It is looking more likely that the 2022 World Cup will be held in the USA and not Qatar, the latter originally being handed the honour of hosting the tournament. Just last month, Theo Zwanziger, a member of FIFA’s Executive Committee said that he believed that the competition would not be hosted in the Middle East.

According to a number of British bookmakers including Paddy Power, the 2022 World Cup is more likely to held in the United States than Qatar.

The USA are trading at 7/5 to host the competition, with Qatar at 2/1 and Australia out at 4/1. Qatar were awarded the rights to host the competition in 2010, but concerns over the extreme hot weather, vote fixing and workers’ conditions have led to speculation that the tournament might have to be moved. With the shorter odds coming in for the USA, who last hosted the biggest football tournament in the world back in 1994, then they are worth backing to take over the World Cup in eight years time.

The United States had put in a bid for the 2022 World Cup, which ultimately failed, but the resources and the infrastructure in the country does mean that that a switch there wouldn’t be too big of an undertaking, if Qatar do get stripped of their hosting rights.
