IOC President Thomas Bach says he has been assured by Fifa counterpart Sepp Blatter that the 2022 World Cup in Qatar will not clash with the Winter Olympics.
With temperatures in Qatar in July too high to play football Fifa has looked at moving its showpiece tournament to a different time of year.
But Bach says the World Cup will not be staged in February 2022 when the Winter Olympics will be taking place.
