Interesting facts about the 2022 FIFA World Cup
One of the most interesting facts about the 2022 World Cup is that it will be held in Qatar, making it the first time the tournament has been held in the Middle East. In the past few years, Qatar has changed a lot. Modern stadiums and infrastructure have been built in preparation for the tournament.
This is FIFA’s first-ever winter world cup.
Because winter arrives in the Southern Hemisphere in the summer, the world cup is usually held in the summer. Summer temperatures in Qatar can reach 50 degrees Fahrenheit, making the country an unsuitable venue for the World Cup. As a result, FIFA decided to hold the championship in the winter, which will begin on November 21st, 2022 and conclude on December 18th, 2022.
It is the most costly World Cup.
Among the many intriguing aspects of the FIFA 2022 World Cup is that Qatar will host the tournament in all its spectacular glory.
The wealthiest nation on Earth is reportedly paying out $200 billion to host the tournament.
The infrastructure, development, and advertising initiatives are all included here.
Qatar to host the game in fewer stadiums.
The world cup will be hosted by eight stadiums, the fewest in FIFA world cup history after Argentina hosted it with six stadiums in 1978. Only one of the eight stadiums is old, with the other seven being brand new for the championship. All the stadiums are within reach of each other and are a masterpiece of Qatari culture and tradition.
The nation expects a record of visitors during the World cup.
As a Middle Eastern country in the center of the other world, visitors are more likely to attend the 2022 World Cup than any other. Expecting record visitors, the government has arranged all the travel and accommodation facilities for all the expected football lovers. A total of 1300 flights have been daily charted to the nation for a whole month as part of the big game.
It will be the most commutable world cup.
Apart from anticipating a record number of visitors, Qatar will become the most commutable world cup in the championship’s history because of its small size. The stadiums are close to each other and with transport facilities like the metro and bus, so watching the games in various stadiums is easier and more comfortable than you expect.
The first-ever middle east country to host the world cup.
Though the Middle East countries have been at the top of the world in recent years, Qatar only succeeded in achieving host status. It is also the first Muslim-majority nation to welcome the championship. Simultaneously, the 2022 world cup is also recognized as the second-ever game to be held in Asia after the 2002 world cup, co-hosted by Japan and South Korea.
FIFA 2022 is The Second Ever FIFA World Cup To Be Held In Asia.
In 2022, Qatar will make history as the first country in the MENA region to host the FIFA World Cup. This will mark only the second time the tournament has been held in Asia.
In 2002, Japan and South Korea became the first Asian countries to organize a FIFA event jointly.
Thus, Qatar would mark history by hosting the first-ever FIFA World Cup in the Middle East in 2022.
This world cup will be the most hospitable game ever.
It is well known that hospitality is synonymous with Arabian culture. And when hosting a game like the FIFA world cup, Qatar will undoubtedly unleash its hospitality in full glory and power. Intertwined with tradition and culture, the people and the places will genuinely welcome the visitors and give them a wonderful experience of the game, the nation, and the natives.
Centrally Air-Conditioned Stadiums.
Qatar, the host country for FIFA 2022, experiences extremely high daytime temperatures, one of the most important things to remember about the country. Since summertime temperatures often reach 50 degrees Celsius, it was nearly impossible to organize the World Cup there. However, moving the tournament to the winter has offered welcome relief. But is that all there is?
Winter daytime highs can be pretty warm. This is why Qatar has devised a plan to address the issue. In a first for the country, all of the venues hosting the World Cup will be climate-controlled. Each of the eight stadiums will include state-of-the-art air conditioning, ensuring that fans and players are comfortable on the field.
Another interesting fact is that the 2022 World Cup will be the first to use video assistant referees (VAR), which will help to ensure fair play and reduce the impact of mistakes made by on-field referees. The use of VAR has been controversial in some quarters, but it is expected to be a major step forward for the sport.
Overall, the 2022 FIFA World Cup promises to be an exciting and memorable event, with many interesting facts and storylines to follow. Whether you are a soccer fan or just enjoy watching international sporting events, the World Cup provides plenty of entertainment and drama.
