Every four years, the World Football Cup is a competition that brings together eligible nations from every continent to compete and thrill football fans throughout the world. This year’s edition of the famous competition will be held in Qatar from November 21 until December 18, 2022. Attending this event requires lodging, but whether you’ve looked for a hotel or an Airbnb, neither of them has places available. What then should you do if you require lodging during the World Cup? Here is a quick guide to accommodations in Qatar for the World Cup.

First off, 1.2 million tourists are anticipated for the 28-day football competition, thus event attendance will not be restricted to football fanatics. There are only about 30,000 hotel rooms in Qatar, according to Qatar Tourism, and according to Omar Al-Jaber, head of lodging at the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, according to DMarge, 80% of these rooms are already reserved for FIFA players, referees, media, and other official guests.

tents a la Bedouin

For football fans who wish to travel there for the World Cup, Qatar may be constructing 1,000 tents in “Bedouin-style.” Al-Jaber stated that they would “provide fans the option to live in a desert” in addition to “a authentic flavor of Qatari camping.” Al-Jaber additionally disclosed that 200 of the 1000 tents will be exceedingly lavish and exquisite, but DMarge asserts that these tents would have a “expensive” nightly fee.

residing in nearby nations

There are numerous options in cities like Muscat (Oman), Dubai (UAE), Abu Dhabi (UAE), and Dammam (Saudi Arabia). For the games, you can travel into Qatar and conveniently stay in a neighboring nation. Hotels in any of these mentioned cities offer reasonably simple cross-border travel. Staying in hotels in nearby nations has a lot of benefits too with cost being more reasonable.

village fans

There are currently three places for the fan communities outside of Qatar. This is the most economical choice for visitors to Qatar for the World Cup, costing $208 per night according to Doha News. This type of accommodation might either have two twin beds or one full bed. Remember that this is a far cry from the luxury that Qatar has developed in Doha or its surrounding nations. In essence, it serves as a location to rest and prepare for the day. With the exception of location, every fan village is essentially the same. There is free WiFi, two bottles of water each day, a twice-weekly housekeeping service, and relatively easy access to Doha via metro according to Doha News.

Cruise vessels

This is an intriguing choice because two MSC Cruises cruise ships will be docked at Doha’s Grand Terminal, which is located just outside the city’s core. It makes events and transportation to the stadiums accessible. Currently, a night on any of the two cruise ships costs $180 per night on the MSC Poesia and $350 per night on the MSC World Europa. The World Europa is still being built as of May 2022, making the Qatar World Cup supporters residing there some of the ship’s first residents according to Goal. It would just be similar to taking a cruise holiday to stay on a cruise ship during the World Cup in Qatar. Aboard, there are dining and beverage options as well as entertainment alternatives. As is typical on cruise ships, the accommodations are very compact.

Apartments& Villas

Additionally, there are apartments and villas that, in a way, ensure that you’ll feel at home while visiting Qatar. They are private areas, complete with a kitchen, bathroom, and regular rooms to enjoy privacy after spending all day enjoying football. Alternatively, you can help fellow guests and visit hayya.qatar2022.qa and select “Host Family and Friends.” Before you can validate your QID via text there, you must input your QID number and birthdate according to Time Out. After your ID has been verified, you must give your property address, which must include the zone, street, building, and unit number, as well as clarify whether you are the owner or renter of the property.

Via Time Out

If you’re planning to stay in Qatar or even a neighboring country, you will surely enjoy some football while exploring the splendor of Qatar. This is due to Qatar’s unique ability to combine tradition and modernity, which is uncommon elsewhere in the world. Qatar honors its history while also providing visitors with a diverse society.
