The launch of the lucrative LIV Golf series in 2022 led to the PGA Tour and DP World Tour agreeing to merge with PIF in June after a year of disruption, with PIF governor Yasir Al-Rumayyan appointed chair of the unified men's game. Qatar 2022 was switched to a winter World Cup finals in 2014, almost four years after it was awarded the hosting of the tournament. Saudi has a much richer football pedigree – the Saudi team beat eventual winners Argentina in the first game of the 2022 tournament – although most critically it would now appear to be a key ally of Gianni Infantino, the Fifa president. On Tuesday Amnesty International called on Fifa to secure "clear and binding commitments" from Saudi Arabia. WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury attracted criticism for praising Saudi officials external-link and Bin Salman before his victory over former UFC fighter Francis Ngannou in Riyadh last weekend. Despite receiving support from the Asian Football Confederation, Saudi Arabia would likely be viewed as a controversial host.

A second winter World Cup looms after the last obstacle to Saudi Arabia hosting the 2034 tournament was removed – putting Fifa at odds with European football’s most powerful national associations once more. Last week Human Rights Watch said: "The possibility that Fifa could award Saudi Arabia the 2034 World Cup despite its appalling human rights record and closed door to any monitoring exposes Fifa's commitments to human rights as a sham." He said: "Saudi is a strong bid. They have a lot of resources, and not just [for] the 2034 World Cup. A winter World Cup will, once again, require the pausing of domestic league seasons before Christmas, and the extension of those seasons into the summer. Saudi Arabian Football Federation president Yasser Al Misehal said: "Driven by a huge passion for the game by our young nation, the Saudi Arabian Football Federation is fully committed to meeting and exceeding the bid's requirements."Football 31/10/23 4:15pm Man Utd vs Newcastle: Only a matter of time until we improve, says Ten Hag The best chance for Fifa to obtain binding guarantees to protect workers' rights, ensure freedom of expression and prevent discrimination linked to the World Cup is during the host selection process - not after the hosts have been confirmed and tournament preparation has begun."

Although no final decisions have been made, and the official vote is not until next year’s Fifa Congress, there is no barrier to the second Middle Eastern World Cup finals in four editions of the tournament.
