Qatar to host the FIFA World Cup in 2022
It was announced on December 2nd of 2010 that Qatar will be hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2022. FIFA President Sepp Blatter confirmed the news in Zurich after a meeting of the organization’s executive committee. Qatar beat out bids from Japan, South Korea, United States and Australia to host this major international sporting event.
Although it is exciting news for soccer fans around the world that Qatar will be hosting the event four years from now, there are many concerns about how this will impact Qatar’s infrastructure. The country has not yet built any stadiums or developed an adequate public transportation system, so there is much work to be done before 2022. However, Qatar still looks forward to welcoming millions of visitors and spectators when they do hold the FIFA World Cup in 2022.
FIFA World Cup to be held in November and December
The FIFA World Cup 2022 will take place in Qatar. The event will be held from November 21, 2022 to December 18, 2022. It is the first time the FIFA World Cup will be held in Qatar and the first time it is being held during winter months.
The tournament will include 32 teams with 8 groups of 4. The top two teams from each group will advance to a round of 16 knockout stage game where they’ll play to earn spots in the quarterfinals, semifinals and finals.
Tickets for this event are not yet on sale but are expected to go on sale in 2019 or 2020. When tickets become available you can expect prices to range from $200 USD to $1,500 USD for the final game depending on seat location.
FIFA World Cup to have 48 teams
The FIFA Council approved a proposal to increase the number of teams at the FIFA World Cup from 32 to 48. The format will be decided by 2026 but is likely to be a round-robin style with three groups of 16 teams. There will also be 16 groups of three in the first round. For example, Group 1 would consist of A1, B1, C1; Group 2 would consist of A2, B2, C2; Group 3 would consist of A3, B3, C3. The top two teams in each group will advance to the Round of 16 knockout stage. Teams will play one game against every other team in their group, for a total of three games per team. They are then ranked based on points (three for a win, one for a tie).
The same 16 teams from the first round then compete against each other in another set of 16 matches (another knockout phase). After that second round, only eight teams remain. Those eight move on to the quarterfinals and semifinals before meeting for the final match – all on neutral ground (no home advantage).
Qatar to build 8 new stadiums
Qatar has announced that it will build eight new stadiums for the FIFA world cup. qatar will spend $200 billion on their preparations for the world cup which is three times more than any previous host. The stadium capacity will range from 45 thousand to 80 thousand people with seating for 60 thousand. One of these stadiums is slated to be 100% solar powered!
It’s estimated that the tournament will bring in 500 million spectators. This means that Qatar has a lot at stake with this event–they could recoup their investment by making sure everything goes well. They are taking many precautions to make sure this happens including appointing Doha as a car-free zone so there will be no congestion or air pollution. They have also promised that they won’t raise prices for food or drink during the games.
In order to help minimize traffic congestion and construction accidents, they’ve also increased security measures by building three hundred miles of expressways around the stadiums.
Qatar has also spent six years planning how workers will move around in order to reduce long distances between work sites. They want migrant workers coming into Qatar ahead of time (by 2020) so they can start training them before the opening ceremonies commence in 2022.
Qatar to spend $200 billion on infrastructure
Qatar will spend $200 billion on infrastructure in preparation for hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2022. qatar is set to host the first ever FIFA world cup in the Middle East. The country has plans to build nine new stadiums, six of which will be able to seat up to 45 thousand people. Those new stadiums will cost about $3 billion each. qatar is also planning on making huge investments in its public transportation system as well as upgrading over 100 existing hotels. They are also building a brand-new airport with an estimated cost of $35 billion that should hopefully be completed by 2020.
