Default Qatari funded 'Dream Football League'

The biggest clubs in the world are to be offered massive financial packages to compete in a 24-team tournament in Qatar every two years.

The Times report that the Qatari royal family will release plans next month to set up a 'Dream Football League' (DFL) involving clubs such as Manchester United and Barcelona in a direct threat to Champions League.

Qatar, who will host the 2022 World Cup, are aiming to become a major power in world football and are reported to be willing to offer each club £175million just for taking part.

To put that in perspective, Chelsea were awarded £47.3m for winning last season's Champions League.

Awful news, a Football fans worst nightmare in fact.

Well done Fifa for giving them a sniff of the action with the 2022 World Cup vote. They'll be squirming at the sight of this which will be comical I suppose.

DFL plans to hold the tournament not only in Qatar but in six cities across the Gulf, with venues in Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and possibly Saudi Arabia.
