Qatar 2022 World Cup in winter should not clash with Olympics
Jan 8, 8:00am EST
The 2022 World Cup will not be played during the hot summer in Qatar, a FIFA official said, but the proposed time window would not cross into the 2022 Winter Olympics.
“The dates of the World Cup will not be in June or July,” FIFA general secretary Jerome Valcke told France Inter Radio, according to Reuters. “I think it will be played between November 15 and January 15 the latest.”
Valcke’s comment agrees with what has been said before, though one of FIFA’s vice presidents denied the time frame had been decided Wednesday.
