The dates of the World Cup 2022 had been pushed by a few months because of the excessive heat in the Gulf nations during June/July. Also, the playoffs for the qualifying matches of the World Cup 2022 had been delayed by FIFA due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has brought the world to a standstill. To help nations in this time of need, FIFA will distribute funds to the countries for coping up with the lack of funds needed for the preparation of the World Cup.
