Never. Under the current schedule, everything happens in a four-year cycle. The Summer Olympics are held in years evenly divisible by 4, the Men's World Cup is held two years later, and the Women's World Cup is held a year after the Men's. So the upcoming Summer Olympics will be in 2016, 2020, 2024, 2028, etc. The upcoming Men's World Cups will be in 2018, 2022, 2026, 2030, etc. The upcoming Women's World Cups will be in 2019, 2023, 2027, 2031, etc. (The Winter Olympics are held two years after the Summer Olympics, the same year as the Men's World Cup.) Now if you're asking if the World Cup schedule could be adjusted so it coincides with the Olympics, the answer is still no. FIFA, football's international federation, owns the World Cup, and it's by far their biggest huge money maker. FIFA would never do anything to weaken the World Cup's ability to generate money. FIFA also handles all football operations for the Olympics. (Think of FIFA as a contractor hired to do a job for the Olympics.) That's why the Olympics has the Under-23 rule for the Olympics: if they allowed the best players from each country to compete in the Olympics, it would dilute the World Cup's appeal and generate less money for FIFA.

At the current rate no. World cup and Summer Olympics are held every 4 years. Last world cup was held in 2014 so the next world cup would be in 2018. The last summer olympics was held in 2012 so the next summer olympics would be in 2016.
