Players Union gives thumbs up for January World Cup in Qatar

FIFPro, the international players' union, have declared their support for the concept of holding the 2022 World Cup in January, rather than June and July.

The tournament, due to be held in Qatar, was destined to face heat problems with the Qatari summer often hitting temperatures of 50 degrees centigrade, heats that most players will never have experienced.

The story is too old to be commented.
