The research, commissioned by Qatar 2022,
Say no more

Quote:
• 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
Bullshit.54 of Qatars matches will be after midnight and mainly starting at 3am in 95% of Asias population.Must remember that Western Asia only accounts for 5,6% of Asias population
Quote:
• 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
Thats 350,000 for the whole of the Middle East per year.They'd get that just from population increase-hardly worth singing about
Quote:
• 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
Imagine how much more they'd be with an extra 3.6 billion watching in primetime
Quote:
• 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
Qatar still doesn't have a team in Womens rankings at all.That makes them below the bottom team which is 169th-even lower than the mens at 113th
Qatars population-1.6 million.3.2% of 1.6 million equals 51,200.This figure is 787% higher that the total amount of Qatari registered players
Quote:
• If the region reaches penetration levels similar to more mature markets, 140 million additional football players across all levels could occur
Crap.140 million was the total number of players for the whole globe 7 years ago.
Quote:
• 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
Bulldust.50%.It would be lucky to be .5%

Quote:
• 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.
Think just how much better it would be if you broadcast to all the big Asian markets in primetime instead of treating them like lepers with 3am starts

Qatar's World Cup bid under microscope

Blistering summer temperatures that can soar to above 50 degrees Celsius may in the end be what prevents Qatar from winning the right to host the 2022 World Cup.

In its technical reports published earlier this month, FIFA said that despite proposals for cooling the stadiums and training grounds, Qatar's bid could pose a health risk because of the midsummer heat.

"The fact that the competition is planned in June/July, the two hottest months of the year in this region, has to be considered as a potential health risk for players, officials, the FIFA family and spectators, and requires precautions to be taken," the report said.

FIFA has praised Qatar's green credentials and "novel approach," but said holding the World Cup in such a small country could also pose a problem, especially as 10 of the 12 stadiums are located within a 25 to 30-kilometre radius.

If it wins FIFA's approval, Qatar would become the smallest host nation to stage the finals since Uruguay hosted the first World Cup in 1930.

Doubts remain over whether Qatar - a tiny country still in the process of being built - can handle an influx of some 400,000 fans, many on a tight budget.

The country, which currently has about 50,000 hotel rooms, would need 60,000 to meet FIFA requirements. Bid leaders have promised 95,000 rooms would be available by 2022.

Still, doubts remain.

"It's a massive leap of faith for FIFA to believe that in 12 years they will have the facilities built to the point where the punters are going to have a wonderful time in 50-degree heat," said one resident of Doha employed in the sports industry.

The bid's organisers have co-opted a number of high-profile soccer personalities to endorse their campaign, including France great Zinedine Zidane, former Dutch international Ronald de Boer and Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola.

Though the Gulf Arab state is eager to display a liberal and welcoming image to inspectors and media, its $4-billion bid for the tournament has been dismissed by many as unrealistic given its conservative social mores and lack of soccer culture.

The sale of alcohol, and possibly rowdy behaviour of World Cup fans from around the world, present significant challenges in an Islamic country where public drunkenness is prohibited.

For the world's largest exporter of liquefied natural gas, money is no object. The country's economy, forecast to grow by 15.5 percent this year, is expected to soar a staggering 21 percent in 2011, allowing Qatar to pour as much cash as necessary into preparations for 2022.

Because its under the name QATAR not DOHA, and FIFA didnt say anywhere its not allowed, they just said it might pose some logistical challenges. NOTHING OTHER THAN THAT !

BESIDES, FIFA believes Qatar has 7 cities, 4 being part of "Doha Conurbation" with 4 stadiums being in Al-Rayyan and only 3 in Doha.

Qatar's bid is a sham, 80% of your population are expats, these people don't give a toss about your country because they aren't even citizens, they're classed as 2nd rate human beings in Qatar. You aren't even allowed to go shopping if you are from various backgrounds. The rest, i.e. the citizens clearly don't give a toss about football either because your stands are always embarrassingly empty. Most football games have 5 people attending, some just the coaching staff and players. Your national team is a disgrace, more than half filled with people who have no association with your country who were bought to swap nationalities when Qatar is one of the hardest countries in the world to get citizenship in, then when they fail, it gets revoked and they get sent back home. Even with all these bought players from other nations and stealing of youth players from other nations, Qatar couldn't even qualify for a world cup ever.

You bid is based on unproven technologies and stadiums which only exist on graphic design videos and images. The plan to base the whole world cup in such a small area would cause security headaches for even the best militaries on the planet and the logistical concerns in dealing with all those fans are extreme to say the least. Also there are other factors, Qatar's ratio of males to females is 4 to 1, which gets further skewed during June/July as these are the hottest months of the year in Qatar and even Qataris try and escape during the time. Infact it is all Qataris trying to escape because your expats are forced to continue working. If the husbands don't have holidays then the wives and kids try and escape thus blowing the male to female ratio up to 6 to or even 7 to 1. Even then people get arrested all the time for public making out and alcohol laws are a major issue as well, the fans don't have tourist attractions either to visit, so what are they meant to do exactly? Sunbake? It's all well and good Qatar to have this outlandish bid on paper and graphic design videos, then bribe everyone and anyone that you can and buy ambassadors whom your nation has no connection with because you have no one that matters in football or otherwise but when it comes to the final crunch everyone sees your bid is complete mickey mouse.

That's why the FIFA technical report gave you a high risk rating, infact I think they were being kind. It's the worst bid of all time from any bidding nation. If any fifa executive votes for Qatar other than MBH, they will be investigated for decades until people find out the exact amount, they will not have a minute of privacy without having to worry about their "payments". You think that's worth it? I don't think so. Qatar's bid is going down and going down in a big way, I support a middle east world cup but Qatar is 1000% the wrong country to host it. It should be the nation that Bin Hammam didn't even vote for in the 2010 host race, Egypt that hosts the first Arab world cup. Egypt has everything that Qatar doesn't. They have a fantastic football team (with their own people), passionate football crowds, fantastic tourist venues and more. Egypt deserves to host a world cup, Qatar does not. Go Egypt 2026 but Qatar's bid as the FIFA technical report deemed = total FAIL.
