  1. Away from the hateful post of "eusebius65", As a Qatari, I would obviously pick Doha, not just for the fact that I live here, but also due to the fact that 70% of the needed venues were already ready during the 2016 bid + the long list of sport events held in Qatar, not to mention winning the 2022 FIFA World Cup hosting rights, Qatar is also bidding for the 2015 IHF World Handball Championship. On the other hand Dubai backed out of FINA !!! Not a very good move. Heat didn't get in the way of Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup bid, so this time Doha 2020 shouldn't worry so much. Some basic solutions.

  2. When I originally started this thread I put "money" on Dubai to be the first middle east games. My opinion has drastically changed since then. Way back when I wrote this thread topic, doha had only hosted The Asian Games...now Qatar has won the 2022 World Cup. This changes everything. You see Qatar and the UAE have similarly tiny populations and even less professional level athletes, with 3 Summer medals total between the two nations. Dubai may be precieved to be the financial and cultural center, but the UAE didnt raise its hand enough and now Qatar is holding the bulk of Middle East Sport
