  1. Absolute joke, Qatar has never qualified for a World Cup before either and now they get to just because they are hosting. Now a good Asian/Middle Eastern team will not make it. Also, I feel as if the US is ready right now to host. What’s even funnier is FIFA told Qatar that their stadiums must have AC capabilties in them lol.

    • Qatar itself proposed Air Conditioned stadiums. Plus, one of their selling points was when the cup is over, the stadiums are able to be packed up, dismantled and shipped to poored countries.

  2. You can thank your good buddy Sepp Blatter (FIFA Prez for non followers) for this atrocity. Sepp just wants extend his empire and legacy to say he was the first one to bring the world cup to Africa, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East. What a freaking joke from FIFA.

  3. This is super disappointing, we lost out on the summer Olympics in Chicago and now the 2022 WC. At least the Olympics was to Rio De Janeiro (which would be awesome to go to), but Quatar?? Not exactly on my list of places I want to spend money to go and visit, plus with all the instability in that part of the world I think safety is a concern.

    • Bingo. Glad somebody brought it up regarding safety. That is my number 1 concern to be honest. I just don’t know how safe I’d feel going over there. Here’s to hoping that in 2022, the safety issue isn’t as big of a concern. Somehow, I doubt it, though.

      • Yeah, how many Caucasians do you think are saying ” I can’t wait to go to Qatar!” right now.

  4. One thing I do have to admit, the designs of the proposed stadiums to look bad ass. But I think out of all those countries USA is most ready to host. We also are the most diverse county in the world! Bring the cup back here.
