The FIFA President in the years 1998-2015 Sepp Blatter believes that in connection with the corruption scandal (Qatar accused of bribing officials of FIFA) world Cup in 2022 could be moved to another country:
“Germany could host the world Cup instead of Qatar, but it will mean that the tournament for the second consecutive time will be held in Europe. In this regard, it’s not a priority.
USA can take the 2022 world Cup is the world Cup 2026. They are able to have time with training, it’s not rocket science. Japan is another option, they also fought against Qatar for the right conduct.
Fortunately, the world Cup 2022 will be only 32 teams, not 48, as previously planned. Organizational effort will not be greater than the 2018 world Cup”.
Earlier it was reported that advanced to the club world Cup will be postponed to 2022.
