SPORT: UEFA BACK TASKFORCE TO HAVE 2022 WORLD CUP HELD IN WINTER
UEFA has backed the FIFA taskforce recommendation that the 2022 World Cup in Qatar be held in November and December.
European football’s governing body says it sees no major issues in rescheduling its competitions.
However, Premier League executive Richard Scudamore says he’s “very disappointed” at the taskforce’s decision.
FIFA’s executive committee will have the final decision on the tournament’s staging next month.
