|Qatar 2022 World Cup stadiums Progress : All you need to know by Kenyans247(m): Sat Sep 2019 01:07pm|
A look at the progress of the tournament venues as Qatar prepares to host Middle East’s first football World Cup.
Months after the completion of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, all eyes are on Qatar as it prepares to host football’s mega event in 2022.
The tiny Gulf nation will be the first from the Arab world to host the World Cup, breaking with tradition with a winter kick-off as it looks to avoid the scorching summer heat.
FIFA President Gianni Infantino hailed Qatar’s progress on infrastructure during a visit to its capital, Doha, on Tuesday, after inspecting the eight stadiums and several training sites that will be used for the month-long tournament.
“You can see the progress which is being made here four years before kick-off,” Infantino said after a tour of the Al Wakrah stadium, a 40,000 capacity venue that will host matches up to the quarter-finals stage.
“The Russian World Cup was the best ever, and the World Cup in 2022 has to be even better,” he said.
“I think this World Cup is extremely important, not only for Qatar but for the whole region – a region that has a passion for football and is investing a lot in the game.”
