Cant see this happening. Thge world cup will definitely have to be moved to the winter and that means at least a 2 month winter break with the season finishing in July. Playing it in summer is out of the question. Even with air conditioned stadiums teams will have to train in 50 degree heat. Fans will drop like flies. There would certainly be deaths from the heat. No alcohol outside of hotels either.  Its just ridiculous. Do you think its anyway possible FIFA and Qatar will see sense and say look this isnt realistic?Confused Can you imagine England fans in Qatar? LOL

Mercury Engineering won't be happy if they decide to change it to the winter. How will domestic club competitions be altered to suit? I mean wouldn't there be a knock on effect for the following season?

 Well it can happen but jesus it will be a disaster. There will be deaths amongst fans if it goes ahead in summer.  So looks like it will go ahead in winter which means fooking up the whole footballing calendar worldwide.

He doesn't sit on the fence anyway. Same as Merson. I'd love a few pints with the both of them. There wouldn't be a fence in sight.

fifa can deffo move it to winter, just another way of proving their power over the domestic leagues, its years away , its easily done to split the seasons , actually the standard might be higher as the teams will not be tired after a full season

Players' union FIFPro has backed the idea of staging the 2022 World Cup in Qatar in January in a bid to beat the humid Middle East weather.

The international players' union has backed calls to play the 2022 World Cup in Qatar in the the British winter instead of June and July - and claimed that players will be in better shape at that time of year.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter and general secretary Jerome Valcke have both thrown their weight behind moves to stage the tournament in January to avoid the heat problems.

Summer temperatures in Qatar can top 50 degrees C and players' union FIFPro said they are pleased at FIFA's willingness to consider changing the timing to winter.

Tijs Tummers, secretary of FIFPro's technical committee, said: "We will have to take a careful look at the international match calendar, but FIFPro does not foresee any insurmountable problems in this regard.

"Space will have to be made for the tournament, even though many countries already have a winter break.

"In Europe, competitive matches will have to be played in August and the second half of May and the first half of June. If you look at what happened last weekend with weather problems in Europe because of heavy snowfall, you could see this as an advantage rather than as a problem.

"And it might perhaps turn out that the players will be fitter at the start of a winter World Cup than was the case last summer at the World Cup in South Africa."

Tummers questioned the decision by FIFA to have awarded Qatar the tournament based on playing in the summer.

He added: "It is not sensible to award a World Cup in the summer to a country with an average temperature of 41C in June and July, a midday temperature of 50C and above all, extremely high humidity.

"Tourists are advised not to travel to Qatar in the summer months. Inhabitants of Qatar leave the country en masse during this period. The summer months in Qatar also do not provide suitable conditions for a festival of football such as the World Cup should be, including for the supporters.

"The organisers have guaranteed that the temperature inside the stadiums and at the training centres will be reduced to 27C by means of air-conditioning.

"That is all well and good, but it obviously does not fit in with ecological thinking, which we expect to be even more widespread by 2022."

Qatar bid chiefs have insisted that their air conditioning of stadiums and training grounds would be 'carbon neutral' as it would be based on solar energy

The stupidity of FIFA is extremely hard to believe, it honestly is. The fact that Qatar even managed to be nominated let alone win this bid shows you what a corrupt bunch of ****s FIFA are.

Lads I just did a bit of research on Qatar there that you may or may not know but is totally shocking.
 
The size of Qatar is smaller than the area of County Cork and County Kerry combined.  Qatar has an area off 11,437 sq miles. This is less than these 2 counties combined!!!!  Qatar has only 1 city-Doha! Doha plans to have 6 stadiums! What a fookin joke!
 
It boggles the mind the corruption of FIFA. It has to be the worst decision EVER to award this corrupt, brutal regime the world cup.  Its absolute madness!

Thanks for that TJ, but could you please amend that comparison to the size of Cork City, otherwise Johnny CCTV wont be able to understand it. I for one, am looking forward to the inevitable public thrashings/stonings of Aido M and Sligo Hornet should we qualify...

Seriously though this is a farce of biblical proportions. Imagine the chaos this world cup is going to generate.
 
