On Thursday, FIFA announced that the 2019 World Cup would be held in Japan, instead of in Qatar, which the 2022 tournament had originally been set to host.
The announcement came just weeks after the FIFA executive committee, which is the executive branch of the organization, voted to put the 2018 and 2022 tournaments on hold while FIFA reviews the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
On Thursday night, the FIFA Executive Committee voted to hold the 2022 event in Japan instead of the United Arab Emirates, a decision that has already triggered outrage and protests in several countries around the world.
“The decision to hold this event in Tokyo was not made lightly,” FIFA’s president Sepp Blatter said in a statement.
“We were made aware that the Tokyo 2022 tournament could not be played as planned due to the security situation in Qatar and the security challenges facing the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
In addition, the security of our guests and our staff has been an issue for the last several months.”
Blatter also said that the 2022 2022 World Cups would be moved to the second weekend in June, instead on the last weekend in October, so that the event could be held closer to the athletes.
“In accordance with FIFA’s FIFA Ethics Code, we will continue to monitor developments closely to make sure that we take all necessary measures to protect our guests, the tournament organizers and our athletes,” the statement said.
In a statement, the 2022 Rugby World Series said it would “continue to work with FIFA and our stakeholders in Tokyo, to ensure the safety and security of all the participants and spectators, as well as the media.”
But the World Cup itself is set to be held this summer in Canada, and the United States is slated to host the 2022 soccer tournament.
On Tuesday, FIFA said it was suspending the 2022 Women’s World Cup due to safety concerns, as it had not received “any formal assurance from the Japanese government or the FIFA Council on Safety and Security” that the World Cups event would not be affected.
“Given the current security situation, FIFA has decided to suspend the 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2020,” FIFA said.
“This decision does not affect the 2022 Rio de Janeiro Paralympics.
The FIFA World Congress, the governing body of the sport, will convene later this year to make a final decision on the future of the 2022 Olympics and Paralymbics.”
The 2018 Rugby tournament is scheduled to take place in 2018.
On Friday, the U.S. Olympic Committee released a statement saying it would be postponing the 2022 and 2024 Summer Olympics.
“Due to the current and growing security situation and ongoing terrorist threats, the Olympic Committee has announced that it will not be hosting the Summer Olympics in 2022 and 2020, in addition to postponing all other Olympic and World Cup events,” the Olympic committee said.
The committee said it is also postponing a number of events in its bid to host two more Winter Games in the U., namely in North America and South America, in 2022.
The U.K. Olympic Association said it had decided to postpone the 2024 Summer Games in Rio de Janes, Brazil, due to “the ongoing security situation,” and that the U,S.
and Australia had already announced they would host the Winter Games.
In the United Kingdom, the Government announced a national security alert for the summer of 2019, which will last until September.
On Wednesday, President Trump said the Olympics would not happen, even though he had promised to keep the games going in 2020.
“I have said I’m going to keep it going, I’m not going to put it on hold.
And it’s not going away,” Trump said.
