FIFA sets Russia World Cup dates from June 14-July 15, 2018

FIFA president Sepp Blatter released a statement saying that FIFA will release Michael Garcia's report but that the bid process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups will not be revisited.

MARRAKECH, Morocco -- FIFA says the 2018 World Cup final will be played on Sunday, July 15.

Confirming the tournament dates on Friday, the FIFA executive committee agreed that the opening match will be played on a Thursday, June 14.

Meanwhile, FIFA also agreed on Friday that a final decision on the timing of the 2022 World Cup will be taken in March of next year. The November-December 2022 time-frame remains the most likely time in order to avoid the extreme heat of the summer.

Sepp Blatter rules out FIFA revisiting vote for 2018, 2022 World Cups

Michael Garcia has resigned from the FIFA ethics committee that investigated the bid process to the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

FIFA will not reopen the vote for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, and will publish at least some of the confidential report into the bidding process, president Sepp Blatter said on Friday.

The 78-year-old Blatter, who is seeking a fifth term as president, said the decisions by the FIFA executive committee on Friday will allow the governing body to move on from four years of controversy.

"We have been in a crisis,'' Blatter said. "The crisis has stopped because we again have the unity in our government.''

FIFA agrees to publish Michael Garcia report on 2018, 2022 World Cup bids

FIFA president Sepp Blatter released a statement saying that FIFA will release Michael Garcia's report but that the bid process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups will not be revisited.

FIFA's executive committee has agreed unanimously to publish Michael Garcia's report into World Cup bidding, where legally possible.

Officials at a meeting in Morocco agreed to the proposal without a vote being taken -- but nothing will be published until the ethics committee charges against three FIFA ExCo members have been dealt with.

At that same meeting, FIFA president Sepp Blatter also confirmed that FIFA will not reopen the vote for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
