Is hosting the WC the only way Qatar can actually get in?

Hi all, I am new to this thread.

I think Qatar is a good country and I love the middle east, but I am worried for the world cup if it is held in only Qatar. My country held the world cup 4 years ago, and while everything looked to go smoothly on the surface, it was a lot of hard work and a lot of preparation. It especially relied on the hard work of the individual hosting cities. Each one of them was stretched to the max making sure they could handle the incoming visitors and make the tournament go smoothly. I just can't see how one city could physically handle the world cup. Ok, I know that many of the stadiums are technically in a different designated city, but they will share accommodation, transport, food, water, police, and security facilities, just to name a few. The pressure on all of these things will be immense. Germany was able to work because the pressure was spread across many different cities.

As I said, Qatar is a good place, but I think if they want to hold a world cup, they should put forward a joint bid with countries like Bahrain, UAE, Oman or kuwait. That way the hosting pressure can be spread around.

Was interesting to hear the NeBe suggesting Egypt would/could co-hosting a fantastic World Cup-I totally agree.So many co hosting arrangements would work,to allow smaller bids to comply and compete with the superpowers of football

I have decided to drop my Cape Town 2026 WC bid for Johannesburg which has most of the venues in place. These venues are actually real and aren't renders.

The area circled in red is the reclaimed land for Doha's new airport.... The total area of Qatar has significantly increased with this.

About the legacy, you will have not stadia of 45,000 but many stadia with 25,000 seats, so not too big.
How about some foreign aid Qatar. In the case of Qatar, spending on the WC is wasteful. The market capitalisation isn't big enough to make it worth while.

I was talking to someone the other day who said that the amount of money Qatar will spend on the proposed world cup was enough money to achieve the UN Millenium Development goals. And that includes things like the eradication of world hunger and universal education. I don't know if it is true or not, but they are spending a hell of a lot

Every chance they will form the basis for a massive National Park

You know, one spark could lead to a fire, cut in this match it lead to a total hell ! sure its nothing compared to other countries problems, seems that even tiny Qatar has small hooliganism issues that is a "small" concern.

This was Al-Rayyan vs Al-Gharrafa match played at Al-Gharrafa Stadium.

Bad attendance huh ? i see "enough" people to say its good attendance.

This video taken from a television show on Al-Kass Tv where they ask spectators about their views, comments etc. lots of action .

Guy 2: Wait isn't that our brother number 312?
Guy 1: Oh yeah, what a shit I've always hated him ever since he bullied brother number 12 345!
Guy 2: Haha, how about we make fun of how father bought us platinum plated Bentleys and he only got a gold plated PORSCHE! LOL, we are so funny.
Guy 1: Yeah, did I tell you tonight is the night sister 1211 and I produce our first baby?
