Although hosting a mega sports event like the FIFA World Cup can be a big challenge for a small Asian country, Qatar has been impressive. From reserving beds for traveling fans to the construction of world-class amenities like stadiums, roads, lodges, etc., Qatar is setting the benchmark for future hosts. In this section, there would be comprehensive information regarding the stadium and its surroundings. This should be particularly helpful for traveling fans.

The Qatar World Cup will be the first-ever FIFA World Cup taking place in the Arab World. Moreover, it is only the second World Cup held entirely in Asia after the 2002 FIFA World Cup in South Korea and Japan. Hosting a World Cup is an expensive affair. Reportedly, Qatar has invested nearly 200 million USD into its preparations. A major chunk of this has gone into the venue preparations. The four principles focused on during stadium construction are unique designs, environment friendliness, energy efficiency, and sustainability.

FIFA world cup 2022 tickets

Apart from Stadium information, one major thing for traveling fans is ticket availability. Traveling fans now have a straight chance to book their tickets for the Qatar World Cup. These ticket sales are now live and can be accessed directly by clicking here.

FIFA World Cup 2022 tickets are of four different types:

  • Individual Match Tickets: These tickets are available for all the matches except the opening and the final games. Such tickets will only permit entry for one selected game as the name suggests.
  • Team Specific Tickets: These tickets are available only for the group stage games of the 30 qualified teams. Fans can select matches of their favorite team and pay a premium for these tickets. Soon, fans will be able to book tickets for the rest two teams yet to qualify.
  • Four-Stadium Ticket: These tickets give fans entry privileges to four matches at four different stadiums on successive days. This ticket is from a fan-friendly standpoint. This guarantee that tourists also travel enough of Qatar as well as enjoy their football.
  • Accessibility Tickets: As the name suggests, these are especially for differently-abled spectators. It is one great initiative from FIFA to make the Qatar World Cup more exclusive.

There are innovative new features like Fan ID. Officially called the Hayya Card. It helps traveling fans access accommodations and transport facilities easily. As mentioned earlier, Qatar has invested 200 million USD in the development of facilities. This also includes budget and premium options for accommodation especially built for FIFA World Cup. It is a compulsory service and every traveling fan must have a Hayya card to attend any of the 64 FIFA World Cup games. Moreover, FIFA will observe strict COVID-19 measures.

The popularity of the FIFA world cup

Iran National Football Team Live Streaming

The FIFA World Cup is often called the biggest sports tournament. It is watched by almost all countries of the world. It attracts a huge fan base of traveling spectators as well. But, the main reason why Football World Cup is so popular is that football carries certain advantages over other games. Let’s understand those in detail.

Why is football so popular?

Football is such a popular sport that it is known by a different name in the Americas. It is called soccer in that part of the world. When the game has a regional variation in the name as well, one can imagine its pull. There are five prime reasons that we could highlight for football being so popular. Here they are.

Varying styles of play

Unlike most sports, football has a higher entertainment value because there are uncountable styles of playing football. Each time plays differently. There is no way to make a certain guess ahead of a reasonable approximation of what they must expect from their opponents. The crowd and players themselves, are always open to the element of surprise. As they say, no two games of football are absolutely similar.

Accessibility to the game

Another reason why football is so popular and FIFA World Cup gets such traction is the accessibility of the sport. Football is much less expensive compared to other sports. It needs much less amount of expensive necessary equipment. In many countries, football is played barefooted on streets, beaches, parks, etc. The pull of the game, therefore, is magnificent. Almost everyone relates to the players who play on the biggest stage due to this inclusivity of football.

The fan-factor

Being a football fan, especially a fan of any of the FIFA World Cup teams is considered a privilege. The passion of the fans exceeds international borders and this sense of belonging to one selected fandom is higher than patriotism. This fan factor of passion has been a recurring reason aiding the huge success of the sport in general and the FIFA World Cup in particular.

Inclusivity of Football

The final reason is a very sensitive one. One that more sports want to but cannot entail. Football is for everyone. There is no certain kind of footballer. Players can belong to any country, race, region, etc. Players also do not need to meet any certain health criteria. There have been overweight footballers to footballers whose heights have been below the national average. There’s no bar on football, anyone can play it, and anyone can enjoy it. It is the true game of billions.

Qatar’s preparation for the upcoming FIFA world cup 2022

The decision for Qatar to host FIFA World Cup 2022 was made as early as December 2010. Qatar won a bid that game them this right. It thus becomes the first middle-eastern country to host the FIFA World Cup. A bill of 200 million USD was sanctioned for carrying out the tournament’s expenses. These have been used in developing a host of facilities starting from Stadiums to Roads, Hotels, etc. The focus of each step has been to make a memorable experience for the fans. The work has been done especially to resonate with four prime principles- legacy, sustainability, hospitality, and social development.

