It would have to be players that viewers want to watch and paying customers want to see, whose non-participation would be missed financially by the heavy investors.
And, they'd have to do it before tickets start getting sold. If they decide to boycott a month before, no financial hit.

So, Messi, Ronaldo, VVD, Kane, ...

And what would the solution be to fix it? "Real Sports" did a segment on this a few years ago (and we probably discussed it in this thread), and nothing changed.

I don't even mean as a way to get FIFA to right their wrongs. More of a thinking that in the off season leading up to the 2021-2022 season you'll probably have clubs discussing this with relevant players/agents as well as reviewing contracts and the such. I wonder how contractually feasible it is for many of the players to simply not be around for part of the season like that?

I think the club seasons will be interrupted, so no matches at that time. And this screws with all the Euro leagues (except some Scandanavian ones, and some with long holiday season breaks).
The solution will be to start club seasons a few weeks earlier (including Champions League), skip a Fall international break, end the season a few weeks later.

All because Qatar bought the World Cup from greedy people.

I haven't found anything concrete regarding the planning of the 22/23 season.

So, this year's Champions League qualifying starts with a preliminary round June 25/26 (Europa on June 27). So, that would get moved up a few weeks.

Agree that the big leagues will find a way to schedule around the WC.

Many open cup tourneys will also have to juggle schedules

Agreed. They might have to start earlier as well.
FA Cup Extra-Preliminary Round starts this year on Aug 10.
Second Round Proper is November 30.
Third Round Proper (EPL and League Championship join) is January 4.

EFL Cup starts in August.
Last year's Quarter-finals were in December, semi's in January.

Makes sense. What a mockery of the whole thing.

(CNN)Disgraced former UEFA President Michel Platini has been taken into custody as part of a corruption investigation over the awarding of the 2022 World Cup to Qatar, the French financial prosecutor's spokesperson told CNN on Tuesday.

The ex-boss of Europe's soccer governing body had been serving a four-year ban from the sport since 2015, over a $2 million payment he received from FIFA.

He has been brought in for questioning but has not been arrested or charged with a crime, the spokesperson said.

The former French soccer legend led UEFA from 2007 to 2015, and was the heir apparent to take over from FIFA head Sepp Blatter, until both men were swept out of the sport in the wake of the massive corruption scandal from which it is still reeling.

Platini's interrogation by investigators again raises questions over the controversial decision to host the upcoming World Cup in Qatar, a small but wealthy Middle Eastern nation which lacks the infrastructure or sporting tradition of previous host countries. Qatari organizers have repeatedly denied allegations of wrongdoing in the bidding process.
