Qatar will be the first country to host the FIFA world cup in the Arab world and the first in a Muslim-majority country. And this will also be the first World Cup held in Asia since the 2002 tournament in South Korea and Japan.
32 teams will surely participate in 2022 world cup but there is a chance it may increase to 48 teams for the 2026 tournament; Regarding the bidding procedure for hosting the world cup that began in Jan 2009 and it took a month association from different nations to register their interest.
But still, FIFA is looking at a proposal to expand the 2022 football tournament from 32 to 48 teams, an increase that could pose the greatest risk yet to Qatar’s plan to host the first World Cup in the Arab world.
Qatar has already come under scrutiny over allegations of corruption and human rights abuses — but that may be nothing compared with pressures it faces in the run-up to 2022.
By the end of 2018, three of the eight stadiums earmarked for 2022 will be completed. The design for Lusail, the stadium set to host World Cup 2022 final, is expected to be unveiled by the end of the year.
Qatar’s colossal weekly budget of $500 million (428 million euros) on World Cup infrastructure has built new roads, hotels, neighborhoods even towns — its $36 billion metro system is on track to open in 2019.
