Qatar will be cleared of corruption during the 2022 World Cup bidding process when a Fifa report is published on Thursday, BBC Sport has learned.
It was alleged that Qatar won the staging rights after Fifa officials were paid £3m to support its bid.
However, Fifa's independent ethics adjudicator, Hans Joachim Eckert, is not expected to recommend a revote.
Qatar was awarded the 2022 World Cup in 2010, beating bids from Australia, the United States, South Korea and Japan.
The decision was a surprise and eventually led to a number of corruption allegations.
