Infantino rules out the idea of Qatar 2022 without fans

Despite the fact that Qatar 2022 is still two years away, the current situation surrounding the covid-19 pandemic has the whole world concerned about whether or not supporters will be able to attend the first football World Cup to be held in the Middle East.

So, as a final decision on the matter is eagerly awaited, the idea of having no fans there appears to have already been ruled out.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino confirmed during his statements that it is unlikely that the 2022 FIFA World Cup will be held in Qatar without the presence of the fans,

with the tournament being held for the first time in the winter season from 21 November to 18 December 2022.

“I cannot imagine the Qatar 2022 World Cup without fans, because playing a competition the size of the World Cup without spectators is almost no point in having, causing us big issues, and there is no doubt that the next World Cup will definitely be held in Qatar. We have sufficient time in order to contain the coronavirus pandemic, and the global community will have done this by winter 2022.

“At the present time the crisis threatens football and for the first time since World War II, football competitions around the world have been stopped. The situation has been very difficult, especially for those countries that depend on the income of fans attending.”

In addition to talk of the World Cup Infantino also discussed the current investigation into him.

“With regards to the investigations I have been subjected to by the Swiss prosecutor and other matters related to broadcasting rights and the granting of the World Cup in Russia 2018 and Qatar 2022, I reject these accusations and the allegations of the Swiss authorities because they are harming people’s reputations without any evidence. It is just nonsense.”
