Today, FIFA Council's Bureau announced the decision on the dates of the 70th Congress of organization and the three World Cups.
The FIFA Confederations Working Group has carefully assessed the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the situation in the world football and has developed recommendations for a number of sports events. According to them, the FIFA Council's Bureau made the decision to approve the following new tournament dates according to further monitoring of the situation:
