As of now, the 2022 FIFA World Cup will be held in Qatar. The Arab nation was awarded the hosting rights and ever since it was announced there has been a blanket of controversy falling down over the event. Recently, Theo Zwanziger, a member of FIFA’s Executive Committee said that he didn’t think that the tournament would be held there, citing the heat of the Qatar summer as being too dangerous for players.

But Europe’s elite clubs are banding together to make an appeal to FIFA to ensure that the 2022 World Cup is played in May, but online betting site William Hill have remained dismissive of a summer finals in Qatar.

William Hill are quoting 11/2 that the first match of the 2022 World Cup is played between May and September of 2022, with the odds-on 4/7 favourite an autumn World Cup which starts in either October or November.

A December 2022 or January 2023 finals is 7-4 and it’s 16-1 the event is staged in January-April 2022.

If Qatar lose their hosting rights to the competition, then all bets on when the first match of the 2022 World Cup are played, will be void. Qatar are trading at 6/4 to keep the World Cup, with the USA being 7-4 favourites to be the ones to step in as a replacement after their failed bid for the competition.
