Qatar World Cup 2022 Bid With the 2010 FIFA World Cup in our rear view mirror, soccer fans are still singing the catchy theme song “It’s time for Africa” by Shakira, but who will it be time for in 2022? According to FIFA rotation, since Brazil is hosting in 2014 and Europe in 2018, either Asia or North America will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The U.S., bidding on behalf of North America has already had the opportunity to host the 1994 World Cup, unlike Qatar bidding on behalf of Asia and the Middle East, but is Qatar capable of hosting this magnitude of an event? The answer is yes! Qatar has experience in hosting large sporting events, has the financial assets to make them possible, developed cooling technology to reduce temperatures in stadiums, will have improved infrastructure and more than adequate housing for teams and visitors alike. All of these factors are elements that FIFA looks at when choosing host countries for World Cups. The first factor FIFA considers when choosing a host country is whether or not it has the ability to organize and put on an event like a World Cup. Qatar impressed many with how it was able to organize and accommodate the 2006 Asian Games which included more than thirty events for men and women. The way in which thousands of volunteers were directed and utilized for this event is still unrivaled in the Middle East. Sepp Blatter, president of FIFA, endorsed the idea of Qatar being the host of the 2022 FIFA World Cup based on the country’s infrastructure and capability to orchestrate the 2006 Asian Games (Rhys, 2010). When it comes to soccer, Qatar hosted the 1988 AFC Asian Cup, the 1995 FIFA U-20 world cup, and is due to host the 2011 AFC Asian Cup affirming Qatar’s love of soccer and capability of hosting soccer events. Qatar placed a bid to host the 2018 World Cup, but was rejected because of the extremely high…...

...The Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup bid is the successful proposal from the government of Qatar to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

They also positioned their bid as an opportunity to bridge the gap between the Arab World and the West.[3] Qatar gave a feel of what the World Cup would be like by holding a friendly match between Brazil and Argentina.[4] Furthermore, people coming from different nations visited Qatar for this match and strengthened the image Qatar would depict of their interest in the World Cup 2022. Additionally, Qatar hosted the 2011 Asian Cup which had the lowest attendance for the cup in 11 years, since the tournament was held in Lebanon[citation needed]. It was considered a warm-up for 2022. President of FIFA Sepp Blatter endorsed the idea of having a World Cup in the Arab World, saying in April 2010, "The Arabic world deserves a World Cup. They have 22 countries and have not had any opportunity to organize the tournament." Blatter also praised Qatar's progress, "When I was first in Qatar there were 400,000 people here and now there are 1.6 million. In terms of infrastructure, when you......

Qatar 2022

...it was announced that Qatar would host the 2022 FIFA World Cup, after the FIFA Executive Committee voted in a secret ballot in Zurich. The government of Qatar’s successful proposal bid defeated four other candidates to stage the 2022 edition of the world’s greatest sporting event: Australia, Korea Republic, Japan and the United States of America. Qatar, with a population of 1.69 million people will be the first Arab state to host the World Cup. Consequently, Qatar is the smallest nation, both by relative population and by area, ever to have been awarded the tournament hosting privilege. The Qatar bid was emphasized as the only one representing the Arab World (which has never hosted a World Cup prior) and positioned their bid as an opportunity to bridge the gap between the Arab World and the West. Their hosting of the 2006 Asian Games as well as the 2011 Asian Cup proved to legitimize their capabilities of hosting the tournament. Further, its superior financial capabilities were evident in their proposals for new stadia and infrastructure. While the decision on 2 December 2010 brought delight to Qatar, it inversely brought concern and controversy in the West. A number of rival candidates, western groups and media outlets have expressed concern over the suitability of Qatar to host the event, with regard to climatic conditions, interpretations of human rights, press freedom and allegations of corruption.

The current format of the tournament involves 32 teams competing for the title at venues within the host nation over a period of about a month; this phase is often called the World Cup Finals.

The other World Cup winners are Italy, with four titles; West Germany, with three titles; Argentina and inaugural winners Uruguay, with two titles each; and England, France, and Spain, with one title each.

Should the Qatar World Cup Be Held

...Ever since the announcement in Zurich, Switzerland on December 2nd 2010, controversy started to come out about Qatar hosting one of the world’s biggest and prestigious tournaments in the world. The main issues surrounding Qatar’s World cup is that did they bribe FIFA officials into voting for them, also if the world cup was moved to the winter would major European leagues allow for a three month break halfway through their season. However if the event was moved to the winter, many would be not be happy as the World Cup has always been a Summer event and it would be breaking its tradition and with stadiums being built with air-conditioning and other modern features, in addition to this it has been suggested that games could commence at night. On the contrary, with many countries which have tropical climate’s having already hosted the competition and the tournament being hosted in Brazil next year, why weren’t questions asked about them hosting a winter World Cup. Firstly, why should the World Cup be moved from summer to winter, or even be re-voted – Many high ranking FIFA officials have spoken publically about their opinion that they want the event moved from summer to winter, or even the tournament moved to another country. The reason for the public outcry is that they fear for the player’s, official’s and fan’s safety at the event because of the soaring heat which can exceed past 50 degrees. In addition to this the average low temperature doesn’t fall beneath 30 degrees.......

