How on Earth can building 10 40,000+ stadiums be justified in a country whose population is only c.840,000? What is the average attendance of Quatari domestic teams and do they need such large stadiums? I don't know but I suspect they do not.

The answer the Qataris in this thread will give you is that the top tiers will be donated to developing countries. But even then it's questionable how often this number of stadiums will be used given the fact that the league's average attendences are well below 8000.

Indeed, and what about their so called "carbon neutral" stadiums.. I mean, after the show, will they move these stadiums/stands/tiers by solar-powered supertankers/cargo containers, or by giant hot air balloons ??????

Carbon neutral COOLING TECHNOLOGIES, no body said anything other than that, so don't change around words, if you want a green bid go to the Belgium-Holland 2018 thread.

Robh, yes the upper tiers (19-21K) will be donated to developing countries (I think i read somewhere Lebanon, Syria, Nepal and Pakistan, but that could be something else as well), and btw, sports passion is increasing at a noticable rate, these days for simple sports like Tennis, Handball and Basketball there are amazing attendances compared to the years before.

We just held the IHF Global handball championship and now the FIBA Asia Basketball championship is going on. We have sports all year long.

Jandeczentar, you didn't even get the correct population figures.....

Either Qataris made a concerted effor to flood the poll, Qatar gave a nice "contribution" to the sites owners, or visitors to the site are colletively should be checked for collective insanity.

Well, I remember a similar poll for the 2016 Olympics on another website. Tokyo trounced the other three cities because, I think, it had got round Japanese websites that that poll was on there. Internet polls are, of course, meaningless.

Qatar 2022 Bid Committee undertakes project in Syria



Doha: The Qatar 2022 Bid Committee continued its ambitious “Generation Amazing” initiative by partnering with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) to renovate football facilities and launch football development community programmes for youngsters in Yarmouk Palestine refugee camp in Damascus, Syria.

Yarmouk is home to the largest Palestinian refugee population in Syria.

“Generation Amazing” is a major project that uses sport as a tool for positive social and community development. Targeting schools in developing countries, the initiative aims to improve the quality of life of underprivileged youth through the power of football.

The bid committee has decided to build a football pitch in each host country and will focus on football development and leadership programs for coaches, teachers and students, with the goal of cultivating a new generation of leaders and sustainable sport and social development.

As part of the capacity-building aspect of the program, 45 trainees from UNRWA and the local community will receive hands on intense training on administrative, technical and organizational components of team coaching.

Cooperation with Right to Play will take place to leverage their proven curriculum of using sport as a social tool for development, education and community mobilization.

Right to Play staff will also oversee the delivery of the training program. Approximately 400 local Palestinian and Syrian youth between the ages of 9 and 18 are expected to benefit from the program which culminates in the formation of 20 football teams competing in a football tournament in September.

As an added bonus of rewarding the top students from each recipient country, the bid has organized a youth football tournament in four countries (Syria, Pakistan, Nepal and Lebanon) in order to select a total of 22 youth ambassadors to travel to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa this summer.

Earlier this month, sixteen children were selected in Nepal and Pakistan, and three children from Syria were chosen following a football tournament this past weekend in Yarmouk camp.

Hassan Al Thawadi, CEO of Qatar 2022 Bid Committee, described the Syria initiative as an important project for the bid and the communities that the program is designed to reach.

“These children struggle each day living in difficult circumstances. We want to make an impact through football, creating a positive outlet for children and fostering sustainable community development in the camp.”

Al Thawadi emphasised that the project in Syria would not end with the World Cup trip.

Our goal is a lasting legacy – from constructing and refurbishing pitches that children can use to providing positive community outlets going forward, we will continue our efforts in Syria because they are integral to how we view the global game, not just a sport, but a means for life and passion.

Roger Hearn, Director of UNRWA Affairs in Syria, has offered his full support to the initiative, saying that “any initiative that encourages physical activity, teamwork and the development of social skills amongst Palestine refugee youth is an initiative well worth supporting.”

The new pitch in Syria is designed to provide a quality, usable sports facility for children who at present have little or no opportunity to participate in athletic activity.

It will be available for use 24 hours a day, while previous facilities only could be used for a few hours per week.

Bid officials travelled to Syria to oversee the football tournament, and selected three exceptional Palestinian and Syrian children to be part of the exciting trip to the World Cup in South Africa this summer. THE PENINSULA

Get it right!
Qatar will have the population size of Cape Town by 2022! 3.3 million.

Qatar 2022 Bid projects to support youth

Doha: Qatar 2022 Bid has announced important football development programmes for local communities in Qatar to promote health, social integration, and opportunities for the youth and the non-elite football segments of the community.

Inspired by Qatar National Vision 2030 interrelated pillars of Human Development and Social Development, the programmes are based on the knowledge that without social care and protection there can be no equitable development; with the promotion of strong family values and an effective social safety net for local communities in Qatar. The projects are also in line with Qatar Football Association and the Qatar Olympic Committee’s existing efforts, and focus on the importance of using football as a tool for positive social and community development.

As part of the football infrastructure development, the programmes will include the refurbishment of existing training grounds. The newly refurbished pitches will be designed for 24-hour use and open to all segments of the community.

This aspect of the programme is in line with Qatar 2022’s commitment to creating a sustainable legacy locally and globally for the benefit of the community.

Qatar 2022 and its partners hope that through these initiatives, children, families and athletes will come together in the name of sport with the aim of facilitating greater awareness within the community, and creating a healthy society.

“Supporting the integration of local communities and promoting health in Qatar is a key part of the lasting legacy that we wish to leave to our people” Hassan Al Thawadi, CEO of the Qatar 2022 Bid, explains. “All our local projects emerge from the bid’s understanding that sport has the potential to transform lives and can be used as a powerful tool for social development.

Initiatives of this kind reinforce our desire to host the FIFA World Cup, and we understand the importance of a long-term commitment.”

Qatar 2022 sets out to be a completely new type of World Cup, creating a strong basis for the sport in the entire region.

In addition, it will be the first time the World Cup will come to the Middle East, a region brimming with sporting potential and passion. The Peninsula

So it seems to be a fight between Eng X Rus for 2018 and Qat x Usa for 2022. Interesting.

When the other stadiums will be revealed? All candidates have shown their stadiuns unless Qatar.
