'Qatar Will Not Host World Cup 2022' by Ridwan123(m): 3:37pm On Sep 22, 2014
The 2022 World Cup will not take place in Qatar due to the searing temperatures in the Arabian Peninsula, according to Fifa executive committee member Theo Zwanziger.

The former president of the German Football Association (DFB) is of the opinion that no guarantees can be provided against potential health problems for fans, despite Qatar’s plan to implement cooling technologies at stadiums, making hosting the event an unrealistic proposition. 

“I personally think that in the end the 2022 World Cup will not take place in Qatar,” Zwanziger told Sport Bild on Monday.

“Medics say that they cannot accept responsibility with a World Cup taking place under these conditions.

"They [the Qatari organisers] may be able to cool the stadiums but a World Cup does not take place only there.

"Fans from around the world will be coming and travelling in this heat and the first life-threatening case will trigger an investigation by a state prosecutor.

"That is not something that Fifa Exco members want to answer for."

However, one organisation official has declared that Zwanziger does speak for the rest of the committee and refused to comment on the German’s view.

"He is expressing a personal opinion and he explicitly says so," Fifa spokesperson Delia Fischer told Reuters. "We will not comment on a personal opinion."

President of the governing body, Sepp Blatter, previously admitted awarding Qatar the event was a mistake and organisers are now looking at moving the tournament to winter months.

The world will be hosted in Qatar or FIFA will face a lawsuit longer than the great wall of China

I hope this doesn't happen. The effect of canceling Qatar's hosting right can't even be imagined. After all the hype, fanfare, billions of dollars worth of contracts, influx of expatriates, etc? FIFA, be careful and thread carefully o

No one will die cos of the heat. This is the same heat many Europeans travel thousands of miles around the world to get during their holidays. Besides, have u heard of any European that died in Qatar because of heat? There are thousands of them in Qatar living good and comfortable lives. This is just one of the excuses to wrestle the hosting rights out of their hands. Did FIFA just suddenly wake up and discovered that Qatar is in the middle east? If the weather is their excuse then, let them fix it around the cool period so the fans can go to the stadia in jackets and sweaters lol
