Re: FIFA Reply #15 – February 24, 2015, 11:35:54 am The Qatar World Cup should be played in the winter, says a Fifa committee.The Chief Executive of the EPL is "extremely disappointed" by this. Given that he isn't calling for Qatar to be abandoned altogether, that must mean he wants a summer Qatar World Cup. So - what is he concerned about? Is it the welfare of players, and supporters, going to a summer world cup? Or is it the EPL's income streams?Answers on a postcard.
