Paper suggests playing Qatar 2022 World Cup at night

WITH suggestions that a winter World Cup may be needed to allow winning bidder Qatar to host the 2022 footballing showpiece, an inspired suggestion has been put forward by the Mirror – play the tournament at night.
In his article here, journalist Ed Malyon proposes a nighttime tournament, which would allow the tournament to go ahead in cooler temperatures, still in summer and at a time to suit audiences in Europe and America to boot.
He says: “An idea which, rather surprisingly hasn’t really surfaced as an alternative despite making all the sense in the world – or at least as much sense as a World Cup in Qatar can.
“Play it at night.
“Breathtakingly simple, but also sane.
“Average temperatures at midnight are nearly half that of the daily high during the summer, the time difference would make it perfectly acceptable for viewing audiences in Europe and the Americas and, best of all, there is no need for widescale disruption to the majority of the world’s domestic leagues.”
He does add however though that “with this being FIFA though, the very presence of common sense is likely to rule any idea out of the running”.
Inspired. no? Made me think.
