England to Organize Friendly Tournament in Qatar


The English Football Authority is in talks with the Qatari Football Authority to hold a friendly tournament in Qatar in March 2020 to prepare England’s players for the unique environment of Qatar. The tournament is expected to feature England, Qatar, and another European country.

Due to climate concerns, Qatar and FIFA have agreed to hold the 2022 World Cup in November and December, when temperatures and climate will be approximately the same as they were for the FIFA World Cup 2018, held this year in Russia. Qatar’s World Cup stadiums will also all be air conditioned with sophisticated and sustainable cooling technology.
