Organisers of the 2022 Qatar World Cup hit back at the Football Association's suggestion of moving the tournament to another country.
The FA says it will be too hot for players and fans if the tournament took place in Qatar during the summer.
Chairman of the FA, Greg Dyke, has said in an interview that air conditioning will not be enough. He is calling for FIFA to move the 2022 World Cup to a new location or to a different time of year.
The Qataris say they are ready to host whether it is summer or winter.
Richard Scudamore, the Chief Executive of Premier League has told the Daily Telegraph that Fifa's plans to move the World Cup in Qatar would cause chaos.
The tournament is meant to take place in June/July 2022 when the average temperature in the country is around 50 degrees or 122 fahrenheit.
The Premier League believes moving the tournament would "cause chaos" with the domestic features in 2021 and 2022.
It would also reduce the ability of the Premier League to negotiate rights access with major broadcasters which would ultimately reduce the amount of sponsorship money being sent to clubs.
The new Chairman of the Football Association Greg Dyke, has told ITV News that the World Cup in Qatar will have to move because the heat would not be suitable for football fans.
He said the atmosphere of the World Cup would be destroyed because fans without tickets would not be able to cope with the heat outside the stadiums.
Greg Dyke, the new chairman of the Football Association, has told Sky News that something needs to be done to change the World Cup in Qatar.
Football Association chairman Greg Dyke has said it will be "impossible" for football fans to attend the 2022 World Cup in Qatar because of the Arab State's summer heat.
The tournament is scheduled to take place in June 2022 where temperatures are normally as high 50C in the northern hemisphere.
The Football Association believes it is impossible to play the 2022 World Cup in Qatar during the summer, the governing body's new chairman Greg Dyke has stated.
Dyke says FIFA has two choices - to move the World Cup to a cooler part of the year or give the tournament to another country - but believes a winter World Cup is more likely.
It is the first time the FA has taken a formal position on the controversial issue, although Dyke's predecessor David Bernstein said in June that any plans to move the World Cup to the winter were "fundamentally flawed".
The latest statement could lead to some differences with the Premier League, whose chief executive Richard Scudamore strongly opposes any move to change the World Cup to the winter due to the disruption it will cause to domestic club competitions over three years.
Dyke said: "I don't know how many people have been to Qatar in June. I have. The one thing I can tell you is you can't play a football tournament in Qatar in June."
