Not many people would connect Hearts from the Scottish Premier League and Qatar the hosts of the 2022 World Cup, but Dave Mackay who passed away this week at the age of 80 would be that connection. He started his career for the Edinburgh team and ended his football career life as national coach of Qatar some 42 years later.

FIFA: 2022 World Cup to be played in November and December - originally posted on Soccerlens.com

A FIFA task force has recommended that the 2022 World Cup be changed from its traditional June/July date to be staged in November and December to fight the blistering summer heat in Qatar.

The sport's governing body invoked outrage when it awarded football's biggest tournament to the Middle Eastern nation, with temperatures in the Qatari summer passing 40C and as such risking the health of players and supporters.

No Confederations Cup for Qatar in 2021

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).

Concerns about switching World Cup 2022 to winter are overblown

World Cup Buzz at related • 1 view

I don't like the idea of a World Cup in Qatar any more than ... well, any more than about 99 percent of the globe's soccer fans, as far as I can tell.

This apparent shift to a winter event is a tourniquet that stops the bleeding on one wound opened by FIFA's controversial choice; at least we won't remember the 2022 World Cup as the one where some poor player actually bursts into flames on the field.