Qatar world cup: Legacy

This is one of the most emotional aspects of any FIFA World Cup edition. And, Qatar has undoubtedly set another benchmark here. They are about to become the first middle-eastern hosts of the marquee football contest. Secondly, they are planning to continue their impact on the region’s youth and make it their legacy. The stadiums are all done in molecular design. This means 50% of the venue settings can be withdrawn. Qatar is planning to donate these seats to football academies around the country to help in the grassroots development of the game. The areas within such stadiums and academies will develop into budding centers of business. High-quality sporting facilities, hospitals, parks, schools, transport links, shopping centers, and places of worship will all be incorporated into the mix.

Qatar world cup: Sustainability

We are living in the age of climate change. As such, planning a global event like the FIFA World Cup entails that sustainability is taken charge. The world needs more sustainable approaches. The FIFA World Cup means that a quarter of the world’s population will be physically present in Qatar during the FIFA World Cup Schedules. And, almost the entire population will be watching through television broadcasts. This gives the perfect stage to showcase the ideals of sustainability.

Qatar’s unique bid that won the right to host FIFA World Cup 2022 was its sustainable stadium designs. These innovative designs led to lesser usage of energy in cooling systems. Right from the construction to the installation of mechanics, sustainability was the first concern. In January 2020, all Qatar World Cup venues received their sustainability certification from the Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS). Every single Stadium will follow the ideals of water conservation, carbon management, environmental protection, and urban connectivity to ensure sustainability.

The same approach has been taken up for the construction of Roads and Hotels among other facilities prepared for the Qatar World Cup. Sustainability also entails inclusivity. As such, Qatar has come up with special privileges for differently-abled fans. The special facilities include priority parking, wheelchair ramps, and accessible seating.

Qatar world cup: Hospitality

Middle-eastern hospitality is a prime feature of the Arabic lifestyle. Expectedly, Qatar is making required preparations to keep the players and fans well treated during the FIFA World Cup 2022. Firstly, Qatar is a comparatively hotter country than Europe or the Americas, where most of the travelers will be hailing from. Therefore, new cooling systems underlining the ideals of sustainability have been employed to keep the travelers cooled always.

To add to the fan-friendly nature that Qatar is stressing, they have made improvements to transportation. Firstly, several connecting roads are constructed. These will be brand new when the fans land for the World Cup. Moreover, new metro rails have been added to make commutation easier for the traveling fans.

Qatar world cup: Social development

And finally, the most important of all ideals is the development part. Qatar is trying to aid the power, popularity, and pull of football to lead a wave of social, economic, human, and environmental change. They are launching programs like Generation Amazing, supporting regional innovators, ensuring the safety and security of workers on Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy projects, and initiatives such as Community Engagement and Josoor Institute. These are all expected to aid in an era of change in middle-east and entire Asia.

We only provide you with authentic information on the history of the FIFA World Cup. It is a glorious sports competition with a massive history. Knowing the records is what creates all the excitement for the upcoming Qatar World Cup. We hope you enjoy learning about the world cup as much as we did while compiling all this information for you. Thanks for visiting us to enrich your knowledge of FIFA World Cup 2022.

Key players for Qatar world cup

The Qatar World Cup is going to be very special. Not because it is already breaking ground in terms of budget, preparation, and technology. But, because it could be the final world cup for two legends of the modern game. I am of course talking about Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. While the two have been absolute icons of the modern game, none of them has yet won the World Cup.

The Qatar World Cup could be the final chance for these aging veterans. Cristiano Ronaldo became the first of the two to lift an international trophy when Portugal won the European Championship in 2016. Later, he also won the inaugural Nations League with Portugal to make it two. Lionel Messi, on the other hand, has been slow but steady. He picked up the Copa America Cup earlier in the season. And, very recently, he won the Finalissima, the UEFA-CONMEBOL Champions Cup by beating Italy. That makes for two International honors for Messi as well. This upcoming FIFA World Cup could very well be the one to settle the score, once and for all.

Apart from these two, several more players look to be in their final World Cup. Croatia’s midfield magician, Luka Modric is one of them. Wales’s Gareth Bale is another. This world cup is bound to be high on emotions. Other key players include England captain, Harry Kane, Poland’s lethal Robert Lewandowski, etc.

Possible breakout players for Qatar world cup

There would be many scouts present in the upcoming Qatar FIFA World Cup. As such, they’d also have a lot of work to do as some of the best teenage talents will be on show on the biggest stage. The list of possible breakouts is really long. But, here are a few that need to be mentioned.

Firstly, France’s wunderkind, Aurelien Tchuoameni is someone who is expected to get an extended run in the World Cup squad this year. The same is the case with Qatar’s Akram Afif. He hasn’t been glorified as the European Stars. But, he is the best young player in Asia, in my opinion. Brazil’s winger, Anthony, Netherlands’ Jurrien Timber, and Portugal’s Rafael Leao are other names that stand out.

