Much has been said about the 2022 World Cup that is set to happen in Qatar, and now FIFA has officially CONFIRMED the dates.
For the first time in the history, 2022 World Cup in Qatar will be played in winter rather than summer from November 21 with the finale being held on December 18, exactly a week before Christmas.
Needless to say, people in Dubai have a lot to say
The 2022 #WORLDCUP is going to happen in November & December. Not sure how the rest of the world is going to feel about this.

How the schedule of the World Cup will fit with domestic leagues remains to be seen
FIFA confirm that the 2022 World Cup will be played between November 21st to December 18th In Qatar.
So what about EPL and other leagues? Will we have a full month break?
Or, we will be watching EPL and other leagues games and World Cup games at the same time?
