FIFA probe into future World Cups nears endFIFA probe into future World Cups nears end
Investigators looking into the votes on where to host the 2018 and 2022 football World Cups will finish interviewing witnesses and gathering information by next week, FIFA said Monday.
It plans to submit a report detailing its findings around six weeks later, added the statement.
There have been calls to re-run the vote for 2022 if corruption allegations surrounding Qatar’s winning campaign are proved to be accurate. Britain’s Sunday Times newspaper printed what it said was evidence from internal emails showing millions of dollars were paid in bribes to secure the 2022 tournament for Qatar. Qatar strongly denies the allegations.
Russia will hold the 2018 tournament.
