FIFA kicks off talks on 2022 World Cup dates


DOHA: A FIFA taskforce met on Tuesday in Doha to discuss moving the 2022 World Cup in Qatar to winter due to scorching summer temperatures in the Gulf state. A shift to November-December is seen as likely but faces resistance from European clubs who fear major disruption to high-profile championships such as La Liga, Bundesliga and the Premier League. Traditionally the World Cup is played in June and July and if the competition is shifted to November and December, it is likely the European clubs will seek hefty compensation.