Problems:
 
1. Country is not big enough to hold a world cup
2. Only 1 airport in Qatar
3. Only 1 city in Qatar
4. Massive massive shortage of hotel rooms
5. No infrastructurein place and any built will be almost without usage after the world cup e.g. secondary airports in the middle of nowhere
6. Doha to have 6 host stadiums in a small city!! Are u having a laugh!
7. Strict muslim laws allow no public displays of flesh e.g. wives/girlfriends, no alcohol outside of hotel, no pubs, sexual relations outside of marriage is illegal so forget bringing the girlfriend as you may not be allowed to room with her!
8. Never mind all the other strict laws, and harsh punishments!!
 
This is a farce! I cant get my head around the stupidity and blatent corruption of fifa with that heap of sh*te as head of it.  Its a disaster waiting to happen!

No as far as I know the law applies to all. Both residents and visitors.  Yes hotel rooms wil be built by slave labour as will a white elephant airport that will never be used after the world cup.  Railways will have to be built also but again these  are minor points.   Qatar is a TINY country. Way smaller than the Republic of Ireland. It is smaller than cork and kerry combined. Think about that. Imagine having to fit 12 world cup stadiums in that area! Now to make matters worse imagine only 1 small city in that area.  Imagine Cork City hosting 6 world cup stadiums coz thats the scale we're looking at! Imagine 12 sets of fans mingling together in this small city! Imagine the English with Turks, with Polish and Russians etc... all mingling together!  Qatars other 'towns' are literally fishing villages! Apparently Doha and these places are extremely boring for tourists. Now imagine no pubs/bars (a fans village hopefully will be built but who knows?)  This is a disaster in terms of feasibility and all logic! rumour has it Sepp hasjust added another 3 storeys onto his house.

There is 1 nightclub in Doha in which you have to be staying in its attached 5 star hotel. No fans will be staying there. Being drunk in public=imprisonment. showing a bit of leg for women = deportation/imprisonment and abuse from natives. All in all sounds like a barrel of laughs.

I cant see this world cup going ahead in qatar. Its been clear from the start that its a total farce. They bought the world cup without thinking it through. The country is tiny, as i said smaller than cork and kerry combined. The weather is a joke so it has to be plyed in january and now they say 'Oh it will be a world cup of the gulf.Its like they ARE ONLY REALISING IT IS A FARCE NOW FFS. Its obvious they are improvising as they go along.  Like had they not thought of the fookin logistics and infrastructure until now?? So now they are dependent on other nations and their co-operation which may or may not happen seeing as it depends on other countries wanting the world cup and expense they would have to incur. Now one of the Qatar bid people is saying they dont want to share the world cup! This is the biggest fookin joke of all time!! 
 
Seriously lads imagine Cork and Kerry launched a world cup bid of their own. Imagine no fookin decent roads or cities. Imagine stifling heat. Thats what the Qatar world cup bid is like.  People dont understand how small this country is.

According to the Wall Street Journal money might have had a little influence all right

Qatar's World Cup Spending Spree

Working Within FIFA Rules, Emirate's Bid Committee Paid Celebrities, Expanded Soccer Academy


By http://topics.wsj.com/search/term.html?KEYWORDS=MATTHEW+FUTTERMAN&bylinesearch=true - MATTHEW FUTTERMAN

Qatar's winning bid to hold the 2022 World Cup was marked by a spending spree that included investments in the home countries of several executives who were responsible for choosing the host nation, according to internal documents from the emirate's bidding committee.

The spending sheds light on how FIFA regulations—outlined in the two-page rules of conduct for World Cup host-nation bidding—left the door open for hopefuls to open wallets to exert indirect influence on international soccer's small circle of decision-makers.

Qatar also paid soccer-world luminaries from France, Spain, Argentina and elsewhere who publicly endorsed its bid, according to Qatar bid committee documents and emails reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. Some were paid more than a million dollars in connection with the endorsements, said a person familiar with the situation.

The documents don't show that Qatar violated the rules set down for World Cup host-nation bidding by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association, or FIFA, which in December chose host nations for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups. Rather, they highlight how Qatar worked within FIFA's broad guidelines to win what was initially seen as a quixotic quest to host international soccer's marquee event.

FIFA bidding rules bar prospective hosts from promising favors or gifts to FIFA executives or their representatives. But the rules don't address whether would-be hosts can invest in the home countries of these executives, who, using secret balloting, determine the host of what is arguably the world's most lucrative sporting event.

