FIFA / Qatar cock up. or Reply Privately

Hope no one was ticking the new Educational City Stadium in Qatar.

'Qatar’s Education City Stadium will not host matches during the FIFA Club World Cup this month after the official opening of the venue was postponed until early 2020, soccer’s world governing body said on Saturday.
FIFA said the construction of the stadium was complete and the venue was operational but the necessary certification processes took longer than expected and the stadium was unable to host test events at full capacity prior to the tournament.
The Education City Stadium was due to host three games in the Dec. 11-21 event, including a semi-final involving European champions Liverpool on Dec. 18 as well as the third-place playoff and the final.
The 45,416 capacity Khalifa International Stadium — the home of Qatar’s national team — will now host those matches.
"The priority is to ensure an enjoyable experience for all fans so it was decided to open the (Education City) stadium at a later date," FIFA said in a statement.
