Winter World Cup for Qatar?

The 2022 World Cup in Qatar is 3/1 with Ladbrokes to be moved to January.

Despite news emerging from FIFA the bookies still believe there is a chance the tournament may take place in Winter to avoid temperatures in excess of 40C.

Ladbrokes also quote odds of just 6/1 that a player faints whilst on the field due to excessive heat.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Pressure from the right people may see the World Cup switched as there is still plenty of time for a decision to be made. If it remains a summer tournament players fainting has to be one of the biggest risks.”
