82-Soccer Or Football : FIFA World Cup 2022 - Qatar

FIFA World Cup 2022

Qatar brings the World Cup to the smallest host ever, but one that has unparalleled financial clout to stage the world’s biggest single-sport event. Qatar will stage the World Cup in and around Doha in a desert summer but promises state-of-the-art technology to cool fans and players alike. There are two main minus points selecting Qatar over USA -
1- The United States population is a huge consumer of sports with a gigantic media apparatus that is always looking for fresh content. By selecting Qatar over the US, FIFA is leaving billions of dollars on the table.
2- Giving the World Cup to Qatar prevents China from getting one until at least 2034. People are astounded on this choice.

Qatar's plans for the 2022 FIFA World Cup include 12 eco-friendly, carbon-neutral stadiums.

All of the stadiums will harness the power of the Sun's rays to provide a cool environment for players and fans by converting solar energy into electricity that will then be used to cool both fans and players. When games are not taking place, the solar installations at the stadiums will export energy onto the power grid. During matches, the stadiums will draw energy from the grid. This is the basis for the stadium's carbon-neutrality.

The upper tier of 9 of the stadiums will be removed after the tournament. One, Doha Port Stadium, will be completely modular, and will be deconstructed following the FIFA World Cup. During the event, if Qatar will win the right to host, the capacity of most stadiums will be between 40,000 and 50,000 fans, with one much larger stadium for hosting the opening and final matches, amongst others. When the tournament ends, the lower tiers of the stadiums will remain in Qatar. Able to accommodate between 20,000 and 25,000 fans, the smaller stadiums will be suitable for football and other sports.

The upper tiers will be sent to developing nations, which often lack sufficient football infrastructure. We see sending the stadiums to developing nations as an integral part of our bid, as doing so will allow for the further development of football on the global stage. Along with the stadiums, we plan to make the cooling technologies we have developed available to other countries in hot climates, so that they too can host major sporting events.

Cloud Over Stadium - [Updated on 3/22/11]
There will be an artificial cloud to hover above the stadium and provide the shade. The head of mechanical and industrial engineering at Qatar University said the cloud would be positioned by remote control and run on solar power. the cloud isn't white and fluffy. It is flat and rectangular, resembling a giant cell phone, and will be built using light carbonic materials. The cost of the cloud is $500,000, but money is not a problem for Qatar.
