If it turns out that the awarding of the FIFA World Cup to respectively Russia (2018) and Qatar (2022) was corrupt, there may be rematches for the championships, says the British sports minister.

- We have to wait and see what comes out of the investigation. But if there is evidence that the application process took place in a corrupt way, then I think that the possibility of a rematch of the awarding is very big, said sports minister John Whittingdale to the Parliament on Thursday.

If Qatar, which is planned to organize the World Cup in 2022, will be deprived of the championship, it is unlikely that it will be held on the European continent, according Whittingdale.

- But if England is asked, we have the facilities needed, he stressed.

FBI has initiated a comprehensive investigation into corruption allegations against the international football federation FIFA and several of its current and former leaders. Among the cases that are investigated, is the circumstances surrounding the awarding of the World Cup in 2018 and 2022 to respectively, Russia and Qatar.
