A WINTER World Cup could be on the cards in 2022 to avoid the scorching heat of Qatar’s summer.
FIFA president Sepp Blatter has said that rescheduling the traditionally summertime tournament is a real possibility, an idea also proposed by UEFA’s Michel Platini.
He said: “I definitely support playing in winter when the climate is appropriate.
“I’m thinking about the footballers, not only the fans but the actors.”
Not sure quite how clubs in the European football leagues such as the Premiership would react to having an international tournament plonked in the middle of their season though…
