That's going to fuck up a huge number of clubs' cashflow.

Anyway, the world will probably have gone to fuck by then - or I'll be rotting in the ground

Should imagine lower league ones will be on unless you can postpone if have 3 internationals

Tho FIFA may pressurise for all games to be off so they don't lose viewers.
Not sure on time difference but doubt games would clash anyway

Shifting the WC to the winter would 'sort of' solve the climate issue.

So how are they going to deal with the alcohol bans, homophobia, misogyny.......... They can't just ignore these things like they are ignoring the slave labour and what not.

FIFA are the govening body of world football and they will insist that all professional football closes during the WC.

I believe Qatar are 3 hours ahead of us, so most of the games will kick off early afternoon/evening UK time.

Qatar will have to allow the stadia to sell alcohol of the 'FIFA approved beer', like Brazil had to do for last year, as their government has previously banned selling alcohol in stadia.

It's more the culture clash that I'm getting at.

One can buy alcohol and stuff in Qatar and women are not expected to wear a tent etc. But they are expected to behave 'moderately'.

Football fans (men and women), in a hot climate, having a laugh, watching football, behaving 'moderately'....... There's not a fucking chance of that happening. Clashes are inevitable.

The way things are, who would really want to go to an Arab country for a high profile event.

That's going to be a fun 5 or 6 weeks then, esp if England don't qualify which I would think is a fair shout the way things are.

Good opportunity to visit a few local non-league grounds then!

Even with the general awfulness of FIFA, it's worth taking time to reflect that the next two world cups are taking place in a country which is currently invading a neighbour and threatening anyone else it feels like, and a country which is literally using slaves to build its stadia, leading to the death of thousands of human beings.

Mind boggling that this isn't losing them corporate support hand over fist. I get corruption, I really do, but I figured there might come a point where even Sepp went "You know what, I don't want to have to explain this one at the Pearly Gates, we'll give it to Australia".

And yet, the biggest outcry is likely to come from having to rearrange some domestic games. Annoying yes, but rather insignificant compared to literally killing people.

Hit the fucking nail on the head there, Nemo.

It is rather shameful that of all the objections to Qatar 2022 - the deaths of 1000s of immigrant labour seems to have been relegated further down the list in terms of importance.

So, during 2022 world cup all domestic league matches will have to be postponed (probably) to prevent clashes. For what time frame? 8 weeks?

That means that the 2022-23 season will finish 8 weeks late.

To allow the players a reasonable recovery break and a reasonable pre season, the 2023-24 season start will need to be delayed by what, 6 weeks?

That means the 2023-24 season will finish 6 weeks late.

To allow the players a reasonable recovery break and a reasonable pre season, the 2024-25 season start  will need to be delayed by what, 4 weeks/

Etc.

This is probably fairly true, all it proves in the long run is that bribery and corruption works at FIFA.
