Zurich: FIFA wants to abolish international friendly matches in February and August, in a move that will appease European clubs.
FIFA has announced a proposed calendar of international matches from 2015-18 after a meeting of world football stakeholders which was boycotted by the 200-member European Club Association.
The suggested calendar calls for double-header dates each March, September, October and November, plus June in odd-numbered years.
FIFA says the calendar has "no specific dates for friendlies."
FIFA's executive committee must approve the calendar at a March 29-30 meeting.
Clubs, which are obliged to release their players for calendar matches, have lobbied FIFA to abolish the one-off friendly dates.
