The bid unveiled five eco-friendly, carbon-neutral stadia to media fanfare in Dubai in April. The five stadia are: Al-Khor, Al-Wakrah, Al-Shamal, Al-Rayyan and Al-Gharafa .

Each of the five stadiums will harness the power of the suns rays to provide a cool environment for players and fans by converting solar energy into electricity that will then be used to cool both fans and players at the stadiums. When games are not taking place, the solar installations at the stadia will export energy onto the power grid. During matches, the stadia will draw energy from the grid. This is the basis for the stadiums’ carbon-neutrality.

The upper tier of each of the five stadiums will be removed after the tournament. They will then be donated to developing countries that lack sports infrastructure. During the FIFA World Cup™, if we win the right to host, the capacity of each stadium will be able to accommodate between 40,000 and 50,000 fans. When the tournament ends, the lower tiers of the stadia will remain in Qatar, able to accommodate between 20,000 and 25,000 fans, suitable for local football, while the upper tiers will be sent to developing nations.

We see sending the stadiums to developing nations as an integral part of our bid, as doing so will allow for the further development of football on the global stage. Along with the stadiums, we plan to make the cooling technologies we’ve developed available to other countries in hot climates, so that they too can host major sporting events.


Al-Gharafa Stadium

The existing 21,175 capacity Al-Gharafa stadium will be expanded to 44,740 seats using modular elements forming an upper tier. The facade will be made up of ribbons representing the nations that qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup and will symbolize football and the mutual friendship, tolerance and respect that the tournament represents. The stadium will be downscaled to its existing capacity after the tournament ends.

Al-Khor Stadium

Al-Khor is a brand new 45,330 capacity stadium with a stunning seashell motif and a flexible roof. The permanent lower tier seats 25,500 and the modular upper tier seats 19,830. The stadium offers spectators a stunning view of the Arabian Gulf from their seats and will be located in a sports and recreation zone.

Al-Rayyan Stadium

The existing Al-Rayyan Stadium with a seating capacity of 21,282 will be expanded to 44,740 seats using modular elements to form an upper tier. The stadium is designed with a special "media facade" membrane that acts as a screen for projecting news, updates and current matches. The stadium will be downsized to its current capacity after the tournament.

Al-Shamal Stadium

The brand new Al-Shamal stadium has a capacity of 45,120 with a permanent lower tier of 25,500 seats and a modular upper tier of 19,620 seats. The stadiums shape is derived from the "dhow" fishing boat of the Arabian Gulf. Spectators are expected to arrive from the Doha Expressway, water taxis, the Bahrain-Qatar Friendship Bridge and the new metrorail.

Al-Wakrah Stadium

The brand new 45,120 capacity Al-Wakrah stadium will be located in a sports complex that will consist of an aquatic centre, spa, sports facilities and a mall. The centre will be a bustling centre 365 days a year and is adjacent to the future routing of the Doha Expressway.

FIFA will never give the WC to nations unable to qualify for second rounds. Qatar team will have to prove itself first.

Countries bidding for 2018 and 2022:
Belgium & Netherlands (co-hosts)
England
USA
Russia
Portugal & Spain (co-hosts

Countries bidding for 2022 only:
Qatar
Australia
Japan
South Korea

FIFA will announce its selection on Dec 2, 2010 (for both 2018 and 2022)

Qatar's bid is very ambitious, but unfortunately will have to deal with several issues such as:
-Alcohol consumption, night life, partying, etc
-Weather; they might control temperatures within stadiums but tourists (especially those coming from colder countries) will be at risk outdoors
-Middle Eastern politics; what if Israel qualifies, will Qatar let them wave their flag and sing their national anthem...
-Stadium capacity: the proposed stadium have smal capacities (relatively speaking)

My personal preference: 2018 USA, 2022 Australia

Chances are 2018 is European especially that the two WC before were on the different continent and that both Spain and Netherlands are finalists and hosting. I haven't seen Russia's bid but it is unlikely given the strong West European competition and Olympics gave them sotchi for now, it is like a test for big events we haven't seen Moscow organize anything since the goodwill games.
2024 is definitely Asian but they are all Asians, South Korea got it and Qatar will not get it, so it is between Australia and Japan which both are good candidates. Australia should have the upper hand since their Olympics was a huge success.

Japan???? no way, 2002 was in Korea and Japan, they will give chance for another country.
Australia's problem is the location, this country is too far from all countries specially europe, and soccer is not very popular there. I think Qatar have a good chance, and they have to play the "first arabic country" card.

لفيفا يحسم اليوم ملفي المونديال

تتجه أنظار العالم اليوم إلى مدينة زيورخ السويسرية حيث يحسم الاتحاد الدولي لكرة القدم (فيفا) هوية الدولتين المضيفتين لمونديالي 2018 و2022، بعدما قدمت أمس قطر والدول المنافسة الأخرى العرض الخاص والنهائي لملفات بلادها إلى أعضاء اللجنة التنفيذية في الاتحاد.

وسيتم الاقتراع بتصويت سري أولا على الملفات الأربعة المتنافسة في نسخة العام 2018، وهي إنجلترا، وروسيا، وإسبانيا والبرتغال بملف مشترك، وبلجيكا وهولندا بملف مشترك، ثم الملفات الخمسة المتنافسة في نسخة العام 2022، وهي قطر، والولايات المتحدة، وأستراليا، واليابان، وكوريا الجنوبية.

وفي حال لم يتمكن أي ملف من حسم الأمور من خلال حصوله على أغلبية الأصوات في الدور الأول (12 صوتا) تستبعد الدولة التي حصلت على أقل عدد من الأصوات، ثم يحتكم إلى الدور الثاني، ويتكرر هذا الإجراء حتى يتمكن أحد الملفات من حسم الأمور في مصلحته.

أما إذا تعادلت الأصوات بين ملفين في الدور الحاسم، فسيلعب صوت رئيس الاتحاد الدولي السويسري جوزيف بلاتر دور الترجيح، ثم يوضع اسم الملفين الفائزين في مغلفين قبل الإعلان عن اسم الدولتين المضيفتين لكأسي العالم عامي 2018 و2022.

I believe England has a 90 % chance of winning the 2018 bid.
50 % for the US and 50 % for Qatar for 2022.

The US has sent Clinton and Obama had a video conference, they promised the biggest income for FIFA ever and they reminded that they had the biggest attendance ever in 1994 (not sure if true) and that they will have more, the US is throwing everything in, I guess everybody is, even South Korea is promising unification with North Korea, lol
