Do you support hosting the entire WC in London a city significantly more capable of hosting the entire WC?

Of topic, I admit, but I don't think the olympics comes anywhere near matching the number of overseas visitors that the world cup does. You do not get countries taking 50,000 fans over to the olympics like you do for the world cup.

True, but its not like we are expecting many, and if so i guess they "should" get ready for them.

Last official estimate was that the bare minimum number of visitors would be 700,000.

I will rephrase

Do you support the concept of London hosting an entire WC as a concept, since it is significantly more capable and significantly more experienced and prepared than Doha.

You obviously support the 10 venues within one city concept, so do you support the same concept in larger more capable cities to?

Would you advise Australia and England to host all the matches in Sydney or London?

Hey, your treating this as if its a revolution or a new regime or something !

No I wouldnt want to see Sydney or London hosting them (due to the simple fact that both hosted the Summer Olympics)

HOWEVER, When it comes to Cairo or Dubai then sure But we know thats not going to happen since its going to be under the name EGYPT and UAE. Yes i do support it, but its not "likely" to happen.

So you support Cairo hosting the entire World Cup in its city, and for some reason its not "likely" in Cairo.

Egypt will be a fantastic world cup in 2026. They have everything that Qatar doesn't, a good football team for starters with their own people, fantastic tourist venues and football fans. It will be a fantastic first arab world cup and deservedly so unlike Qatar's bid which is the ultimate sham and the most disgraceful world cup bid of all time.

Come on, this is not an excuse !

Even the Martinique's league (French Caribbean; population of that tiny island: around 400K) and especially one of the best teams there: "Club Colonial de Fort-de-France", has much higher attendance figures than the Qatar's national team (not to mention the Q-League' teams)!

Why are some losers still hooked up on Qatar hosting a world cup and comparing it to London, Paris etc. Deal with it the draw is next week. Don't be hating when Blatter knocks on Qatar's door.

Why? Buddy Qatar in no way deserves to host the world cup that's why. Did you look at the technical report? It's the biggest failure of all time, the worst bid of all time out of all the possible world cup hosts ever. Qatar's bid is an utter sham and the QFA is a total and utter disgrace to international football.

GRANT THORNTON STUDY OUTLINES COMMERCIAL & FOOTBALL DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES FROM A FIFA WORLD CUP IN THE MIDDLE EAST

Doha, 24th November 2010: Research carried out by Grant Thornton, the respected global advisory services firm, has outlined the scale of potential commercial and football development opportunities to FIFA and the global football family if Qatar is awarded the right to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The research, commissioned by Qatar 2022, confirms that football is the number one sport in the Middle East ,that the region has massive untapped football development potential, and that Qatar will deliver a commercially successful FIFA World Cup and act as the catalyst to help drive the growth of football across the Middle East.

Key findings of the Grant Thornton report include:

The award of the FIFA World Cup to Qatar in 2010 would grow the value of football in the region by $14 billion by 2022 [52%] and by a further $10 billion [46%] by 2042
• Given the central location of Qatar, 82% of the world's time zones would receive Qatar 2022 games live in prime time, with a potential match day peak audience of 3.2 billion viewers; this has the potential to create an enhanced rights value for FIFA
• A FIFA World Cup in Qatar will help increase football match attendances across the region in 2022 by 13.4% - an additional 4.2 million spectators [this excludes World Cup attendance]
• Football pay TV broadcast rights in the region are expected to rise by 30% to $550 million by 2022 if the FIFA World Cup is held in the Middle East
• Female football participation in the Middle East has grown from less than 0.2% in 2000 to 3.3% in 2006 (FIFA Big Count), still short of the 10% level in mature football markets, indicating massive growth potential which the World Cup in the region could unlock
• If the region reaches penetration levels similar to more mature markets, 140 million additional football players across all levels could occur
• Half of all visitors to a FIFA World Cup in Qatar from the Middle East are expected to be women and 97% of them are expected to attend matches
• Middle East proximity to European and Asian markets is likely to enhance the commercial value of hospitality rights compared to South Africa 2010
• Given Qatar's proximity to India, a FIFA World Cup in Qatar would help drive interest in football across an Indian population of over 1.1 billion.


Hassan Al Thawadi, CEO of Qatar 2022 said: "Grant Thornton's report helps to quantify the significant commercial and football development opportunities for FIFA and football if the Middle East has the historic opportunity to host the FIFA World Cup in 2022. We can see many millions of new fans participating, watching and consuming football.

"We know the passion for football in the Middle East. The missing piece of the jigsaw is having the FIFA World Cup as the catalyst to unlock a whole new generation of fans and players. This report adds to our belief that a FIFA World Cup in the Middle East in 2022 would not only make history but also open up a significant and exciting new football frontier for FIFA and its partners."

Grant Salter, Director from Grant Thornton said: "The passion for football in the Middle East and the enthusiastic support for Qatar's Bid to host the FIFA World Cup in the region for the first time is evident wherever one travels in the Middle East. We are excited to be part of a process of what we hope will be part of football and Middle East history."

Potential $14 billion Growth in Middle East Football by 2022

DOHA, Qatar, Nov. 24 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Research carried out by Grant Thornton, the respected global advisory services firm, has outlined the scale of potential commercial and football development opportunities to FIFA and the global football family if Qatar is awarded the right to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Notes to Editors

The Grant Thornton study also highlight a number of indicators confirming that football is by far the number one sport in the Middle East. For example:

* Middle East TV audiences for the FIFA World Cup have grown almost 350% since 1986
* Football is the top team/competitive sport in terms of participation in the region with 9% playing either regularly or occasionally
* In the most active 15-24 age group, 48% play football regularly or occasionally
* More than 5 times more people paid to attend football matches in the region than any other sport
* The total number of football players in the region as per FIFA's Big Count 2006 was 37.1 million, compared to 7.3 million in 2000
* The number of youth players in the region grew by 16% from 2000 to 2006.
