Better stadiums than the US? I think not.

USA's stadiums are like fake tits. They are big but fake for football. They don't have football culture and feels more like american football.

Qatar is beautiful natural tits.

They're fake for football, but Qatar's stadiums will be taken apart and sent out to make stadiums elsewhere and those are real football stadiums with a football culture? If you want to make the fake for football argument, it needs to be in comparison to England or Spain/Portugal, etc. Comparing it to Qatar's stadiums doesn't make much sense.

What makes them so fake, though? When you look at the likely US venues, what makes them fake? Outstanding sightlines, proximity to the pitch? Is that not real football? Do we need to put a few tracks around the stadium to make them real football stadiums?

Only one of Qatar's stadiums will be taken apart, the Doha Port Stadium.

Any Stadium that is not purposely built for football is fake. People will walk past all the American stadiums and say it's home is for American football.

Most modern stadiums are built to accommodate several different things now. Soccer City just held rugby. Cape Town Stadium has no plans for soccer matches now. Stade de France is home to the French rugby team and how about the dozens and dozens of stadiums with a track around the field? Are those purposely built for football?

Interesting that Doha's single city World Cup bid stadiums have a total capacity of 605,260
This is more than triple the amount of Qatari nationals according to the United Nations

It all looks wonderful in a model or on paper but its totally unsustainable and absolutely a figment of their imagination like everything else in that bid at this point.

If only they had another 8-9 major cities and the weather wasn't 53 degrees in the shade

It is, Qatar is one of the hardest countries to gain citizenship in. Pretty much you have to know a sheik or a member of the royal family to become a citizen. Qatar recogns they have 1.6 mill people but less than a quarter of this number are actual citizens. The rest of the people just work there. It doesn't make a difference if you are a promising african footballer though, you'll get citizenship straight away In the past wc qualification campaign more than half of qatar's squad was purchased in this way. They failed again as always however. You can checkout the facebook group dedicated to this http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=10411522604 Anyway it's fair to say Qatar's world cup bid is in tatters. Like I have said, it never should have started to begin with, basically none of these stadiums on bs graphic designed videos and images exist. Qatar has no use for them now, or in the future. It really was a joke. Anyway at least they got some advertising for Qatar out of it I guess. World Cups cannot be bought. Let the real contenders step up to the plate.

Umm Slal 15km from centre of Doha, 2 venues
----------------------------------------------
= 10 venues in Doha Metro

Qatar is only 11,437 sq km !! where do you guys really expect us to build stadiums ? in the middle of the Sea ? or the middle of the Desert ? Just to please you folks ? obviously the stadiums would be located near urban areas with "a" population. Take not Umm Slal has a mega-project that is projected to have 200,000 in population (project pop. only!)

BTW these are according to Municipalities in Qatar.


1-Doha
5-Wakrah
6-Rayyan
9-Umm Slal
4-Khor
8-Shamal

There has been people complaining about 3 stadiums in Moscow, when Podolsk stadium located 45 km away of Spartak stadium (56 km by road) on another side of Moscow urban area. This is like another country for some bids. A lot of British stadiums are about same distance as well.

Besides, The Qatar 2022 bid did mention that the number of rooms by 2022 would be almost the same as South Africa 2010, and this bid will have all 12 Stadiums connected by a nation-wide metro.

As of right now Qatar only has a training bra and a dream of womanhood.