There is another category of players who would be expected to break out of the national squads. But, these players aren’t in eyes of transfer scouts. This is because their club career is already well on track. Brazil’s Vinicius Junior is one such player. Spain’s young midfielder Pedri also falls in the same category. Regardless, the Qatar World Cup is a great opportunity for these young teenage stars to show what they are capable of in their national outfits.

FIFA world cup 2022: Official match ball

After the week that the draw for the 2022 FIFA World Cup took place in Doha, the official match ball which will be used at the tournament in Qatar was been unveiled by Argentina’s captain Lionel Messi in association with Adidas.

Adidas unveiled the Al Rihla match ball. It is the 14th consecutive match ball supplied for a FIFA World Cup by the same manufacturer. The relationship now dates back over 50 years.

In all these years, there have been 22 different match ball designs used since the first FIFA World Cup that took place in Uruguay in 1930. The Adidas era only began with the introduction of the classic Telstar ball at the 1970 World Cup held in Mexico.

Brazil Team

Since the very first FIFA World Cup was held in 1930 the changing materials and designs used for soccer balls are a way of charting the evolution of the game. Over the past century, the journey has been from a more unsophisticated era to the ultramodern professionalism that entails today in football.

The ‘Al Rihla’ is a name that translates from Arabic into English as “the journey”. It is a 20-panel design that Adidas says is inspired by the architecture, art, and national flag of Qatar. To reduce air resistance in what could be one of the hottest FIFA World Cup ever, the ball appears completely seamless. And, the shape of the thermally-bonded panels is directly inspired by the sails of the famous Dhow boats. These are emblematic of the Gulf state. And, is a major icon of the middle-eastern way of life.

How to watch Qatar world cup 2022 on TV?

The FIFA World Cup has partnered with numerous Sports TV operators around the world to ensure coverage. First of all, Sony TV has bought the rights for broadcast within the Indian Subcontinent. Various smaller operators like Sim TV and Net TV in Nepal will legally copy Sony’s broadcast for their viewers. In Sri Lanka as well, the same will happen. The channel responsible for the Island Nation is SLRC Eye Channel, Peo TV, and Dialog TV. In the Maldives, Medianet is the legal destination.

In the United Kingdom, BBC, as it always does has bought all television rights. In the United States of America, a familiar name, Fox Sports are in-charge.

Other notable European broadcasters include Antenna TV Network of Greece, Rai of Italy, and Mediapro of Spain.

South and Latin America are other significant hotspots of Football fans. The Brazilian giant of Sports TV operations, Globo has taken up the responsibility here. Their broadcasts will be accessible to the entire Brazil and the Caribbean regions. The host country of Qatar has 2Sport2 to help them out. In the other regions of middle-east, especially the North African and Middle-eastern region (MENA), beIN Sports and Al Jazeera are working in Unison.

Canada has also developed a great footballing culture. Their team is going to the World Cup and, naturally, there would be an official broadcaster there. The agency in Canada is called Bell Media.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Live Streaming Information

Cable TV is quickly becoming a thing of the past. All sports including football are hit by a digital wave. The said wave is of course led by the Over the Top (OTT) platforms. Alongside the official broadcasters, FIFA World Cup has also partnered with OTT platforms of the same broadcasters or otherwise. This is because largely people today prefer to use such streaming platforms for their better appeal and service over regular television.

Firstly, Sony Network’s official OTT, Sony Liv will operate within the Indian Subcontinent. BBC’s BBC iPlayer and the ITV platform will both be operational with FIFA World Cup Live Streaming. Lastly, in the USA, there are plenty of options like fuboTV, SlingTV, Hulu+ Live TV, AT & T TV Now, or Youtube TV. These official platforms are the best live streaming football service. However, these can be expensive because there is a subscription fee involved.

World cup free streaming information

For fans who’d like to stream the FIFA World Cup without any cost, there are plenty of free options available. However, for all of these free methods, users will need a VPN connection. A VPN is a mandatory amenity to have while streaming on unsecured free websites. The first free method for Streaming World Cup 2022 is via free live TV platforms like USTV GO and Free Inter TV. Such platforms run the mirror of the official broadcast. Therefore, tuning into any official TV Channel on such platforms enables one to view the World Cup games.

The second method is through traditional sports streaming websites. But, whenever on such platforms make sure to watch out for malicious popup ads and excessive tracking. Always use a VPN and an Adblocker if you’re a regular in the free streaming space. There are quite a few to choose from. However, for the best free live football streaming experience, we recommend the following.

There is one final hack using a VPN. One can also choose to subscribe to a cheap OTT like Sony Liv from other parts of the world like the UK or the USA. One would need to have an Indian connection, a friend, or a relative who could subscribe for them. Afterwards, they can easily log in to those accounts from any part of the world using a VPN.
