Host country Qatar stadium shortage problem stumbling block

BBC's "Nobel Prize President Infantino's Plan Has Failed"

(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Park Jae-hyun = FIFA has decided to hold the World Cup finals in Qatar in 2022 in 32 countries.
FIFA, on the 22nd (local time) on its official website, said, "After examining the feasibility of the FIFA Council, we reviewed plans to increase the participation of the Qatar World Cup in 2022 to 48 countries." I thought it was impossible to participate in the country. ”
FIFA said, We looked at the possibility of easing certain requirements to expand the participating countries “We have to consider the current stages of preparation for the competition and the impact on neighboring countries. "He added.
As a result, the Qatar World Cup finals in 2022 will be held in 32 countries, according to FIFA.

Originally, FIFA had decided to expand the finalists from 32 countries to 48 countries from the 2026 World Cup.

Last year, however, the council, the FIFA decision-making body, could speed up the expansion of its participating countries by four years.
This has been actively pursued since early this year, led by Zanni Infantino, chairman of FIFA.

Infantino has long argued that the World Cup should be "more comprehensive."

"Soccer should be a global sport beyond Europe and South America," he said. "That's the future of football."
Infantino explained that the expansion of the participating countries should increase the chances of other continental countries except Europe and South America to take part in the World Cup finals, thereby increasing their interest in football.
In March, the FIFA Council decided that the feasibility study would make it feasible to hold the 2022 competition in 48 countries.

FIFA's main purpose to accelerate the expansion of participating countries is to increase profits.

According to the Associated Press, FIFA expects to generate up to $ 400 million in additional revenue if the Qatar World Cup is expanded from 32 countries to 48 countries through an internal feasibility study.
The problem was the lack of a stadium that could accommodate the growing number of matches.

Since it was decided to host the World Cup, Qatar has been building eight stadiums with 32 countries participating in a total of 64 matches.
However, when the number of participating countries increased to 48 countries, the number of matches increased by 16 games, which required two additional stadiums.

It was difficult to accommodate this in Qatar, so cooperation with neighboring countries was necessary, but this was not green.
Neighboring countries, such as the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Saudi Arabia, which have good stadium conditions, are in ties with Qatar.
Other neighboring countries Kuwait and Oman are in poor condition.
The BBC said, Infantino, who has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, has been pushing for the expansion of Qatar's undesired nations. Evaluated.
In a statement, the Qatar World Cup Organizing Committee said, "Qatar has always been open to expanding the participating countries of the 2022 World Cup." Said.
