hahahah this only what Mo Rush think becouse he dont know what the difference between WorldCup and UEFA Championship
he is the blind not the Qataris or FIFA lol
yes, because South Africa has not just hosted the WC, Cape Town was not just a host city, and I do not have copies of the 2010 host city contract, stadium use agreement etc.

I clearly don't know the difference. They very fact that you even consider 7 venues in a small city shows that you still do not grasp the concept of a World Cup. This is not the Olympic Games or the Asian Games or a tennis tournament

7 stadia in 1 city. Not going to happen. As I've said before, blind nationalism is clearly apaprent here.

See Rio, see Johannesburg, see Paris, see Cape Town.

Google Earth says 9.8km from Doha.

I drive 12km to get to work or 10km to get Cape Town's CBD.

This means Cape Town could build stadia in Bellville, the CBD, Century City, Newlands, Khayelitsha, and many other areas and host the entire WC!

I'm so excited.

4 stadiums WILL be built.

Including Education City , Alkhor, Alwakrah & Sport city.

That + 3 existing (Al-Gharrafa, Al-Rayyan & Khalifa Stadium)

that means we will have 7 stadiums that were part of the World Cup plan existing but without a FIFA WC, the other 5 would have been built only if the FIFA WC comes to Qatar.
Are they going to be built the same size or are they going to be reduced like the plans after the World Cup?

Sport city stadium will stay full capacity (47K), the rest however will be ~25K. So the modular elements that would have been added to the rest of the stadiums would have been 170K in total capacity of modular elements. Post world cup, they would have been shipped of to 22 poor developing countries to be reassembled there.

these are the models for the modular parts.

There's not even any use in discussing a useless bid which has failed the technical and football requirements for a world cup in such pathetic fashion. Pack it up and withdraw Qatar's bid ASAP. It's a farce, a disgrace and an utter embarrassment to everyone concerned.

Enough.

We get the idea that you don't like this bid. I too doubt the validity of Qatar hosting the World Cup on their own. I think they could have a much more realistic chance if they presented a joint bid with UAE, for instance.

But let's not bang on about it ad nauseam, eh? And while we're at it, a modicum of respect shown towards the Qataris on this board might not be out of order.

Here's my respect. http://qatarsucks.com/

I grew up in Qatar buddy (if you didn't know), so I don't think attacking a garbage bid with these king's ass kissing qatari's on this board who were bought like zidane, roger miller, more than half their football squad and turned the world cup bidding process into an utter farce is out of line.

Hmm, so you found yourself a website full of close minded, racist bigots like yourself?

You expect us to take you seriously when you link to a website that claims that all Qataris are "unintelligent/ materialistic/ ignorant/ ugly bastards"? Thanks for confirming what I knew all along - you are a racist. You have linked to racist websites, generalized about Qataris in a racist manner, and have generally shown how much of an ignorant fool you really are. And yet, surprise surprise, the mods do nothing about it.

Instead of actually offering constructive criticism, which would be welcomed, you choose the path of racist, ignorant and bigoted dialogue. Yet you expect people to take your sorry ass seriously.

You are extremely out of line here. It is quite sad how obsessed you are with Qatar, and JimB is right - it is getting extremely tiring.

You have no right to judge individuals on this board. You don't know them from Adam. I don't know what nationality you are but I dare say that people / governments in your country have done bad things too. Should we all disrespect you on that basis? Should you disrespect me because of the people / governments of my country? Should everyone disrespect everyone on that basis? If that was our guiding principle, these boards would soon descend into an unmanageable mess of accusation and counter accusation and no one would ever get to discuss buildings which - in case you had forgotten - is what this website is all about.

So please........however legitimate your grievances against Qatar may be, don't bring your baggage with you on to these boards. Treat other posters with respect or, if you really are incapable of controlling your emotions, just stop posting.

Endlessly repeating a shopping list of pejorative adjectives that you believe to be appropriate to Qatar (or Qatar's bid for the World Cup) doesn't constitute debate. It isn't helpful. And it just takes the discussion off track - to everyone's detriment. So I politely and respectfully ask that you hold your tongue (however difficult it may be for you) and stay on topic. Thank you.

It's better when the stadiums are closer, so the tourist can visit more possible games. Look at USA 1994 going from L.A to Chicago, or Brazil 2014 going from Porto Alegre to Manaus. Look at the distance. Closer the better.

Vladimir Putin promises to show up in Zurich ahead of the FIFA vote on December 2

AFC chief visits Kazan
Kazan: AFC President Mohamed Bin Hammam visited the Republic of Tatarstan on Friday.

Tatarstan is bidding to become part of Russia’s potential host cities for the FIFA World Cup 2018 and 2022.

Tatarstan has been jockeying for Moscow's favours as President Rustam Minnikhanov has announced that his republic would apply to host international football matches as part of Russia's 2018 and 2022 World Cup bid. A FIFA delegation has inspected and visited the capital city of Tatarstan, Kazan, which hopes to be a host city.

Kazan is also the home of Russian powerhouse Rubin Kazan club.

Bin Hammam, accompanied by fellow FIFA Executive Committee member Hani Abourida, of Egypt, in his visit to Kazan on Friday, was very much impressed by the football tradition and infrastructure in the city.

He says that it is clear that the city of 1.2 million population would do a great job if given a chance.

“It is a great honour and pleasure to be received by the Republic of Tatarstan’s people in Kazan. I would like to thank President (Minnikhanov) for his fantastic hospitality."

Bin Hammam stated that AFC would “only” back Europe’s desire to host the 2018 version of the world football extravaganza.

“I want to assure Europe on behalf of AFC that we recognise and support their desire to host the 2018 edition,” he said.

“It will be an open bid and everybody is free to support anyone,” said Bin
Hammam. “But our support is for Europe when it comes to 2018."

However, Bin Hammam stressed that the AFC is not in a position to support one candidate as AFC itself has already four bidders.

“We have four countries that are very capable of hosting the World Cup. We will put our best foot forward in 2022. We are determined,” he said.

Seven countries are bidding for the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cup. They are Australia, Belgium & Netherlands, England, Russia, Spain & Portugal, and USA.

Three countries - Qatar, Japan and Korea Republic - are in the running for only the 2022 edition.

In his reply, Minnikhanov said football was Russia’s leading sport but the country had never hosted the FIFA World Cup.

“We will make it a spectacular competition and an unforgettable experience for all the participants and supporters. And we at Tartastan are also planning to build a brand new 45,000 seat stadium to fulfill the need of the world football bonanza. The new stadium can be potentially first be used and tested in the XXVII World Universiade in 2013.

"Our Primer Minister Vladimir Putin also promised to show up in Zurich ahead of the FIFA vote on December 2. He is 'Ready to Inspire' us. ”he said, referring to Russia's bid motto.
