Qatar verdict in September or October

FIFA will announce the results of the investigation into the bidding for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups in September or October.

The BBC report that after that, the governing body will consider the matter dealt with amid claims of corruption in Qatar’s successful bid to host the 2022 World Cup.

Qatar deny all allegations, including those made in the past weeks by the Sunday Times.

Michael Garcia, an American lawyer, is conducting an independent investigation that will conclude in July.

He is to speak at the FIFA congress – which begins on Tuesday – and will provide delegates with an update on the case, Sepp Blatter has said.
