The Premier League will have something to say about that. December 23rd is a Friday and would also likely rule out Christmas EPL fixtures. November 18th to December 18th makes most sense to me.
Don’t see these supposed logistical difficulties with holding a World Cup in Winter. Finish the previous season by early May and start the major European leagues again in mid-July, breaking at the end of October, starting up again by December 26th. Champions League final would be pushed back to the last week in June or the first week in July.
