It looks as though families up and down the country will be swapping sledges for football’s and Buble for Beckham during the run up to Christmas 2022 as the World Cup has been scheduled to air live during the most festive months of the year – November and December.
Even though it’s still a looong way off, experts and fans are already speculating that a Winter World Cup may be difficult to pull off – with different climates at that time of the year. However this will mean Footballers in the UK may actually get the festive period off.
UEFA this morning have also now backed Fifa’s recommendations to move the World Cup to the suggested Nov/Dec dates, with fans and players now awaiting the final decision by the FIFA Executive Committee in March.
For those who are not so merry about football, questions are already being posed as to what Xmas specials will be bumped to different channels or not even airing at all because of the World Cup?!
