Fans who come to Qatar may have to sleep outside. FIFA estimates that 1-2 million people will come to Qatar to watch the FIFA World Cup 2022 final round.
However, the host country admits it can only provide a maximum of 130,000 hotel rooms, of which 90,000 are for online booking platforms.
Obviously with the number of hotel rooms not enough demand, up to 90% of people who come to Qatar to watch the World Cup will not have a hotel room to stay. Not to mention the number of fans that can increase when a national team enters the next round.
The plan proposed by Qatar to solve this problem is to set up tents for the fans to let them sleep outside. There will be enough minimum amenities if they use these tents, EXCEPT the air conditioner.
Although the 2022 World Cup will take place in winter, daytime temperatures in the desert are still very high and low in the evening, extremely harmful to health.
The price per tent, according to Qatar announced is 80-100 USD / night, but the price on the booking software, the number has reached 200 USD / night due to high demand.
However, the tents only meet a part of the needs of football fans. Qatar is developing a plan to bring audiences to stay at hotels in neighboring countries, such as flying to Qatar to watch football in the morning, and flying to the UAE in the afternoon to rest. But football fans will have to spend a lot of money.