FIFA's decision to award the World Cup to Qatar capped a scandal-plagued campaign that included allegations that the Qatar committee and Spain-Portugal's 2018 bid committee colluded to trade support from Africa for support from Spanish and Portuguese-speaking countries for the committees' respective bid years. The committees said the allegations weren't true. FIFA's ethics body didn't punish the bid committees, saying it didn't find sufficient grounds to warrant punishment.

An official speaking on behalf of the Qatar bid committee and its chairman, Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad al-Thani of the Qatar royal family, said Qatar did nothing wrong throughout the bid process.

A FIFA representative said its regulations ensured a fair and ethical competition. "FIFA has established clear rules of conduct for the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cup bidding process, which are also public and available on FIFA.com," the body said in a statement. "The bidding process has been supervised by FIFA's Ethics Committee since the beginning and this Committee acted whenever necessary."

Qatar bid-committee documents outlined how the emirate expanded the activities of a Qatar-based soccer-training academy—Aspire Academy for Sports Excellence, also controlled by the Qatar royal family—into a total of 15 countries world-wide.

One bid-committee document from 2009 states plans to expand grass-roots soccer training in Nigeria and to "build a football academy in Thailand emulating the Aspire Football Dreams Academy in Senegal."

Both Thailand and Nigeria had representatives on FIFA's executive committee who, at the time the document was produced, could provide Qatar with two of the 13 votes it would need on Dec. 2, 2010, to secure hosting rights.

Thailand is home to executive committee member Worawi Makudi. According to people familiar with the FIFA's secret balloting, Mr. Makudi voted for Qatar in the final round.

In keeping with FIFA's rules on confidentiality, Mr. Makudi declined to confirm which country received his vote, but said it had nothing to do with the Thailand Football Dreams program referred to in Qatar's bid documents. "I don't know about this" Qatari plan to build an academy in Thailand, he said in late December, adding that Asian countries often send their best players to Qatar to train. "There is no deal about it at all."

According to the Qatar documents, in 2009, Aspire continued its work in 10 African countries through the Football Dreams program, three of which—Cameroon, Ivory Coast and Nigeria—were home to executive committee members. Executives from Ivory Coast and Cameroon didn't return messages seeking comment. The Nigerian executive declined to comment.

In all, six of the 15 countries singled out by Qatar for Aspire expansion—or 40%—were home to FIFA executives. Internationally, by comparison, FIFA's two dozen executive committee members account for about 12% of its 208 member associations.

Qatar says programs have been held in the countries discussed. The Thailand academy has yet to be built. In a statement, Phil Hall, chairman of a London-based PHA Media, which is representing Qatar2022, said the group is proud of Aspire's academies and programs across the world. "Inevitably some are in countries which are the home of executive committee members and many are not," he said. "At no time were they established to secure votes."

Many in the international soccer community were dubious that FIFA would bring its flagship event to Qatar, which has an average summertime high temperature of more than 100 degrees Fahrenheit and needed an estimated $50 billion in new infrastructure to host the event. Qatar's victory was criticized by Australian, U.K. and U.S. officials, whose bids for 2018 or 2022 were rejected though all received stronger scores for their technical or financial attributes from FIFA consultants.

Qatar officials say the criticism is a result of misconceptions and prejudices against the Middle East.  FIFA has said bringing the World Cup to new lands is central to its mission to expand soccer internationally.

Last week, FIFA President Joseph "Sepp" Blatter said due to the extreme temperatures he expects the 2022 tournament to be held in the winter, breaking with the 90-year tradition of holding the cup during international soccer's traditional off-season.

Confidential Qatar committee bid documents reviewed by the Journal also show that on one occasion, Qatar bid officials and their advisers discussed circumventing a FIFA request, made in a letter to bid committees, not to hold high-profile events during the FIFA World Cup.

In a Jan. 4, 2010, strategy meeting, several top bidding committee executives discussed the need to improve Qatar's standing within the world soccer community by helping South Africa's poor during the 2010 World Cup there. "If FIFA regulations prevent these initiatives then a way has to be found to do these under a different name (e.g. through the embassy or as the State of Qatar)," minutes from the meeting state.

Qatar2022 spokesman Mr. Hall described the minutes as "an expression of strategic thought" and denied the committee attempted to circumvent FIFA rules. "We did not want the projects we planned to support to suffer because they may have been thought to be in contravention of FIFA rules," Mr. Hall said in a statement. "We subsequently concluded that any help from any Qatar organization could be misconstrued and they were NOT followed through."

