President of FIFA Gianni Infantino has confirmed the dates of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
The governing body have chosen to move the tournament to the more cooler winter months, with a November 21 start date.
Fascinatingly, this means the Qatar World Cup will fall in the middle of the normal domestic schedule for the majority of European club sides.
To offset this, the tournament is scheduled to be held over a reduced time frame of 28 days as oppose to the normal 30 days.
The 2022 World Cup final is going to be played on December 18, which coincidentally is also Qatar National Day.
