From stadium workers dying at an alarming rate to the expected cultural challenges, the 2022 World Cup in Qatar was already raising some very serious concerns amongst soccer fans. But now, according to FIFA vice president Michel Platini, there could be a re-vote on the tournament taking place in Qatar altogether.
"If corruption is proven, it will take a new vote and sanctions," Platini said in response to recent corruption allegations, which ironically enough involve the VP himself.
Qatari official Mohamed Bin Hammam, who is linked with Platini according to The Daily Telegraph, allegedly paid $5 million to FIFA execs to secure their vote for the 2022 tournament. An independent ethics investigation is currently looking into the bidding process, and its findings are expected to be revealed next month.
