World Cup: Infantino confirms Qatar 2022 will hold November/December

FIFA President Gianni Infantino has affirmed that the 2022 FIFA World Cup billed for Qatar will hold between the 21st of November and 18th of December and not in the summer as it has ever been.

“The dates of the World Cup are closed. It will be played in Qatar from November 21 to December 18, 2022. The leagues are informed and will have to adapt their calendars accordingly. In the end, it is the right decision. You can not play in June and July and in November and December the players will be well prepared, because it’s almost the beginning of the season, ” Infantino said at a press conference held at Luzhniki Stadium on Friday.

“In the next few months we will meet with them and a decision will be made, for the time being, 32 teams are played and the distribution of the places is as it is.”

The President also took time to explain the expansion plan for the competition ahead the 2026 edition billed to be jointly hosted by Mexico, Canada and the United States in 2026.

“The decision was unanimous. There is more to see the teams that have been left out of this World Cup. Holland, Italy, Chile, which is the champion of South America, or Cameroon, the African champion. Croatia, which will play the final, had to go to the repechage. More participation is more quality and Mexico, the United States and Canada are going to organize a good Cup,” said Infantino.

Qatar 2022 will mark the first World Cup not to be held in May, June, or July as the competition 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, which is also Qatar National Day.

Once again, world football governing body, FIFA has made its stand clear on the situations surrounding the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF.

FIFA President, Gianni Infantino at press conference in Moscow provided the insight into FIFA’s stand while answering questions posed by Nigerian journalist, Remi Sulola of The Cable.ng.

“The Nigeria Football Federation has a president and his name is Amaju Pinnick. He has been elected. We have been very clear about that sometime ago.

“I learnt the issue has come up again. The situation is very clear. We have statues, we have regulations. It’s very clear. That can be no interference in the running of the associations.

“…Pinnick is working here (World Cup in Moscow) in official capacity…he is the president, he is the president for FIFA, the president elected by the members of the Nigeria Football Association (Federation).

“And that is the end of the story. If any other external body feels it can change the story and Nigeria risks to be banned like it happened in the other countries.

“We have processes, democratic processes that need to be respected. It is very clear and simple case
as far as we are concerned. We have stated this before”, said the FIFA president.

A FIFA ban on Nigeria will invoke the principle of prohibited contacts as stated in Art. 79 of the FIFA Statutes.

In that wise, the Falconets will forfeit their ticket to the FIFA U-20 World Cup in France next month while the September fixtures of the Super Eagles in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations shall be forfeited apart from Enyimba being thrown out of CAF Confederations Cup.

Who cares....all Pinnick have to do to remain as president NFF, is to fire Rohr.
With Rohr, Nigeria will not qualify for ANC...whichever way, you slice it - there is will no football for Nigeria

What makes you think Rohr has anything to do with the machinations of Chris Giwa and other NFF/Sports Ministry mugus gunning for Pinnick's job?

Pinnick must increase his security detail whenever he is in Nigeria.
