Excitement for FWC grows as qualifiers gain momentum
A hat trick by Neymar, the Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil forward, was the highlight of the first FWC qualifiers in South America. Argentina’s Leo Messi scored the only goal against Peru.
Both superstars are looking forward to the first-ever Football Spectacle in the Middle East, taking place from 20 November to 18 December 2022.
Qatar, considered to be the richest country in the world, is gearing up for the showpiece event. While the progress of the stadium construction projects is widely reported the housing situation becomes more and more the hot topic.
With several hotel projects still underway, Qatar will offer 35.000 hotel rooms only and expects to host 1 million visitors to its country of 2.3m inhabitants.
Most hotels will be needed to host FIFA’s constituent groups, including the teams and referees.
The shortfall will be accommodated in alternative housing, requiring that most fans stay in apartments across the capital Doha.
Khaya, a leading provider of accommodation solutions at major sports events, has released a brochure showcasing various options, ranging from luxurious 3-bedroom apartments at The Pearl to low-budget options in Doha’s south.
“We can offer the widest selection of accommodation ever at a FWC”, says Volkhard Bauer, Group CEO of Khaya.
“I have to thank our team in Doha, which has worked very hard to secure apartments and villas in all price segments”.
