FIFA proposed to hold football tournaments on the “spring-autumn” system

FIFA Vice-President Victor Montagliani said that holding the European football season during the calendar year (according to the “spring-autumn” system) can be one of the options for resolving the situation related to the coronavirus pandemic and the suspension of football tournaments that arose in connection with it.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup is due to be held in Qatar in November-December.

“In America, the season is already held by the calendar year; perhaps this is a solution that can be used in Europe and Africa, this possibility will be discussed at the national and continental level. This idea should not be discarded; it may be a solution, given the next two years and the winter world Cup (in Qatar),” Montagliani said, as cited by Reuters.
