Default Qatar wins the bid for the world cup in 2022??

I am shocked, they dont even have anything built yet. Wow, huge hit to the US.

Trillions of dollars and 12 years is plenty of time to build anything.

Living in Canada, I'm happy Qatar won over the US. Not because I have any disdain towards the US, but because I like seeing new things. I get to see football (American) in the stadiums south of the border all the time. While it would be cool to see soccer played in Cowboy's Stadium and the new Giants Stadium and such, I wanna see what Qatar does with a clean slate and a lot of money. Could see some interesting designs. The geography of the host makes it interesting as well.

I didnt expect them to win, but like dolphin, seeing something different is nice since that the US hosted one in 94.

The average high in August is about 110 there.
This is going to be an indoor World Cup?

Qatar will have to build every stadiums with roof, or maybe with cooling systems. How they got all the money, I don't know, but if they are in the game I'm pretty sure they can make it happen with 12 years in between.

Corruption?

Like others have stated, countries like Qatar and UAE(where dubai is), hire the best engineers and get things done QUICKLY.

I'm not even mad at this, I was upset when London got the 2012 Olympics though. No city should host those games that many times when whole continents haven't hosted one.

FIFA is a cesspool of corruption and cronyism, it's well-known. Russian oligarch monies and Qatari oil revenues = happy FIFA

Qatar shouldn't win it, thats COMPLETE BS! Host it in a country that actually cares about sports, Qatar doesn't even care about soccer FFS. There FIFA ranking, 113. There will be no interest for people to go there.

Instead Australia should of won the bid although the time difference could of been a major issue, but Qatar??? Really?

England should of gotten a world cup bid. The atmosphere would of been intense. Russia is a good vote but Qatar makes me mad..

The Middle East was going to get a WC eventually. Their number just finally came up.

1994-2022 is a 28 year difference. That's an entire generation.
