Don't know how truthful this is (FIFA has moved the World Cup a number of times in their history), but it's interesting nonetheless. It looks like Qatar will lose 2022 but who will become the new host is really up in the air.

 

FIFA propose to move 2022 World Cup from Qatar to USA and Canada

 

Citation
FIFA have made a proposal to move the 2022 FIFA World Cup to USA and Canada. The hosting rights were originally given to Qatar in controversial circumstances and it has long been under the hammer of suspicion. FIFA could soon make it public that no Arab country will host the World Cup.

 

The chief governing body has put forward USA and Canada as the hosts to replace Qatar in 2022. Qatar on the other hand is still continuing with the construction of the ultra-modern stadiums for the World Cup, though it is increasingly appearing they would not be put to use anytime for the mega event. The decision to change the venue will be the first time in the World Cup’s 80-year history.

 

Qatar was in a cloud of suspicion over allegations of buying of votes and corruption during the time of voting. Mohammed bin Hammam, a former Qatari official for FIFA, paid up to $5 million to influential African leaders to garner their votes. According to reports, there is evidence that hundreds of faxes, emails and invoices were exchanged between Qatari officials and leaders around the world. Australia, one of the main contenders to the 2022 World Cup bid only registered 2 votes and were recently reported to be considering suing FIFA over the $40 million loss they incurred from the bidding process.

 

Recently, Jim Boyce, vice-president of FIFA, had confirmed a re-vote would take place if the Qatar bid was riddled with corruption saying, “If Michael Garcia, the investigating officer finds any evidence of illegal activity, we will discuss it seriously.”

 

Qatar has been subjected to strong criticism about the poor working conditions at construction sites of mostly non-Qatari people with a reported 1200 people dead and it is expected to rise to 4000. The International Trade Union Confederation had demanded the FIFA to impose a number of conditions to uphold the Qatar World Cup choice.

 

Sepp Blatter, FIFA president recognized that “it was a mistake” to choose Qatar as the venue and the international agency is very close to announce USA and Canada as venue for the event.

The Feds would definitely spend money on upgrading stadiums in this country, considering every other country that hosts the World Cup gets $$ from their government. Imagine the Big O, with its new lighting scheme, an open-air roof, a revamped interior and exterior hosting games of the World Cup? Spectacular.

 

An Expo, the Summer Olympic Games and host of the FIFA World Cup? What a trifecta. How many cities around the world have done all 3?

Notre stade est comme toutes les infrastructures, il vieillit avec le temps et aura l'entretien nécessaire pour en assurer la pérennité, FIFA ou pas. Ce serait cependant un extraordinaire coup de pouce et un incitatif puissant pour agir plus vite si jamais le Canada obtenait cette manifestation. On peut donc demeurer optimiste en sachant en même temps qu'il faudra partager la manne avec bien d'autres villes. A nous alors de tirer fort sur la couverte pour que notre part du gâteau soit à la hauteur de nos espérances.

Ce serait bien. je me demande si le Gouv. fédéral serait prêt à investir dans un nouveau toit??

 

Anyways, si c'est le Canada et les USA qui vont accueuillir la Coupe du Monde, vous pouvez être sûr que les gros matchs seront joué au USA.

Si FIFA l'enlève au Qatar c'est pour le donner à un pays qui peut l'accueillir en 5 minutes. Soit les USA qui ont zéro construction à faire et tant de stades parmi lesquels choisir.

Oui et c'est surtout que les USA ont finit 2e lors du vote des membres pour désigner le pays hôte donc logiquement l'organisation leur reviendrait. Ça serait trop génial d'avoir la coupe ici, donc le Canada serait qualifié de facto pour la compétition. :thumbsup:
