The English Premier League is not happy with FIFA’s possible ratification of a November/December World cup in 2022.
A task force that was set up by FIFA recommended that the tournament run from November 26 to December 23, a decision the Premier League is angered by.
Premier League chief Richard Scudamore on Monday expressed his anger at the decision. He said: ‘Yeah, very disappointed that`s the word, I think, on behalf of the all the European leagues and particularly the European clubs who provide most of the players for this World Cup.’
The task force was convened after it became apparent that dangerous summer temperatures in Qatar in summer 2022 would make it unsafe for the players and fans.
