 3.5, Oceania 0.5 and South America 4.5.
Russia (2018) and Qatar (2022) qualify automatically as hosts.
A "half place" means that the team in question has a playoff over two legs against a team from another continent for a place in the finals.
FIFA also announced that, in accordance to their rotation system, any country outside of Asia can bid for the right to host the 2026 tournament.
