The season is also expected to start one week earlier than usual (August 6) and end one week later (May 28). There will be changes in the schedule in the Champions League, where the final will be played in June. Big changes are expected in other leagues not only in Europe but all over the world.
The World Cup in Qatar will be the first to be played in the winter, namely from November 21 to December 18, 2022, and FIFA has already determined that players must be released from club obligations by November 14.
The World Cup in Qatar will be held in winter because in summer the temperatures in this country are up to 50 degrees Celsius.
