Seasons change – and so does Sepp Blatter's mind on when to hold the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
The FIFA president said the event will go on, as planned, in the summer – not long after saying the international soccer body might switch the tournament to the winter to avoid the searing heat.
Blatter told the BBC: "Everything is settled for summer. I am not in favor of one or the other.
"What I did say, (is) winter is not only January or February," Blatter added. "I think for the time being the matter is on ice."
Blatter also dismissed reports that the tournament could be split between Gulf nations.
"Everything is settled now for summer, and all 64 matches will be played in the territory of Qatar," Blatter said.
