2022 Football World Cup May be Played in Winter
The president of FIFA, football's governing body, admitted on Monday that awarding the 2022 World Cup to Qatar may have been a mistake. Staging the tournament in the Middle East has caused much controversy because if it is held over its traditional dates in the summer months, players and fans will have to contend with searing 50 degrees Celsius heat. Some are now calling for the World Cup to be played during the winter months when the weather in Qatar is more suitable for a football match. However, this idea has drawn criticism because it would cause disruption to domestic league competitions in European countries such as Spain, England, Italy, Germany and France. In 2010, Qatar defeated bids from South Korea, Japan, Australia and the United States to win the right to host the football tournament for the first time.