FIFA regulations don't limit how much prospective bidders can spend. But a 2010 budget document reviewed by the Journal shows Qatar's bid committee had budgeted $43.3 million for marketing and event-related spending for that single year, a figure that hadn't previously been made public.

Qatar declined to disclose its total expenditure for the bid.

By comparison, the Australian government, which financed that country's effort, put its overall tab at $45 million for two years. U.S. bid officials said their campaign cost about $10 million, not counting in-kind contributions for such items as legal services and office space. A spokesman for Russia's successful 2018 bid said the country spent about $30 million, half from private sources and half from the government.

To talk up Qatar's quest, the nation hired an international slate of "bid ambassadors," including French star Zinedine Zidane, according to bid-committee documents. The endorse- ments were important, FIFA officials say, because they helped Qatar establish its legitimacy within FIFA and connections to executive committee members. 

The FIFA rules on cup bidding don't address such payments. The U.S. and U.K. bid committees said they didn't pay celebrities who endorsed or worked on behalf of their bids.

A 2009 document called "Scope of Work for Zinedine Zidane," one of several ambassador documents reviewed by the Journal, proposed paying Mr. Zidane €900,000 ($1.17 million) for a series of appearances and €5,000 for each interview. Mr. Zidane received $3 million in all for his endorsement, a person familiar with the Qatar bid said.

In Qatar's public bid brochure, published last year, Mr. Zidane is quoted saying that what the youth of the Middle East are missing "is an event like the World Cup."

Mr. Zidane couldn't be reached for comment through representatives. A spokesman for Qatar said: "These were confidential arrangements and thus I am unable to comment except to say the figures do not accurately reflect what our ambassadors were paid."

I wonder could we sell them some of ours...
 
Qatar have developed artificial clouds to provide shade for stadiums and training grounds at the 2022 World Cup.

The extreme heat in summer months in the Middle Eastern country has led to concern about conditions at the tournament, with some suggesting it should be played in the winter.

Qatar say they will air condition the stadia via solar power and now scientists at Qatar University have designed the 'cloud' which can be produced at a cost of US dollars 500,000 each.

Saud Abdul Ghani, head of the mechanical and industrial engineering department, told Gulf News the 'clouds' are made from a lightweight carbon structure carrying a giant envelope of material containing helium gas. Four solar powered engines move the structure via remote control.

Medical reports could see winter Qatar World Cup, says Fifa

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/21644726#dna-comments" rel="nofollow -
- -

The http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-15202695" rel="nofollow - 2022 World Cup in Qatar could be moved to winter if medical reports show summer temperatures in Qatar would be dangerously high, a senior Fifa official has admitted.

Football's world governing body has always maintained that Qatar would have to make the request to move the tournament.

But speaking at the meeting of the International Football Association Board - the body that governs the laws of football - in Edinburgh, general secretary Jerome Valcke became the first senior Fifa official to say the event could be moved if they receive strong medical advice that it needs to do so.

He said: "Maybe the Fifa Exco [executive committee] will say based on medical reports or whatever: 'We really have to look at playing the World Cup not in summer but in winter.'"

The idea to move the competition away from its traditional start date in June http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/16004787" rel="nofollow - - when temperatures in the Middle East can reach 50C - has previously been backed by http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/16004787" rel="nofollow - Uefa leader Michel Platini and http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/9310671.stm" rel="nofollow - world footballers' union FIFPro.

Fifa president Sepp Blatter's position has given varying views on the issue. In January 2011 he said he http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/9297416.stm" rel="nofollow - expected the competition to begin in the winter, but he then http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/9387891.stm" rel="nofollow - backtracked on that comment a month later.

To allay possible health fears, officials from the emirate have also said that they intend to use air-conditioned stadiums and are researching http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/9435035.stm" rel="nofollow - the potential to create artificial clouds.

It has previously been argued that any decision on moving to a winter date would have to be made by 2014 in order to give national leagues and competitions sufficient time to reorganise their calendars.

However, Valcke believes that the timeframe for any decision could be extended to 2015.

"I am not saying that the case is closed but what I'm saying is as long as we have not fixed the international calendar all alternatives are open," he continued.

"I can tell you there is no working group within Fifa thinking and working on what it means to move the World Cup from summer to winter for the time being.

