Go ... Qatar and watch haters
And all this doesn't have absolutely nothing to do with organizing World Cup. Luxembourg has highest GDP in the world. Are they capable of hosting it? Let's be real guys...

You guys are really ancient, research first before speaking out, Qatar has the highest GDP per capita in the world since 2008.

And as qatarson said, most of you guys are ruining the thread by posting the same posts in the previous, and as if doing in purpose to hijack this thread.

No, we're trying to get answers about how realistic it is to expect a country with one only city big to host a world cup. And I'm still thinking a five to ten fold increase in league attendences, which is what you'll need to avoid white elephants, is unrealistic. Nobody has given me any figures to show me that this is in the slightest bit realistic.

This thread isn't being hijacked. It's just that sensible questions aren't being answered.

First or second... doesn't really man much, you got my point.

We are not "ruining" this thread. We are just trying to show you how delusional and ignorant you are about this subject. We have right on our own opinion i suppose.

well Doha can host it for many reasons one of these reasons it is new modern city and much modern than London , Chicago , Tokyo , Atlanta and already some of these old cities hosted it, man I dont blame you because you are living in old city when it is flood you cant even use the metro and the life stop in your city I invite you to watch the future by visiting Doha or Dubai and then you will find answers to your old questions.

In Cape Town we have about 4 million people. We will now bid for the World Cup in 2026.

So in other words, you can't answer them so instead decide to have a go at my "old" city.

Well, that's your argument won clearly!

And FYI, London has not hosted a world cup, England has. That's because it has several cities large enough to. Qatar doesn't. You're talking as though Doha could host a world cup by itself !

And before you decide to attack London again, remember which city won the 2012 Olympic race and which city didn't even shortlist in the 2016 race. London may not be as slick as Doha in some respects but it's a world-class city that rivals Tokyo and New York. If you want to continue this line of argument, take me on, but there'll only be one winner.

Don't even bother going to Dubai !! jobs are cut and projects are getting stopped, the boom over there IS OVER, while here in Doha which isnt that far from Dubai, projects are being built and opened, infact earlier this month the Qatar Science and Technology park was opened while in december 2008 The Museum of Islamic Art opened for the public.... so its not all about Oil and Gas...

Acctually, qatarson has a point.... your cities took way to long to develope... look at Doha... it did what your cities did in just 30 years !! and yes why not, come see Doha how its developing, your more than welcome, were a friendly nation .

We scored higher than Rio in the 2016 olympics bid... but we didnt make the short list because of the dates set... (lesson learned: dont choose dates out of the specified period... which means world cup will be hosted in 45C heat, airconditioned stadiums are going to be built)

BTW the Stadiums built are part of the Qatar 2030 vision anyways so it will be built even if were not chosen for the bid....

The world has globalized massively over the last 30 years and Doha is the main city of a small nation who employed aggressive expansion tactics. Our cities grew through natural progression there is a massive difference.

Modern doesn't = better.

Yeh, all architectural and cultural heritage in Europe is useless and it should be crashed to make room for 400m tall modern glass boxes. Awesome way of thinking

i didnt say that :P look at paris... the soil is too weak to support tall buildings, thus Le Defense and who said our culture/heritage was not developed ? most building now contain a feature of the Qatari architecture... like the old souk (Souq Waqif) and even towers and public buildings... all have features of the Qatari architecture and its being increased in a modern way

Qatar is a rich country, but very small. They can build 20 new stadiums, but were? All in Doha? About the olympic candidature, they have the required structure but has eliminated. Why? The whole desertic country, divided in only 10 municipalities, have the population of one million people. Less the womans that can't go to stadiums, rests 400.000 mens. This means empty stadiums.

I don't think that FIFA will make a World Cup in 4 cities, were the fanatics english an german supporters can't be drunk with beer.
