UEFA president, Gianni Infantino, really hopes that the 2022 World Cup can take place with fans in the stand. "I can't imagine a World Cup without people in the stadiums", he said.

FIFA informed on Tuesday that their president, Gianni Infantino, had tested positive for coronavirus. The president, who has light symptoms, was completely isolated.

Infantino, in some words collected by 'AS', spoke about the possibility of there not being fans at the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

"I cannot imagine the Qatar 2022 World Cup without fans, because playing a competition the size of the World Cup without spectators is almost no point in having", he opined.

Gianni Infantino said that there is still a lot of time until 2022, but the coronavirus situation doesn't stop being a threat.

"We have sufficient time in order to contain the coronavirus pandemic, and the global community will have done this by winter 2022. At the present time, the crisis threatens football and for the first time since World War II, football competitions around the world have been stopped", he concluded.
