C'mon Christmas and the World Cup! Could you think of a better combination? I think not!
And guess what!? It's not going to be in the summer. Nope for the first time ever, the World Cup will take place in the winter, and will end just a few days before Christmas.
While someone people aren't exactly best pleased that the timing of the tournament will cause havoc with the Premier League and other division around the world, we can't wait for a Christmas World Cup!
Just think about it, you're watching England getting battered by the new footballing powerhouse that has emerged... like India or Sao Tome and Principe and you're wrapping presents and drinking eggnog... wonderful!
While some people joined us in being excited for a winter World Cup, some were not so pleased and quickly took to Twitter to vent their anger.
So here are some of the best tweets about the Winter World Cup:
Cannot wait to watch the World Cup while scoffing down Ferrero Rocher and wrapping presents. #Qatar2022— Top Corner (@HITCtopcorner) September 25, 2015
"World cup in the middle of domestic season sounds like a great idea "- said NO ONE EVER! #Qatar2022 : worst thing to happen to football !!— Sadikshya Bhandari (@Sadikshya_) September 25, 2015
Love the fact the World Cup final in 2022 will be on December 18th! What a great lead up to Xmas that will be #Qatar— Ian Varley (@IanVarley9) September 25, 2015
Everyone can piss and moan but 4 weeks of World Cup right before Xmas sounds alright to me.— gf (@gflange) September 25, 2015
Would have preferred a World Cup final on Xmas Day. "What's that? I've got to watch a Tim Allen film with family? Sorry, the football's on."— Graham Ruthven (@grahamruthven) September 25, 2015
