Qatar having won the bid to host the FIFA World Cup in 2022 against favourites England, i started wondering about the many obstacles that might take place:
– Can Qatar organize the world cup during the summer with its scorching temperatures? Frank Beckenbauer suggested it be held in January or February.
– Will there be alcohol in pubs and restaurants?
– Will the Qatari officials allow “inappropriate” clothes in the stadiums? on the streets? or on the beaches?
I have no doubt the Qatari will pull a great world cup in terms of stadiums and facilities, but i don’t see how they will be able to manage the World Cup fans.
