2022 Winter World Cup In Qatar ‘Done Deal’ According to Respected American Journalist

The European calender is set to be interrupted.

A date has been set for the controversial Qatar World Cup in 2022 with confirmation expected next month, according to Sports Illustrated’s Grant Wahl.

Since Qatar was handed the honour of hosting the World Cup in eight years time, talk of bribes, corruption and a winter tournament have dominated the headlines.

Due to the heat in the middle-east during the summer, a World Cup in the conventional period is considered next to impossible by most.

A Winter world cup then became an option and it seems as though it looks set to take place mid-season with November 2022 set as a possible start date.

According to the reports, FIFA will meet up in Zurich next month to finalise the decision with the European footballing calendar likely to be interrupted.
