Arup are one of the key companies involved in cooling Qatar’s stadiums for the 2022 World Cup.

Amazingly, one of their directors at a recent trade fair suggested that Qatar was considering splitting football matches into three 30 minute halves, to protect the players from the severe heat of a Qatari summer. Such a plan would be wholly sacrilegious, I’m sure I needn’t point out.

Such claims have been rubbished by the Qatari organizers. I dare not think what’s happening to that director, right now. Whoops doesn’t quite cover it.
