The Qatar result proves that FIFA is corrupt to its core. I'm all for new hosts instead of the same old boring places but this has gone too far. It doesn't make sense. A new low for the utter shambles that is FIFA.

How can Doha host it when only 2 stadiums are aloud for 1 city. So that how many cities has Qatar got? Football has become a joke, i will not be watching 2022 WC because it displays what's wrong with this world.

bunch of corrupt "sport diplomats" turn my stomach (like our head of state the c.sucker)
USA is already a developed market. You will hardly make anyhow more from what you have right now there. And it's easier for a foreign visitor to visit Qatar than USA with complicated visa requirements. From investor's point of view Russia and China are best options of course. Because that means expanding potential markets.

The only comforting thing from my perspective thing is that when an obscure middle eastern country of under 1 million people whose technical report lamented and highlighted the ridiculous barren inadequacies of its bid wins the world cup you know what a crock of corrupt slimeballs FIFA are
It will be brilliant having 12 grounds in one city and playing in 44 degree heat in a mono cultural country with no football interest or heritage..Brilliant work FIFA you *****.
You could not have put it better - sums up the views of millions..

I wonder what would've happened if all bids were for both 2018 and 2022 until the end.

That's an insult to Fifa's integrity as much as much as anything, really can't fault Englands bid team here, they did all they could but Fifa simply weren't interested from the start. It's disgraceful how a nation who has done so much for this sport can be snubbed by the clowns at Fifa.

Average high in Qatar in July: 46°C. This will be the crappiest WC ever.

Congratulations Russia and Qatar!

Russia was a good bid, the country has a good football tradition and its good that eastern Europe will host the tournament for the first time. Obviously I hoped that England would win and I thought that our bid was also good but I'm not distraught, Russia 2018 will be a good tournament I'm sure.

As for Qatar, hmmm, holding the WC in a tiny nation with one city and no football tradition is a bizarre choice imo. If FIFA wanted a tournament in MENA region then Iran, Morocco, Egypt, even Saudi Arabia have much stronger football traditions and multiple cities though there would clearly be financial or 'other' issues with those countries.

I could even understand a joint gulf bid with UAE, Bahrain and Kuwait but to give the WC to Qatar alone seems odd to me.

Looking at Google maps the non-Doha stadium locations seem to be in the middle of barren desert with no town or city in sight! I'm sure they will build the stadiums and infrastructures well, they have plenty of money after all but it will be a strange tournament.
