Impossible you say? Not in Qatar, where everything is possible. And FIFA agrees!
The information I got from wiki, if it is reliable, is that Qatar could miss the world cup 2022 if evidence of bribery is proven

An interesting article regarding Qatar hosting the world cup: http://www.thesaint-online.com/2014/...tar-is-a-joke/

I'll believe it when I see it. I can set it in the air conditioned desert. I don't understand though your reference to 4 1/2 years though if you aren't referring to shifting it to the winter.


Jimbuna's link is old, but still on point. I'd like to see an article with the same slant but with the following four years worth of scandal, human rights violations, corruption and bribery amended.


I love the World Cup, but if ever I would not mind if it was a complete failure and farce it will be 2022. It's been a sham since day one, and how fitting for it all to come home to roost.

In the same link I posted

Quote:
This will also mark the first World Cup not to be held in May, June, or July; the tournament is instead scheduled for late November until mid-December. It is to be played in a reduced timeframe of around 28 days, with the final being held on 18 December 2022
So this must mean there is about 4½ years to the next World Cup.
