The Qatar body responsible for overseeing the preparations for and implementation of the 2022 World Cup has convened for the first time today, on the heels of a historic recommendation that the tournament be moved to the winter months.

During this morning’s meeting, the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) presented the Tournament Operation Master Plan to FIFA and fielded questions about human rights concerns, stadium construction progress and of course, the new winter calendar.

Hassan Al Thawadi, CEO of the body, said today marked a shift from years of preparation and planning to “the delivery phase.” In a statement, he added:

“The first LOC board meeting is a symbol that this World Cup is not simply a concept for a tournament that will be held in the distant future. It is evidence that we are working every single day to deliver a unique tournament that will bring people in the Middle East together, while at the same time build bridges between East and West.”
