Last year when the England-Brazil friendly was held in Doha, tickets were only released in Qatar malls first, then online. If tickets had been online right away, you can bet the demand coming from Saudi & UAE would have been huge compared the stadium capacity of 70,000. Good to see that Qatar residents were taken into consideration and were given a favour

For this reason I don't believe one second stadiums would be empty during the WC, Qatar has to be considered as part of a region of 40 million inhabitants, not as a country of 1.6 million with closed borders.
I agree with you.

The key words there are citizens, you only have 300k of those not 1.6 million. The rest of the people require Exit Passes to even cross anywhere, free movement Secondly it's a world cup, not the Qatar cup, no matter how many people you pay off or how many people you buy who have no relation to Qatar at all such as half your team and your ambassadors (because guess what? Qatar has never produced even a half decent footballer for the world game), Qatar has failed in football development, Qatar has failed in the technical requirements for a world cup, Qatar has no tourist destinations for people to go to, the bid is based on stadiums which don't exist but in "land of the fairies" graphic designed pictures and videos backed up by unproven scientific technologies. The bid is rubbish, in every department and I haven't even covered half of it, FIFA should withdraw this bid ASAP, it's a joke it's even gotten this far.

Al-Shamal Stadium, Al-Shamal city
Al-Khor Stadium, Al-Khor city
Agreed these two are separate cities - but population would barely fill stadium. Almost all fans would be travelling up from Doha.

Al-Wakrah Stadium, Al-Wakrah city
This is a separate city - just. It is about 10km to the south of Doha, and has virtually no facilities/hotels etc. Almost all fans would travel from Doha.

Qatar University Stadium, Lusail city
Lusail National Stadium, Lusail city
This is a brand-new district - barely built - and again only about 10km from Doha. Again, most fans would travel from Doha.

Al-Rayyan Stadium, Al-Rayyan city
Education City Stadium, Al-Rayyan city
This is not a separate city - it is one of the municipalities that make up Doha

Khalifa International Stadium, Al-Waab city
Al-Gharrafa Stadium, Al-Gharrafa city
Umm Slal Stadium, Umm Slal city
Again, these are not cities - they are districts of Doha

Sports City Stadium, Doha city
Doha Port Stadium, Doha city
Agreed - Doha is a city.

So to summarise - 7 stadiums in Doha - 3 stadiums in very close proximity - and only 2 in separate cities.

For all of his faults, Sepp Blatter is not an idiot. It will take more than a few Gold Falcon gifts to win the World Cup.

To make it clearer Al-Wakrah and Lusail City are 14km from the Centre of Doha not the metro fringe. So really it is 10 Stadiums in Doha metro / sphere and 2 Stadiums in towns of 20 / 30 000 around 80km from Doha.

I think we've more than truely proven why Qatar, should not get the world cup.

So, I ask everyone to leave this thread alone and let them post things that are relevant. We've heard enough about why they shouldn't have it.

Interesting how stereotypes + exaggeration, are shaping up peoples views around the world. I think this is what some people around this thread are being fed.

If 14 km is a totally different city from the centre of Doha then Doha must be a very small place.

Qataris are Literally Retarded: Almost Half (43.8%) Marry Their Close Relatives!
Thu, 09/03/2009 - 2:21pm — admin2
“Marriages between close relatives is increasing. While the number accounted for 11.7% of marriages in 1996, it reached 40% and 43.8% in 2000 and 2007 respectively.”

Earlier, a study, conducted by the Supreme Council for Family Affairs (SCFA), had said that some 60% of those with disabilities were found to be born to “closely-related parents” in Qatar.

It urged for the enforcement of the pre-marital medical test law, saying that 34.5% of disabled people were born to parents of first-degree relatives, while 25.2% were to parents of second-degree relatives.

The study also noted that number of nuclear families in Qatar has significantly increased at the expense of the extended ones.

“While the number nuclear families increased from 74% in 1976 to 82% in 2004, that of the extended families declined to 18% in 2007,” the study said.

I lived in Qatar for years - not all of the stereotypes are true, but>>>

1) It does have more money than sense
2) As Lonely Planet said a few years ago, Doha is possibly the most boring city in the world.
3) Qatar has virtually no tourists other than Saudis escaping the delights of their own country. Plenty of people enter on toursit visas, but that is because business visas are more difficult to obtain.

Sad but true.

All i can see is rubbish bag on the ground.

MR Walbanger is pointing to life of poverty and low salaries for foreigners workers in Qatar and forget that there are millions of citizens in their countries living without housing, without work or health care or even education.

Now Qataris are Outraged about Poor Treatment of Maids But for all the WRONG REASONS!
Fri, 08/21/2009 - 5:54am — admin2
Residents of Qatar are outraged over media reports that 30 Saudi women have had to work in the same “humiliating” conditions that were formerly deemed acceptable only for foreign migrant workers.

The women, ages 20 to 45, arrived in Qatar to be placed with families as maids, earning about $400 per month, slightly more than their mostly Asian and African counterparts.

One maids agency told newspapers that the demand for Saudi women had gone up sharply due to widespread fears that foreign maids practiced magic.

nobody can work in Gulf countries in Tourist Visa and if he did ?? this consider as crime and he must came from a country without rule or laws

there millions come to Qatar , Dubai , Bahrain or other GCC countries for tourist and sport events , Exhibitions , Shopping and even study in Qatar international univesities.

sport events


Exchange of cultures



tourists in popular Qatari markets


Tourism activities


Tourists love to smoking Qatari hubbly pupply
