The head of FIFA is fired. Former UEFA president is arrested. Many top-tier football representatives are being targeted by international investigators. Add to this 100 million euros in bribes. It is not a script for a new Netflix series, it’s how Qatar is getting its rights to host the most important football event in the world.
The clock is ticking and with just 3 years left it appears that it might not take place at all on the Arabian Peninsula! International public opinion is shocked by the way the 2022 World Cup host is being selected, and it is mostly up to the owners of the top European clubs, who will completely mess up their calendars due to the winter tournament.
Bookmakers are not staying aside, and Unibet
also added its 2 cents. It says that chances for sheikhs securing the right to host the event are not too high but cannot be left out.
