From simple steel beds to luxury villas or cruise ship suites: the accommodation offer deployed by the Qatari organization of the 2022 World Cup seeks to convince fans expected in the emirate at the end of the year.
Accommodation in Qatar
Visitors will have to buy a ticket for the game if they want to get official accommodation, but private platforms and certain hotels also offer rooms. Also, fans must also register to obtain a special pass that gives them access to the stadiums and fan-zones, explains the Qatari organization of the event that will take place between November 21 and December 18.
More than 1.2 million fans from all over the world are expected to travel to the small country, with an area of slightly more than 10,000 square kilometers, where nearly three million inhabitants live.

There will be about two million tickets available to the public (3.1 million in total), but the organization had already registered about 17 million requests in February, despite criticism regarding the balance of Qatar in terms of the treatment given to migrant workers. The wide range of accommodation, aimed at all budgets, reassures fans. The less wealthy will be able to sleep in single steel beds in studios for $84 (336,000 pesos) a night. The wealthiest will have the opportunity to spend a night in a luxury villa or on a cruise for around 1,000 dollars (4 million pesos).
The government and the International Football Federation (Fifa) have reserved 130,000 hotel rooms and apartments for the competition. They will also have two cruise ships in the port of Doha and will be able to set up desert camps for fans.
Omar al-Jaber, executive director in charge of accommodation within the organization committee, specified in a press conference that the price varies “according to the place and the type of accommodation chosen”. He cautioned however that rates would be based on “supply and demand”, and those who book early will get the cheapest prices.
