FIFA Holds Secret Talks With FOX Sports Over Switching 2022 Qatar World Cup to Winter: Daily Soccer Report

FIFA have held secret talks with FOX Sports regarding compensation if the 2022 World Cup is moved from summer to winter, according to a report in The Telegraph newspaper.

The newspaper reports that FIFA may be open to letting FOX pay less for the rights to the FIFA World Cup 2022 tournament if it’s moved from the summer to winter — where World Cup matches would conflict with NFL broadcasts.

The discussions between FIFA and FOX Sports “have taken place in an attempt to stave off the threat of legal action” from FOX, added the newspaper.

Broadcasters from other countries may also receive a discounted rate from FIFA to broadcast the World Cup if the tournament is moved, as is expected to be announced next month.
