Qatar World Cup 2022
The 2022 World Cup Countdown Begins
Qatar is just 10 years away from hosting the world's leading sporting event, the 2022 World Cup. However, the question posed by experts at this juncture is, whether Qatar is going too slow in its World Cup preparations, given the huge infrastructure projects that it has on its agenda. Experts are pointing out to the fact that a well-developed country such as Germany, required more than 10 years to ready the stage for the 2006 World Cup.
In comparison to the earlier host countries, the infrastructure gap in Qatar is huge and is far from ideal. Hence an early preparation is vital for Qatar, particularly for expansion of its public transportation network. One of the sticking point here is the delay in launch of rail network, which is a major component for this mega event to be successful.
