FIFA poised to seal Qatar Airways deal

FIFA could seal a major partnership deal with Qatar Airways within weeks, a source said on Friday, the same day football's corruption-tainted world body announced a $369 million loss.

"We hope to confirm it in the next few months, perhaps before the congress in Bahrain (May 10-11)," the source close to FIFA said in Zurich.

The contract between FIFA and Qatar Airways was negotiated and concluded in the era of disgraced former FIFA president Sepp Blatter after the 2022 World Cup was awarded to Qatar, said a source.
