Doha Prepares 2018 World Cup Bid
Doha is to bid to host the football World Cup in 2018, and could invite neighbouring countries to join in as co-hosts.
Qatar is keen to build its presence on the world sporting stage following the successful hosting of the Asian Games in December. It has already announced that it bid for the 2016 Olympic Games, and has its sights set on the larger undertaking of the World Cup.
"We have a plan. Qatar is trying for the 2018 World Cup," Qatar National Olympic Committee secretary general Shaikh Saoud bin Abulrahman al-Thani said at the MEED Qatar Non-Energy Conference on 23 January.
"If Qatar wins the bid, we'll have more work than the Olympics," he added. "The World Cup is not held in one city, which means we need hotels and stadiums in Al-Khor, Mesaieed, Al-Wakrah and Dukhan."
One alternative could be to jointly host the event with other Gulf countries, although football's governing body FIFA is thought to dislike this option. "The UAE, Qatar and Bahrain could be possible," said Shaikh Saoud. "But after the experience of South Korea and Japan, they [FIFA] are not into that experience again."
In 2004, FIFA rejected a proposal from Libya and Tunisia to co-host the 2010 World Cup. "FIFA's policy is that if there is a viable bid from a single country, that will be given preference," says FIFA head of media Andreas Herren.
One potential challenger for the 2018 World Cup is China.
The bidding process for the 2018 World Cup is scheduled to begin in late 2010. Officials at the Qatar Football Association were unable to confirm that it had begun the process of preparing a formal bid.

How would you rate your chances against England, China, the USA, Australia and possibly Spain?

I think you've got a better chance of getting the Olympics personally as it only requires a single city and maybe a few peripheral venues. A World Cup may be tricky for a small country like Qatar.
