A few words about the world Cup in Qatar. It is planned that it will be the most expensive in history. All will spend 220 billion dollars! This is eighteen times more than was spent to Russia.
The entire sports infrastructure is placed approximately $ 10 billion. The rest is new roads, a complete network of railway transport, which is created from scratch, hospitals, airport and even a new city to host the world Cup final.
40-thousand “al Wakrah”, which is built on the project of Zaha Hadid, who died in March of 2016
The most expensive project the world Cup in 2022 – the city of Lusail, which will host the opening match of the tournament and the final. The construction of the city, which is located in the desert about 20 kilometers from Doha, began in 2006 with the preparation of empty land. When Qatar in 2010 won the world Cup, there was not a single building. In 2022 there will be the biggest stadium of the tournament by 80 thousand spectators.
Another fun fact – the championship in Qatar will be the most compact. The shortest distance between the arenas of 5.6 kilometers (between “Caliph international” and Qatar Foundation). The great circle distance between the two stadiums world Cup 2022 – 56 kilometers (between “al-Chorus” in the North of Qatar “al-Vakrou” in the South). Compare with Russia: the longest distance between Yekaterinburg and Kaliningrad (on the highway), more than 3 thousand kilometers.
Specially for the world Cup in Qatar to build a subway for $ 18 billion. All will be 74 TV stations in four branches.
