What a joke! As a huge soccer fan, I am really disappointed in FIFA’s decision. Come on! Are you serious!? How is FIFA going to choose a sandy desert that is not even the size of Connecticut with no soccer history to host the cup? I don’t even think Qatar has ever qualified for a World Cup to begin with. I cannot see why Qatar was picked ahead of, not only the United States but over Australia, South Korea and Japan. The United States already has the facilities to host the World Cup this year if they wanted while Qatar is going to have to take the next 12 years just to prepare. This is dumbfounding. I understand that the Middle East has never hosted a World Cup which makes this historic, but do people really want to travel to the Middle East is my main concern. I can tell you that I have no plans on going to Qatar. I also think weather can have a serious impact on this cup since it will be played in 100 plus degree weather. As you can tell, I am really upset with FIFA’s decision (no disrespect to the Middle Eastern nations). This is a huge blow to US Soccer. What are your thoughts? Are you going to Qatar to watch the 2022 World Cup?
Qatar beats out the United States to host the 2022 World Cup.
