FIFA sets up Qatar 2022 commission

FIFA has taken the first step towards holding the 2022 Qatar World Cup in the winter after president Sepp Blatter announced the setting up of a commission to look into moving the tournament from the summer.

FIFA's executive committee has set up the commission which will not report back until after next year's World Cup, and a final decision on the timing may not be made until 2015.

Blatter made the announcement during a press conference in Zurich at which he also addressed the issue of the rights of workers engaged in working on the infrastructure in Qatar ahead of the World Cup.
