2022 FIFA World Cup Temperature Problems

Medical committee chairman Michel D’Hooghe will advise FIFA that the extreme heat of the Qatari summer poses too great a risk to supporters.
“The World Cup is about more than games and players,” said D’Hooghe. “I am sure the Qataris have the technical skill to organize a tournament where teams could play and train in a stable, acceptable temperature, but it’s about the fans.
“They will need to travel from venue to venue and I think it’s not a good idea for them to do that in temperatures of 47C or more.”
The topic of when the 2022 World Cup will be played remains one of great debate.
