Football: More time needed for Qatar decision, says Concacaf president
ZURICH (REUTERS) - Fifa members need more time to decide whether the 2022 World Cup should be staged outside the traditional June-July period and a decision is unlikely on Friday, Concacaf president Jeffrey Webb said on Friday.
Fifa's executive committee was meeting on Friday to discuss a proposal from president Sepp Blatter that the tournament in Qatar should, in principle, be moved to a cooler time of year.
"I don't think there will be a decision today, I don't think there should be a decision today," Webb, a Fifa executive committee member who runs the football associations from the North, Central American and Caribbean region, told reporters before the start of the meeting at Fifa headquarters.
"We definitely have not been presented with enough analysis, we don't know what the stakeholders are (thinking), so I think it would be irresponsible for us to take a decision today."
