Australian football chief all set to go against FIFA for their decision on 2022 World Cup, Sydney

FIFA might have to face a little trouble from Australia, over their decision of hosting 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Qatar had won the bid from countries like Australia, Japan, South Korea and United States and so it had been finalized that the World Cup would be carried out in Qatar in the month of July- August. But later on the fact that the temperature in the country at that time would be around 50 degree Celsius, FIFA decided that the game would be carried out in December.
However, Australian football Chief Frank Lowy, the billionaire owner of the Westfield shopping centre empire, has warned FIFA over its decision stating that they have made a bad situation even worse. Switching big events like this would affect clubs, investors, broadcasters, players and more important the fans. According to Lowy the other bidders along with countries with professional leagues should be compensated for this decision.
‘Our season takes place during the Australian summer to avoid a clash with other local football codes. If the World Cup were to be staged in the middle of our A-league season it would impact on our competition, not just for 2022, but to the seasons leading up to and beyond that date’, as stated by Frank Lowy.
