Hassan Al-Thawadi, Secretary General, Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee, is in no doubt Qatar will be ready to stage the FIFA World Cup whether it is played in the Gulf summer or winter.
“From the beginning, we’ve always said we can stage the World Cup in summer,” he said on Tuesday at the 2013 GOALS Forum held in Doha.
“The cooling system for the stadia will be very much part of our legacy. But if the football world or FIFA want it to be staged in the winter then we are happy and ready. If they want it in summer, then we are still ready.”
