This is killing of football/soccer. Huge embarrassment for real football fans. All stadiums will be built in 10 miles circle. Eslewhere, thouse would be placed or in Saudi Arabia or in sea.

Embarrassing. And I am shocked that I wont see WC matches in USA. Really shocked.

Money.

And for Russia - normal. Huge soccer expanding nation, great league, better and better infrastructure. That's nice.

The Qatar decision makes me physically angry at the corruption and incompetence within FIFA. Only a organisation blinded by oil money could think that the world cup could be hosted well by a tiny country of less than 2m with one city and summer temperatures over 50c. The campaign for the reformation or replacement of FIFA starts here.
The Russians bid certainly had the merit to deserve hosting but the Qatar decision pretty much throws the credibility of the whole process down the toilet.

I'm actually glad in a way since this makes public what everyone always suspected was true in private.

Lets hope this is the straw that breaks the camels back. Enough is enough, FIFA must go.

i dont even bother to see this from the point of view of qatar (dictatorship, oil money, tons of money vasted)

but

FIFA has multi-billion dollar industries supporting the event and the whole sport

wouldnt Adidas etc. be happier with a 320 million market like USA hosting the event? think of the publicity soccer would have gotten in the USA


bunch of corrupt "sport diplomats" turn my stomach (like our head of state the c.sucker)

Geopolitics ruled the day in the end.

I predict that 2026 will go to an African country.

I think most of the people here don't want to watch football at 4 in the morning.
But we don't want to look football on TV. We like to see it in real, but with Russia and Qatar as hosts, we won’t see it live. Don’t think many Dutchies will be travelling to there!

Yeah, I suspect that there has been a stitch up between Russia and Qatar, with Bin Hamman delivering the asian votes to 2018 to whichever bid could get Qatar 2022. Collusion (and corruption) is the surely the only reason they could have chosen a host as terrible as Qatar.

The whole process has been a farce for months and the Qatar choice only confirms it.

No suprise that the two nations that won are leathered with Billionaires and lots of Brown Envelopes.

I'm excited for Russia, but the Qatar selection is puzzling to say the least.

As an American, I'm truly sad that the US didn't win. Only for the simple fact that if the US won in 2022, it would bring about a seachange in the way the US views soccer. When we hosted in 1994, soccer was still 'meh' to us. But now with MLS doing well plus the US team doing as well as it did during this past World Cup, the soccer interest here has been at it's highest levels EVER. And it was my hope to see the WC in the US in 2022.

And as far as the heat: I lived in Tucson, Arizona for these past 2 years. It's on average 109 degrees in the day, 95 degrees at night. The heat truly messes with your mind. There is no way people who are not used to such extreme heat, are going to walk around Qatar to each and every one of the stadiums. Which of course will not be used after the WC.
