European football federations have agreed it would be "impossible" to stage the 2022 World Cup in Qatar in summer as planned and a task force will be set up to find an alternative.
FIFA is expected to agree in principle to the switch at its next executive committee meeting in October.
FIFA vice-president Jim Boyce, after the meeting of 54 UEFA associations, said:
Obviously there are certain reservations regarding the World Cup in Qatar but everyone agrees that it would be impossible to play in the severe heat of Qatar in the summer.
It is very important that we get this right.
