Many World Cup Curiosities are related to Qatar
Many of the interesting facts following this World cup are related to the host country- Qatar. This is the first World Cup held in the Arab world, and the second one happening in Asia. Additionally, since Qatar is considered a small country (by both population and land size), it is also the smallest country ever to host this major event. On the other hand, it is the major sporting event ever held in the Middle East.
There is another record set by Qatar this year, but this one they will probably want to forget. By losing to Ecuador on the 20th of November, Qatar became the first host team ever to lose an opening game of World Cup.
It Is the First Ever World Cup Held During the Autumn
Spring or summer was always the time for this championship. But with average July temperature of 100F, we would probably have too many cases of heat exhaustion. So, November and December are probably the best choices.
This Is the Most Expensive World Cup Ever
Qatar is one of the richest countries in the world. And they for sure didn’t regret spending money on this World Cup. By investing more than $200 billion, they have exceeded 2010 South Africa Cup 60 times. The infrastructure, stadiums, airport, hotels. Everything is done to support this great event. That is probably one of the reasons why the tickets for this World Cup are the priciest ever.
Qatar 2022 Is the Most Compact World Championship
All the stadiums are within 34 miles of the center of Doha! This is the first time ever, and fans will be able to visit multiple games in one day, without flying or spending additional money. Plus, there is central air-conditioning in all arenas. By the end of the championship, they are expecting the highest number of visitors ever.
First Female Referees at Men’s World Cup
Three ladies: Yamashita Yoshimi, Salima Mukansanga and Stephanie Frappart have written the history by becoming first ever women to enforce the laws of the game during men’s world cup.
Alcohol Is Forbidden at Stadiums
Qatar authorities have decided to ban selling and bringing alcohol to the games during world cup. Many fans are used to enjoying beer or 2 (or 5) during games. It is hard to believe this rule be followed that strictly. But let’s hope there won’t be too many problems.
