PARIS (AP) — Europe's top leagues have stated opposition to changing the 2022 Qatar World Cup dates from summer to winter.

The European Professional Football Leagues group says "all scenarios on the rescheduling of the World Cup in Qatar are damaging the domestic competitions and leagues' business interests."

Top-tier leagues face an eight-week midseason break if the World Cup kicks off in November, which is the suggestion of FIFA President Sepp Blatter.

Members of the EPFL board met Thursday and reiterated its view to keep the summer date. Blatter has set March as a deadline to decide the tournament dates.
