Will Qatar Olympics Move to Winter?
The 2022 World Cup in Qatar will not be held in Summer, according to Fifa general secretary Jerome Valcke.
But his statement has been controversial and FIFA vice president Jim Boyce says plans still need to be discussed.
In a public announcement Mr Valcke said they’ve ruled out June and July and that the conditions in winter months would be ‘perfect’ for playing football.
The decision to host the Competition in Qatar has been controversial because of the sweltering conditions which could put players and fans at risk.
