Here are 7 reasons why FIFA World Cup 2022 is making headlines


1.Rumor that Qatar May Have Bought the Rights to Host the World Cup

There have been many claims about bribery and corruption that made the right people cast their votes for Qatar. Since 2011, there have been countless reports about this, even involving then FIFA vice-president Jack Warner.


2.It has turned out to be  Most expensive World Cup ever

Qatar has reportedly spent $220b in building new roads, public transport systems, hotels and other sporting facilities since being given the right to host the event.


3. Fans have been restricted from drinking beer in the stadium

In Qatar, regular fans won’t have access to alcohol at matches. Only spectators in the stadiums’ high-end luxury suites will have easy access to booze. Outside of the stadiums, fans can still drink at special World Cup gathering spaces, or at specially licensed restaurants, bars, and hotels around the country.


4. Despite the heat Fans will need to cover up

Dress codes in many public areas require that “both men and women cover shoulders, chests, stomachs, and knees, and that tight leggings be covered by a long shirt or dress,” the State Department said.


5.Sex ban and other controversial prohibitory orders at Qatar 2022

Qatar’s state law has placed a ban on sexual relationships for unmarried couples. The nation’s law dictates a seven-year imprisonment on defaulters. Foreigners who step foot in Qatar are also expected to obey the strict personal laws. 


6.This will be the shortest tournament since 1982

The 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar will be the shortest in the century! Furthermore, this will be the shortest tournament since 1982, when only 24 teams participated. In total, 64 games will be crammed up in 28 days, meaning everyone will have less time to rest.


7. Matches will take place only in 8 stadiums

The tournament will take place in only eight arenas, as all but one are very close to each other. This will only produce additional infrastructural headaches, potentially turning the event into a nightmare. The fans won’t have much choice but to be patient and go to the games very early to arrive on time.
