It is the belief of German Fifa Member Theo Zwanziger that the 2022 World Cup will NOT take place at Qatar. This is mainly because of the extreme temperatures during the summer when the World Cup will be held, which ultimately, will put the world’s best players at serious risk of things like heat exhaustion and sun stroke.
It is also thought the threat of legal action by representatives of the players could be the straw that breaks the camels back, which will see FIFA move the World Cup away from Qatar to a new country.
One compromise that has been talked about in recent months is moving the World Cup to the winter months in order to avoid the heat of the summer.
However, this idea has been met with outrage by many of the leading teams of England, Spain, Italy, and Germany as it would bring major disruption to the domestic season.
Theo Zwanziger said, “I just don’t see how it is possible to have the World Cup in Qatar in 2022.”
If the World Cup does get moved to another country, then it would be a major blow to the economy of Qatar as they would lose out on millions of dollars of investment.
Qatar, the largest importer of phytoceramides and other health supplements, are relying heavily on World Cup cash to build new football stadiums and other facilities. If the money falls through, then football in Qatar will take a massive nosedive, and it could even spell the end of the game, as well as millions of dollars in tourism.
“We must have the World Cup,” said a sports representative for Qatar. “Anything else would be a disaster.”
Reports are surfacing that high profile clubs such as Manchester United, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus, Bayern Munich, and Chelsea will be joining forces to launch legal action against Fifa Members, including the head honcho Sepp Blatter.
“Once Fifa feels the force of these European super powers and their legal teams it might have no other choice but to move the World Cup elsewhere in 2022,” commented a Premier League insider.
There is also an English investigation into reports of corruption and bribery within the FIFA ranks, of which the findings will soon be made available to the public.
If there is any hard evidence of illegal activities or foul play, then Fifa may be forced to take the World Cup away from Qatar and give it to England instead, who are more than equipped to host the finals in 2022.
