英语新闻:FIFA确认2022卡塔尔世界杯举办时间

Date of Qatar 2022 World Cup Final Confirmed

英语新闻:

ZURICH - The final match of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar will be played on Dec 18, the country's national holiday.

FIFA spokesman Walter De Gregorio confirmed the date Thursday, but did not say when the tournament would start.

The governing body's executive committee prefers a 28-day tournament - starting Nov 21 - but did not make a decision in the opening session of its two-day meeting.

De Gregorio said the executive committee could confirm the kickoff date on Friday.


"It is a major step because finally we know and we can move forward," De Gregorio said in a hastily arranged statement at FIFA headquarters.

The November-December option was expected after being recommended by a FIFA-appointed task force which met last month in Doha, Qatar. The task force sought to take FIFA's lucrative event out of the Qatari summer heat in the June-July period when World Cups are traditionally played.

FIFA President Sepp Blatter then said he preferred a Sunday, Dec 18, final. Every World Cup final since 1966 has been played on a Sunday.


By rejecting UEFA's preferred Dec 23 final, a Friday, the FIFA executive committee helped protect the English Premier League's traditional Dec 26 program.

A 28-day World Cup, four days fewer than usual, would cut the time clubs must release players to national teams.

European clubs and leagues, which must shut down for several weeks in the middle of their seasons, have been the strongest opponents of an end-of-year tournament.

Qatar bid to stage the tournament in June-July when it was chosen as host in December 2010.

国际足联正式确认,2022年卡塔尔世界杯将于当年11月份开幕,最终的决赛将在12月18日进行。

由于卡塔尔夏季气候过于炎热,有关2022年世界杯的举办时间一直争论不休,上个月卡塔尔世界杯工作组已经在多哈召开过会议,讨论内容就是将世界杯的举办时间推迟到冬天,最终会议代表多数赞成这一提议。

今日国际足联正式确定了赛事日期,2022年世界杯将首次在11月举办,为了让球迷们可以回家欢度圣诞节,决赛将在12月18日举行,这一天也适逢卡塔尔国庆节。

此外,由于欧洲主流联赛届时激战正酣,国际足联缩短了2022世界杯的赛程,从原来的32天减至28天。
