Sepp Blatter Qatar winning envelope

Overview

  • Winner: Sepp Blatter
  • Runner Up: UEFA
  • Stadiums: 8-12
  • Teams: 32
  • Date: 21st November - 18th December 2022

The 2022 World Cup is set to take place in Qatar which will be the first to take place in the Middle East and first in Asia since the 2002 World up hosted by Japan and Korea.

If you thought Russia 2018 was controversial then you haven’t seen anything yet, with numerous concerns made about the fairness of the bidding process with allegations of corruption, the intense heat of the desert climate which is at its zenith in June/July and reports of slave-labour camps set up to construct the stadiums with hundreds of deaths already reported. And confusion about the availability of alcohol.

Stay tuned on this one, but Uncle Blatter is a stubborn man and it is unlikely that the hosts will change, even with Fifa supposedly exploring contingency options such as the United States of America.
