  3. By 2030, Qatar aims to be an advanced society capable of sustaining its development and providing a high standard of living for all of its people. Qatar’s National Vision defines the long-term outcomes for the country and provides a framework within which national strategies and implementation plans can be developed. The National Vision addresses 5 major challenges facing Qatar: 1)Modernization and preservation of traditions 2)Needs of this generation and the needs of future generations 3)Managed growth and uncontrolled expansion 4)Size and the quality of the expatriate labor force and the selected path of development 5)Economic growth, social development and environmental management The National Vision foresees development through four interconnected pillars: 1)Human Development: development of all its people to enable them to sustain a prosperous society 2)Social Development: development of a just and caring society based on high moral standards, and capable of playing a significant role in global partnerships for development 3)Economic Development: development of a competitive and diversified economy capable of meeting the needs of, and securing a high standard of living for, all its people both for the present and for the future 4)Environmental Development: management of the environment such that there is harmony between economic growth, social development and environmental protection. http://www.gsdp.gov.qa/portal/page/portal/GSDP_Vision_Root/GSDP_EN/What%20We%20Do/QNV_2030 http://www.gsdp.gov.qa/portal/page/portal/GSDP_Vision_Root/GSDP_EN/GSDP_News/GSDP%20News%20Files/QNV2030_English_v2.pdf
  4. I agree with you to some extent, there is always that doubt in the background but I think step by step for 12 long years all doubts should be gone for the 2022 event. For example we spoke about traffic, The same swiss management company that managed the traffic issues for South Africa 2010 has been consulted for the 2022 Bid Book. Moving on,,,, As we know the actual FIFA World Cup is not just football matches, what will the fans do ? what will they eat ? etc. There is an entire Entertainment city being constructed at Lusail city (nearby Lusail Stadium), not to mention an amazing number of malls being built around the city (14 !), And thats Doha CBD only !! so plenty of indoor cooled space avoiding the hot sun. in addition to several museums around the country (Yesterday "Mathaf" The Museum of Modern Arab Art was officially inaugurated, it will feature in its collections nude sculptures and paintings) Recently a French Restaurant opened at the glitzy Pearl Qatar island and in its menu a wide range of available wines & champagnes are available, more of these are expected in the near future. (Alcoholic drinks are already sold in hotel bars/lounges) New hospitals and modern medical care facilities are being built constantly, there are 2 hospitals opening next year both are near some world cup stadiums (Sidra Hospital near Education City Stadium - Al-Wakrah Hospital near Al-Wakrah Stadium) All of this might some times be seen as a waste of money and not needed amenities after the World Cup, the truth however is that the nation is being shaped up for Qatar National Vision 2030, and everything is part of the plan.
  5. There is no doubt that the current transport system would fail if miserably if we were to host the world cup in say a week. However we do have plans for the next 12 years. Other than the great Metro system that is under construction as we speak, Qatar is investing in a renewing and expanding its current and future road systems, we will be having highways running through Doha city (5 major transport corridors around the nation), some projects are under construction with more going to start soon. The roads are improving everyday, roundabouts are turning into major signals with underpasses, with other turning into multiple grade interchanges... + There will be water taxis available with entry into the market soon with places such as the pearl open & New Doha International Airport opening soon (2011), will provide exclusive connections with 3 stadiums which are AlShamal, AlKhor and Doha port. ____________________________ As you guys should know the plan is to build 9 new stadiums and renovate 3 existing. Meaning that Qatar already has 3 of the world cup stadiums ready. REGARDLESS OF THE WORLD CUP HOSTING RIGHTS 4 stadiums were going to be built anyways as they are part of several master-plans, and they are Education City, Sport City, AlWakrah and AlKhor. (Alkhor and Alwakrah part of their cities master-plans. Education city stadium part of the Education city by Qatar Foundation master plan, and Sport city part of the Doha city master-plan.) 1 stadium which is Doha port is fully modular so it will be removed, taken apart and given to poor developing nations (working alongside FIFA in terms of choosing the right places). the same goes to most of the stadiums 2nd tier or so. with the exception of Sport city as it will be 100% permanent 47K stadium.