"The international calendar has been agreed for 2015 to 2018, meaning that we kept open all potential for the period 2019 to 2022. We have time.

"I think it would be good to have a final decision about when this World Cup will be played and have an agreement between all the football family, but it's in 2022, nine years, and we have two World Cups to organise in Brazil and Russia, so there is some time."

''The concerns over the climate for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup are incorrect and illinformed.  Due to the much anticipated global warming that is due to occur in the latter half of this decade the gulf stream will be thrown off its course and the whole of the northern hemisphere will be cooled an average of 20 degrees celcius thus reducing the average summer temperature in Qatar to a pleasant 21 degrees. We anticipate a successful World Cup in Qatar and a great festival of no alcohol, strict living and beheadings.''

Never mind the AC in the stadia. They will need to dig an amazing tunnel system fo us pasty uefa lads to stay out of the 50C sun.
 
There'll be no drinking in the square, booting a ball around at this one.
 
f**king madness.
 
What's the pickpocket situation like there? I guess BSM might know?

And no, I don't mean the stadium isn't built yet, the CITY doesn't even exist yet!

UEFA members have back the proposal to move it to the winter  Thumbs Down 
 
Hope the Aussies,Yanks and Koreans  sue the f*cking hole off FIFA. They bidded on the premise that the WC was to be held in June/July as did Qatar. Qatar evidently aren't capable of doing so due to the weather conditions so should be stripped of the tournament and a re-vote between the USA,Aus and Korea should take place.

Yeh I don't get this. There's been all this talk about switching it to the winter and FIFA say things like it definitely can't be held in the summer in Qatar and the Premier League opposing it. FIFA say well there's nothing else we can do, it can't be held in the summer yet the Premier League or any other association haven't come out and say well yeh there is, you could take the f**king thing off Qatar!! They won the vote for a summer World Cup and can't deliver on it. Therefore it should be between the other countries who were involved and who can deliver a summer World Cup. Why does no one come out and say this??? There seems an acceptance that it has to be in Qatar no matter what.

Ahh heya!

Has an April-May tournament being examined, as a sort of compromise solution?

The 50c is a nice headline figure, but it rarely hits it. Even in Kuwait the max temperature in high summer is rarely above 45c. And as most games will be played at night anyway, it won't be 50 at ko. Rovers played in Belgrade in 35c and won, so something in the 35-40c range is playable, and watchable.

Playing there in April-May is cooler, and easier for other leagues to accept. They can either finish their leagues earlier, or work around them, as happens in rugby.

I agree it is something FIFA should have thought about before awarding the World Cup to Qatar but it is 9 years away.

Most leagues should be able to organise something so it doesn't affect them so much.
 
The Majority European leagues have winter breaks anyway, all they have to do is perhaps start season month earlier say Early July and then finish them in later mid/late June.
 
If the EPL followed suit they shouldn't have any issue

It was nearly 50C (120F) in Orlando in 94 when we played the Mexicanos.
Horrible experience on and off the pitch.
500 Irish fans carried out of there that day.

Well if they decide to have it in november or january its a bit of a pain for most people
World cup should always be june/july. 
It was a decision made by Fifa on money purposes solely. They should feel the full force of all european leagues who I hope refuse to release players

That country is not suitable for tourists. Too strict a regime for people to have fun. Plus getting holidays in January is a pain for fans. Its going to be a sh*te world cup in a sh*te country. Its only there because of bribes.

FIFA telling the fans to drink loads of water.
Water taken off the fans entering the stadium and told you can buy water inside.
I know Anericans are fat obese kunts but Coca-Cola is not water.
As you know caffeine de-hydrates.

Caffeine does not dehydrate as much as you take in, though, not even close. You have to drink something like 8 cups of regular coffee before it dehydrates you 1 cup of water more than drinking 8 cups of water would.

How much caffeine is in a gigantic American sized bucket of Coke ????

Even less than a gigantic American sized bucket of coffee. Coke is not full of caffeine. Quite a small amount honestly.

I am still very optimistic Qatar will be stripped of the World Cup.  Alot of years yet for the dirty politics to become public and everyone will know how shambolic the decision was based on bribery and when it does it's bye bye Qatar.

Google tells me there is 30-35mg of caffeine on 12oz of Coke.
Slightly less than an expresso.
