We can expect a lot less Christmas shopping to be done in four years time as FIFA has confirmed that the 2022 World Cup will take place from November 21 to December 18.

The tournament is set to be hosted in Qatar and has been moved to the winter due to soaring summer temperatures in the country.

The news is sure to have a detrimental affect on most European club leagues during the 2022/2023 season and a lot of people have come out to criticise the news online.

A month of footy over some mulled wine and mince pies. What do you make of the move? Let us know in the comments.
