Twitter rage has commenced after talks of moving the 2022 World Cup date in Qatar. FIFA has announced that the 2022 World Cup being moved to December is about to happen, and this is not sitting too well with UK followers because it will clash with England’s Christmas events.
#qatar2022 is trending in Twitter right now since the news went live, and Twitter users are sending in their tweets of utter disgust.
Apparently the November / December decision was made because if they held the World Cup in Qatar in January or February this would clash with the Winter Olympics, April was out of the question as well because this is the month of Ramadan, and between May and September it is way to hot with temps hitting around 40 degrees.
One Twitter user said it was all madness, why on earth should this go ahead. Can you just imagine a World Cup final just before Christmas Day?
A meeting will be held on March 19 and 20 in Zurich, where FIFA’s executive committee will make a decision. Some tweets have been rather harsh, one said that FIFA is 100% corrupt, surely the best thing to do is to move it somewhere else. Another said to pull out of Qatar right now and decide another venue.
What are your views on the 2022 World Cup date in Qatar being moved?
