FIFA may still move WCup

2011-01-25 17:56

Lausanne - The 2022 World Cup in Qatar could be held at the beginning of the year or the end of it, FIFA president Sepp Blatter said on Tuesday.

"For FIFA, if there's the will to change something for the international calendar for one year, it's possible to do, because if there's a will, there's also a solution," the head of world soccer's governing body told reporters.

"For now, there are the pros and cons, but it is premature to make any decisions on what may happen. All I am saying is that winter is not only January and February, winter is also the end of the year."

Blatter has said, after Qatar in December won the right to host the finals, that the 2022 tournament could be held in the winter time to avoid the summer heat in the desert state.