  6. Stadiums in relation to metro connections map taken from Qatar 2022 website. Qatar Railways masterplan New Doha International Airport (50 Million Passengers per Annum) opening 18th December 2011 World Cup fans housed at sea for Qatar 2022 Qatar is planning to use cruise ships to accommodate visitors during the World Cup tournament in 2022, Arabian Business has learnt. Qatar is planning to have in place around 240 properties before the start of the World Cup in 2022, according to FIFA’s official report on the evaluation of the Qatari bid. The report stated that Qatar currently has 100 existing hotels, villages and compounds spread across the seven host cities. An additional 140 properties will be sourced or constructed to meet accommodation needs, “including a cruise ship project in Al Wakrah with 6,000 rooms,” the report added. “Cruise ships are good solutions... it makes sense,” said Jalil Mekouar, regional director and head of real estate advisory at Jones Lang LaSalle Hotels. “Qatar will face similar issues as other countries have been facing, in terms of what do you do with all the inventory once the event is over… This challenge will be amplified for Qatar as we are talking about a city state, pretty much, and we talking of a small place physically, which is not as large as South Africa,” he added. The report stated that two thirds of the new supply of inventory, which will amount to around an extra 55,000 rooms, will be covered by 17 construction projects, 13 of which will be completed by 2016. As part of its bid, Qatar said it plans to double the number of hotel rooms to nearly 90,000 in time for the tournament, which will result in an investment of around $17bn over the next five years. While the report stated Qatar currently attracts around one million visitors a year and aims to grow visitor numbers by 20 percent in the next five years, the country is already suffering from an oversupply in its hotel sector. “The World Cup announcement has come at a crucial time in the growth of the hotel sector in Doha, which many privately feared was heading for oversupply and a rate war, as is being experienced now in Dubai’s Al Barsha district, for example,” said Guy Wilkinson, general manager at Viability, a Dubai-based hospitality consultancy company. With the oversupply issue already in place, Mekouar said “talk to double [the inventory] is just going to emphasis the problem rather than solve it.” However, Wilkinson was confident that growth in the tourism sector in Qatar could sustain the growth in supply. “Qatar has already witnessed the importance of a major global sporting event to its hotel sector, when it hosted the 15th Asian Games in 2006. Not only were the hotels booked out during the two weeks of the games themselves, but they received significant and increasing demand for at least two or three years before that,” he added. Using cruise ships as a short-term answer is one that was also used in South Africa during the last World Cup, when ships anchored off Port Elizabeth, Durban and Cape Town helped supply up to 4,500 extra rooms as temporary accommodation. While cruise ships are one answer to the temporary demand for accommodation, Mekouar said the oversupply issue in general “is certainly something to be looked at and I am interested to see what the response of the Qataris is.” http://www.hoteliermiddleeast.com/10116-world-cup-fans-housed-at-sea-for-qatar-2022/

  8. The World Cup is coming to the Arab world !!!! Qatar 2022 EXPECT AMAZING !
  9. Another reason why they are not "serious" hosts... So who is getting FINA 2013 ??? I remember Doha lost to Shanghai for the 2011 edition...
  10. Time to "reorganise" all these images.... So far 3 completely new stadiums have been announced and they are Al-Wakrah, Al-Khor & Al-Shamal. Al-Wakrah Stadium & Complex Will include the main Stadium (45,120) , Aquatics Center, Multi-Use sport's hall, Shopping Mall, Spa & Offices.) The complex would be adjacent to an expressway and will have connection's to the national metro network. The Sport complex is part of the "Wakrah City Masterplan", which means regardless of the decision in 2nd of December, it will be built. The only thing that wouldn't be built if the 2022 World Cup doesn't go to Qatar is the Modular upper tiers that would be removed and chipped to developing countries in Asia/Africa after the World Cup.

  11. Brazil vs England International Friendly The high-profile international football friendly between Brazil and England last November boosted the profile of Qatar's bid to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Stars like Kaka, Robinho and Wayne Rooney, descended on Doha and displayed their skills before a sellout crowd at the Khalifa International Stadium. The Game helped the football pundits take a serious note of Qatar. It also made them realise that the Arabian Gulf nation is not simply aiming to put itself on the map, but is quite serious and wants to make a global impact by hosting events like the World Cup and Olympics. "We received a lot of positive feedback. I wont claim everything was perfect, but overall, it was a great show and the 50,000-odd fans, who thronged the venue, had a memorable experience. We are looking for the same inspirational effect in 2022 when we hope to welcome the world to our country and showcase our traditional hospitality again, and open an entirely new market to the FIFA family." Qatar 2022 Bid CEO Hassan Abdullah Al Thawadi. Brazil vs England Fan Fest http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83Zn2ds1jE8&feature=player_embedded Cooling stadiums has already been done as is already practiced in Qatar since 2004, but the 2022 Stadiums will be using solar power. Stand fringe portholes breathe cooling air into the Al Sadd stadium (inset) Take a careful look at the picture here. Look at the pitch surround, to the right of the goal at the front of the stand in the Al Sadd Stadium (14,000) in Doha, Qatar. Those small black portholes are not mere decoration. They serve a purpose – and a potentially revolutionary one at that. One of the innovations with which Qatar expects to amaze FIFA during the 2022 World Cup bidding process is a system which cools the air temperature for players and fans. "This reporter can say he has walked out onto pitch, “felt” the future - and it works." Al Sadd was an appropriate club to invest in the initial system. This is the so-called “Real Madrid of the Gulf,” the richest club in Qatar and most successful with more than 300 cups glistening, glinting and gleaming in the trophy room. More significant in the wider scheme of the game, however, is the air-cooling system. A power plant 100 yards from the stadium drives the 6,000 tonnes of refrigeration from chilled water through a pipeline network to the stadium and out through the 150 vents which fringe the pitch and are replicated beneath every seat around the ground. Power plant The temperature outside may be 35 or 40 degrees but within the stadium it can be held down at between 18 and 21 degrees – low enough to keep any gloved Nordic midfielder happy. This is believed to be the first such system in the world and was installed and started up four months ago at a cost of around $20m. Already research scientists are working on refinements to ensure that future versions work to a carbon-lite, eco-friendly power system. For the Qataris this is the most significant legacy component of their 2022 bid since they would promise to make the technology available further south in hotter climes where the need is greater – and not only, of course, for soccer in particular or sport in general. "This is the first stadium to have this technology in the world. But the cooling system is powered by gas. For the 2022 World Cup, we want to develop the cooling effects from solar energy. We have planned it and we are capable to bring a new World Cup to the world. Yes, it will be new in terms of technology, in terms of marketing, in terms of compactness with regard to proximity of all the stadium which can make it possible for somebody to watch two matches in a day if he so wishes. Infact, Sepp Blatter already attended the heir apparent's cup final at the Al-Sadd Stadium when he visited Qatar earlier.