Importance of Hosting the World Cup

...Importance of hosting the World Cup Ever since its conception in 1930, the World Cup was mainly hosted in the American and European countries. However, Africa and Asia won the 2002 and 2010 bids respectively, while Brazil hosted the 2014 tournament. Countries spend millions bidding for the world cup and hosting the event in the name of it being an investment and an opportunity to boost a nation’s profile. However, this expectation is not always the case because the returns accruing from the intended ‘economic boost’ are far outweighed by the costs. Host states have to substantially alter its budget to fund the event and the costly preparations at the expense of national issues. The sporting tournament is expected to accrue a number of benefits to a host country's economy, including an influx of tourism, creation of employment, improved infrastructure and a higher global profile. A country does gain from hosting the tournament, but not as much as anticipated. Consider South Africa, for instance, which hosted the 2010 World Cup. At the time, the state had a number of national issues to resolve such as poverty, crime and drugs. Instead, $ 4.1 billion was refocused from its priorities towards a short term sporting event at the expense of creating employment, facilitating education, funding sustainable infrastructure and mitigating social problems. In preparation for the 2010 sporting tournament, South Africa bore the costs of upgrading and constructing its facilities in......

Qatar

...article in The Guardian on Thursday September 26th 2013 about the conditions for migrant workers in Qatar. Qatar has imported a high amount of foreign workers to complete stadiums, hotels and infrastructure before the 2022 World Cup, which is being held in Qatar. A high number of these workers come from Nepal and India. The working conditions are criticized by both an investigation led by The Guardian and the Nepali embassy. According to The Guardian, the workers are working under so horrendous conditions that they lead to sickness and high number of deaths. Qatari unions have warned that, there could be more than 4000 deaths before 2022. The general secretary of The International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) Sharan Burrow, states that the Qatari government are not reacting on this issue, and therefore it is unsolved. Even though only few of the deaths have conducted autopsies, he claims that there is no doubt that the workers are dying because of the conditions they work under. He claims that there should be implemented the highest standards for the 2022 World Cup – also in concern of the workers. The Nepalese ambassador agrees with this, but has returned to Nepal. B. Discussion In all times it has been a discussion on whether some countries were to be allowed to host countries for the biggest sport events. The Olympic games, European Championship and World Cup are all sport events that will be economical beneficial for the host country. Therefore it has......

World Cup 2010: Africa’s Ultimate Example of Globalization

...The World Cup is an international spectacle that has the ability to bring excitement to all corners of the world. The World Cup has always been an example of globalization, because, essentially, globalization is the transforming of a local happening or product into a global happening or product. According to the governing body of football, the Fédération Internationale de Football Association, “The FIFA World Cup™ in South Africa is an international event with great historic importance to the African continent. It will be the first FIFA World Cup ever to be hosted in Africa since the competition began in 1934, and I am convinced that Africa is ready to welcome this momentous FIFA World Cup with open arms. I am also convinced that the host nation, South Africa, will be up to the task, not least because it has abundant potential and resources (#1)” Given all of this information, one cannot deny that the World Cup is an obvious example of globalization, and the 2010 World Cup in South Africa will be Africa’s greatest display of Globalization to date. In order to accurately access South Africa as a site for a huge international event such as the World Cup 2010, one must first look at the various social problems that are existent in South Africa. When looking at any African country, the fact that most African countries have only been independent for less than a century must be factored into any assessment. The majority of African countries have a number of social problems...

Qatar Worls Cup

...In December 2010, Qatar won its bid to host the 2022 World Cup. In preparation, Qatar will spend an estimated US$100 billion on infrastructure, including a new airport, roads, hotels and stadiums. As Qatar has begun building the infrastructure to host the World Cup, worker advocacy groups and human rights groups have sounded alarm about whether all the workers needed to build the infrasturcture would receive adequate workplace protections. Living and working conditions for some migrants in Qatar are appalling. Long hours in the blazing heat, low pay and squalid dormitories, are a daily ordeal for thousands - and they cannot leave without an exit visa. A last year stated Nepalese migrant workers were dying A report by Qatar’s government found 964 deaths of migrants from India, Nepal and Bangladesh in 2014. at a rate of one every two days and attributed those deaths to construction of the stadium. The Nepalese embassy in Qatar reported that 400 Nepalese workers had died working on World Cup projects since 2010. The Indian embassy reported that 500 Indian workers had died in Qatar since 2012. Whether the cause of death is labelled a work accidents, heart attack (brought on by the life threatening effects of heat stress) or diseases from squalid living conditions, the root cause is the same – working conditions “We know that people who work long hours in high temperatures are highly vulnerable to fatal heat strokes, so obviously these figures continue to cause alarm,”......
