QATAR , AL-DOHA 2022The Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup bid is the successful proposal from the government of Qatar to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Qatar, with a population of 1.69 million people, will be the first Arab nation to host the World Cup.Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani, son of the present Emir of Qatar, was the chairman of the bid committee.
Qatar promoted their bid as representing the Arab world and has drawn support from the entire Arab world. They are also positioning their bid as an opportunity to bridge the gap between the Arab and Western worlds.
Qatar gave a feel of what the World Cup would be like by holding a friendly match between Brazil and Argentina. Furthermore, people coming from different nations visited Qatar for this match, and thus, strengthening the image Qatar will depict of their interest in the World Cup 2022. Additionally, Qatar is due to host the 2011 Asian Cup and this should provide a glimpse of Qatar's investment towards the development of its sports infrastructure.
President of FIFA Sepp Blatter endorsed the idea of having a World Cup in the Middle East, saying in April 2010, "The Arabic world deserves a World Cup. They have 22 countries and have not had any opportunity to organise the tournament." Blatter also praised Qatar's progress, "When I was first in Qatar there were 400,000 people here and now there are 1.6 million. In terms of infrastructure, when you are able to organise the Asian Games (in 2006) with more than 30 events for men and women, then that is not in question." On 2 December 2010, it was announced that Qatar will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

I've been to Qatar in 2009, and I luved it. AL-Doha is a beautiful city and I think it would be awesome for the World Cup to be held there. I wanna go back in a few years to see the progress that has been made, when I went there wuz so much construction.
