Federation Internationale de Football Association wants to stage a new six-team playoff round in the World Cup host country for two places ahead of a 48-team tournament.
The proposed plan also gives additional slots to North and Central America, South America, Africa and Asia.
"The host country would also automatically qualify for the FIFA World Cup, and its slot would be taken from the quota of its confederation".
The recommendations will be submitted in May to be approved by the governing body, after its president Gianni Infantino's plan to expand it from 32 to 48 nations.
While this was an obvious move with the number of new teams coming in, it's still startling to realize that the number of CONCACAF teams guaranteed entry into the World Cup will double.
A roadmap published by Fifa in October a year ago said the association would "change the current model to take more direct control of critical business operations, including Fifa World Cup ticketing and Fifa World Cup organising activities".

According to CBS News , the fifth grader just finished creating the concoction when both of her hands started hurting. Doctors say it's important to read the ingredients in any mixtures used to make slime.
"In context it's not a direct entry for New Zealand, we still have to win our competition but having to win our competition instead of playing against the fifth best team in South America is a better path for all the teams in Oceania".
Excluding Europe, the other five confederations would send one team to the playoffs, with the host continent providing the sixth side.
The number tallies to UEFA's original request of three extra slots to its current 13 slots. The winners would advance in the bracket to face the two higher-ranked teams.
Infantino and the presidents of each of the six confederations of world football met on Thursday at FIFA's headquarters in Zurich and agreed on the slot allocation.
New Zealand Football says proposed changes to World Cup qualifications could be a game changer.
The play-off tournament will be held in the country hosting the main event with November 2025 suggested as the date for the first edition. The tournament will take place in the World Cup host country. This, however, puts the Confederations Cup's long-term future at risk.
