Soccer Politics Blog at related • 0 views

On the heels of the news that the 2022 Men's World Cup in Qatar will be held in the winter, FIFA yesterday announced that Qatar has lost its hosting privileges for the 2021 Confederations Cup. The reason: because summers in Qatar reach an averageof 100ºF (38ºC). This fact is something the entire world has known for YEARS, is the main reason for the 2022World Cup'sswitch to November, and is one of the main reasons the general soccer community was against having the World Cup in Qatar at all (that and the whole "slave laborers"thing).
