2022 World Cup matches could be played after midnight due to Qatar heat

Quote:
In dismissing a September prediction from a FIFA executive that the 2022 World Cup would not be held in Qatar, organizers insisted: “The only question now is WHEN, not IF.”

When” was meant as a question of summer or winter as organizers seek a way around the danger posed by Qatar’s scorching temperatures in June and July — the World Cup’s traditional dates. But now a former FIFA official and potential challenger for the FIFA presidency is suggesting a time shift of a different nature.

“You could play the first games at 7 p.m., the second games at 10 p.m. and the third matches at 1 a.m.,” Harold Mayne-Nicholls told BBC Sport.

At this point it's only a matter of time before WC is moved.

FIFA is such a horribly corrupt organization. And the IOC.

I can't see the World Cup being very good for the next 8 years. The next one is in Russia and with KGB Putin in charge, you can guarantee he'll fuck it all up with politics.

Then Qatar. Sheesh.

Apprently FIFA investigated corruption allegations. Unfortuantely they are keeping the report on that investigation secret.

It's not like the conclusions would be a big shock.
