The Qatar World Cup 2022 will begin on November 21 and conclude on December 18. The competition will be played in eight stadiums.
When releasing the hotels and training facilities for the 32 teams, football’s global governing body noted that three-quarters of the teams at the World Cup in Qatar this year will be based within a 10 km (six miles) radius of one another.
“Players will have more time to train and rest during the competition while being able to experience the excitement that will take over the country at much closer quarters, as fellow players and passionate fans from all 32 nations will be gathering in a single area,” said Colin Smith, FIFA’s Chief Operating Officer.

According to FIFA, lodging options include anything from four- and five-star hotels to villas, resorts, and other types of lodging.
For the competition, more than a million fans are anticipated to watch the tournament in Qatar.
“As with all of our World Cup projects, legacy planning has been a key factor and many of the training sites renovated and built will benefit local clubs and communities long after the tournament has finished. The new hotels will also support Qatar’s growing tourism industry post-2022,” said Nasser al-Khater, Qatar 2022 CEO.
