hehe, no way in 2028, Qatar has just planned to spend 100 billion dollar more in the whole country. 100 + 130 + 230 billion dollars. So maybe more than ready for 2016.

the roof really isn't really that weak, atleast it held out the rain when it was in the opening ceremony.

Bloody brilliant looking stadium, but only 11,000 capacity?

I would have thought somewhere around 20,000 would have been better. Would the AFC allow it to host 2011 Asian Cup games if it can only hold 11,000 especially since they have said, after the low crowds at most games in the 2007 Asian Cup, that they will be pushing hard to get good crowds at the 2011 Asian Cup in Qatar.

My friend Dasher39 the 2007 asian cup was another case when 4 countries co-hosted it and caused lots of problems while in the 2011 AFC asian cup it will be focused in a small country meaning not to much travel and this stadium wont host major matches due to its small size it will most probably host normal matches, i know i also hoped it was more, yes the AFC allowed it already btw between you and me the president of the AFC is a Qatari what do you expect lol.

@Qatar son, I want to correct you. Qatar has already said that it will NOT prevent Israel from coming to the Olympics.

On a side note, there are many clubs in Qatar, but they're usually part of hotel organizations.

You can find more videos on Qatar at www.iloveqatar.net (which is incomplete)

On a side note, Qatar has a VERY strong chance.
The USA has hosted it three times, Asia hosts it next year (and the Olympics has NEVER been handed over to the same continent in a close time span). However the highest chance IMO could go to a South American country because that continent has never hosted it either.

All I know is, if Qatar gets it, it'll be great. More development, more competition, more fun, and hopefully a better future.

I'll do my best to be a hospitable Qatari ^_^

I may need a list of all the venues under construction in Madrid because it looks like the venues from Madrid's failed bid for the 2012 Olympics are being built regardless of the outcome.

Chicago is the best by now. Everything else looks quite boring, and not very innovative.

Just look at the Doha Masterplan which means new things = hundreds more hotels, excellent infrastructure, more accommodation, more attractions, more transportation etc. Qatar can reclaim more land if needed.

You can add the America's Cup Port in Valencia, which will be the sailing venue if Madrid wins
