Vice-President of FIFA Victor Montellano said that there is the option of the football season according to the scheme “spring–autumn”:
“We have already started to think about the new football calendar. When the crisis is over, we need to take immediate decisions. There is an opportunity to think about how to reform football not only in Europe but also worldwide, to improve the situation from the point of view of dates.
And the system “spring–autumn” can be a good idea. This will be a discussion, especially with the confederations and federations. We have the opportunity, because the world Cup 2022 in Qatar will be played in November and December.
In North America are already playing at one season per calendar year. Perhaps this decision can also be applied in Europe and Africa. There is opportunity for discussion at the national and continental level. It is not an idea which must immediately be discarded. This approach can be a good solution given the following two years the winter world Cup 2022″.
We will remind, earlier the pandemic coronavirus was postponed Euro 2020, which will now be held in the summer of 2021. The world Cup in Qatar will be held at the end of 2022.
