World Cup

In 2010, Qatar won the right to host the world's most extraordinary sporting event, the FIFA 2022 World Cup. In the twelve years leading up to the 2022 tournament, the country was extremely productive. Eight new stadiums were built (seven from scratch and one extensively renovated), alongside new training facilities, a host of sports venues and associated tournament facilities, including state-of-the-art fan zones. And with over a million visitors landing on Qatar's shores during the tournament period, new hotels, resorts, apartments and other places to stay were also constructed, as well as a new Metro and light rail system, new highways and byways, new parks, new tourist attractions and sights, and a host of other amenities. 

Though the 2022 tournament has been successfully played out and the masses of football fans and supporters have returned home, the legacy of all the hard work and preparations that went into the event, one of the most successful in World Cup history, remains. Though designed to be redeveloped to ensure their continued contribution to the nation, its people and the economy, the stadiums and their precincts will remain focal points for the local community and iconic landmarks to attract visitors. Sporting facilities continue to host national, regional and international sports events and provide amenities for the local populace. The myriad of sights and attractions, hotels and resorts are a beacon for tourism. And the country's much-improved infrastructure will continue to support the nation's residents and its many visitors from now until the foreseeable future.

So, in a bid to help everyone navigate Qatar's post-2022 tournament, this section of the website is dedicated to all things post-World Cup.
