Umm...I don't see what's so strange about promoting a bid at its own dedicated thread. Some people act like it's stunning that a supporter would tout support from a famous footballer. It's a common PR technique, not out of the ordinary.

Eight stadiums are to be needed by a single country for a FIFA World Cup. Qatar has only proposed five. Their permanent capacities are only 25,000. I have several doubts about a Qatari World Cup. All of those stadiums are gonna end up being white elephants after a Qatari World Cup. And where is the proposed final venue, an upgraded Khalifa Stadium or another white elephant stadium that is twice as large as the other planned white elephant stadiums?

Our Qatari friends say that the Islamic World is behind them.
Do you know if the sentiment is that strong?
There is a fair chance the likes of Indonesia and Malaysia would prefer Australia on the grounds of convenience as It's closer to get to and in the same Time zones.
Just a possibility.

I'm leaving this thread now, I can't make up my mind if it's off putting or funny.
The majority of us believe Qatar is simply too small and its an abuse of a nations wealth to put so much in to a one off event.
Obviously the Qataris disagree.
Minds have been made up that nothing is changing.

If you really don't like their bid, join a petition. I think there is one going around based on human rights failures.

Qatar, I say concentrate on the 2020 Olympics

in order to use your future stadiums maybe you should submit a bid for the IRB Rugby World Cup as well (whether you play rugby or not), since it's the last of the world's largest events you didn't try to host, just like the winter olympics !

In other news, now we have a new telecommunication operator, Virgin Mobile !! so thats Qtel, Vodafone and Virgin Mobile.
Heck, I think you're 5.

"Qatar best country in the world, we can host everything."

You have no ability to debate, no logic, and no idea of the FIFA requirements.

So yes, you are 5.

Anymore accusations of racism at other forumers and you'll be out of here.

"Quiet Approach to 2020 Olympics for Qatar"

Plans for a bid from Qatar for the 2020 Olympics are proceeding even though the primary goal for now is to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the secretary general of the Qatar Olympic Committee tells Around The Rings.

Sheikh Saoud Bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani confirmed that Doha will be in the race for 2020, it’s second try after failing to make the shortlist for 2016.

The sheikh says the strategy is to keep things quiet while the battle to host World Cups in 2018 and 2022 is underway. That decision by FIFA is set for December 2010.

Al-Thani says he takes comfort from the decision to award Brazil the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics.

“I think that when the IOC chose Rio it opened a new gate. The area that is still missing an Olympics is the Middle East. Hopefully we can change that in 2020, but first we must focus on 2022,” explained Al-Thani.

“2020 will be on our agenda. Rio has the World Cup (2014) and two years later will have the Olympics. Maybe we will do the same, but the other way round.”

Doha lost out for 2016 due large part to stage the Games in October, rather than the traditional July/August dates sought by the IOC.

Al-Thani revealed that this time Qatar will accept the northern hemisphere mid-summer timing, arguing that technology and the changing world climate will come to the rescue.

“Ten years from now the weather will be different – we are already seeing the change. We can play at night in climate controlled stadia. At a recent event in our stadium a temperature no higher than 28 degrees centigrade was recorded,” claimed Al-Thani.

Qatar has recently staged world-class events in tennis, table tennis, weight-lifting and football, and will showcase its national stadium to the world on Saturday when football giants England and Brazil battle in a World Cup prep match.

Al-Thani confirmed that part of his government’s strategy is to bring more and more of these global events Doha.

“To bring a big event to the Middle East is very important. Impossible does not exist in our dictionary. Any event that will help our strategy to bring a major event to our country we will bid for,” he said.

Doha is not the only Arab Gulf city looking at the 2020 Olympics. Dubai in the United Arab Emirates is looking at the bid as well.
