'FIFA to move World Cup to November'

FIFA is now planning to host the 2022 World Cup in Qatar in November rather than January, a source at the governing body told kicker.

The story is too old to be commented.

that will hurt the clubs

Thanks FIFA, you are making it such a convenient experience for fans and clubs alike.

Yeah let's change everything (time of the competition, timing for the qualifications, regular seasons, etc) just so that we can have a World Cup in Quatar...

Why weren't these concerns taken into account when they awarded the tournament?

Come on Fifa, just admit you made a mistake (or, more likely, got bribed) and give the world cup to the country who was supposed to get it: USA (note: I'm Swiss, so no bias here).

If they do this then I hope lots of top players pull out and the tournament becomes an embarrassment to FIFA.

The whole idea behind the World Cup bidding process is to find the best host, if Qatar can't make it work then give it to the USA (who somehow lost) instead.
