Qatar gets 2022 World Cup: Update II

There is a movement starting that thinks maybe the World Cup in Qatar should be held in December or January, when the weather is cooler.  This would mean changes to the European football schedule.  A plus for holding the Cup in winter is that different countries would be available for hosting, since winter in the northern hemisphere is summer in the southern hemisphere.  The president of FIFA also met with representatives for Oman, Bahrain, and Kuwait; these countries could help host the games.  Qatar would have to be the one requesting it though.
