Just did a bit of research.... Here are the population figures I found:

Al Wakra: 31,000 (2004 census)
Al Khoor: 31,500 (2008)
Al Shamal: 4,915 (2004 census) LOL
Dukhan: 7,000





What about other cities which will host matches? You need more than 6 cities to host a World Cup.

Qatar Population 1,700,000, population by 2022 would be 3-3.5 million the stadiums announced are only the small ones, the main one is 80,000 with other stadiums that are going to be announced.

In regards to the population I think it better to ask what will the population be of citizens/residents that could reasonably afford a ticket to one of the games. I don't think the many of the 100k's of maids or construction workers who make 1,000-3,000 dollars per year are likely to save up to go to a game.

are you talking about the puplation and how many people or fans from the country will go to the match? or the people/fans who will come and saport their teams from abroad?

if there will be no fans comes from abroad to saport their teams we will attend and we will watch the match and we will full the stadiums i dont think there is a lot to do with puplation or small numbers of people

can you try to fine excuses which was approved by the FIFA?
I dont think they will submit Qatar bid any they unaware of the conditions and requirements, they will not loss all that money adverisment, design, employes and other things if they didnt ask and know what is the condition to host WC

Should have asked that question in the Qatar thread, why are you referring to the maids and construction workers ? do you really believe that they are the majority ? well unfortunately the are not, most expats are working in private sector jobs and earn very good salary's in some cases higher than Qatari's, but thats another story. listen, do you really think the world cup would be hosted in Qatar for profit ? maybe but only to a small extent, the truth however is that for most sport events, people are encouraged to come to the event for example Schools are given hundreds of tickets to send school students to "field trips" to the matches and sport events, on the other hand business and corporate companies are also offered a large amount of tickets, and the rest is sold..

The only population figures for Qatar I can find right now is 1,409,000. Why would the population more than double in only 12 years?

Doesn't matter anyway, Qatar won't be hosting in 2022.

http://www.qatar-tribune.com/data/20...ction=first1_2

Qatar's population is easily capable of doubling, its already happened and there are plenty of people who want to work in what is probably the country with the highest salaries in the Middle East. If there's any place that can achieve that target, it's Qatar.

Also, I wouldn't write off the bid so easily if I were you. Its being backed by a number of prominent figures in the football world, most importantly FIFA president Sepp Blatter.

Fans will most definitely not be a problem, people will come from all over the Arab world (and everywhere else) to watch the cup.

Dude if you believe anything that comes out of Sepp Blatters mouth you've got issues. He just pays lip service to whatever country he is in at the time. Besides, you have to win enough votes to host the WC, it's not just whatever the president says. I give Qatar a .01% chance of hosting either 2018 or 2022. Maybe a joint bid in the future with a neighbouring nation (UAE?) would be their best shot.

Should I have? Well you should have replied with a link to your reply and posted it in the Qatar thread then.

Do I think that construction workers or maids are the majority? No. However I am guessing they and other low paid migrant workers are a sizable minority which is rather important considering we are only starting from a number of 1 million or so to start with.

Wowy,
Ozzies giving Qatar a good fight in this thread.
Well, seems to be fight among equals.
Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Hobart(Suffcient Population - 219,000?), Darwin(Sufficient Population 120,000?) - 8. Which are the other 2 or 4 cities and do they have suffcient inhabiation or some Desert Towns in central and west Australia.

What about all those Stadia being built left as white elephants after the Event?
What about those proposed usage of Cricket Stadia for the Event?

Well, Lot of soul searching to be done by OZ before pointing to Qatar?

Lol comparing Qatar to Australia is like apples & oranges.

Just goes to show you know nothing about Australia. You have forgotten Newcastle (population approx 500k), Gold Coast (population approx 500k), Gosford (approx 300k). Townsville will also be in the bid (population approx 180k) but has a catchment area stretching to Cairns and south to Mackay.
