Qatar determined to take heat out of hosting


DOHA: The debate may be raging over whether the 2022 World Cup finals in Qatar should be switched to the winter, but one party content to stick with the original summer dates are the local organizers themselves. FIFA president Sepp Blatter has launched a consultation process over whether the football showpiece should be moved so as not to endanger players’ and fans’ health in the unbearable summer heat that can reach 50 degrees celsius. Organizers, though, are adamant they can come through with their plans to keep the stadia cool.
