Qatar's infrastructure ready for 2022 FIFA World Cup
HE Hassan Al Thawadi, Secretary-General of the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC), expressed confidence in the readiness of Qatar's infrastructure for FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. He said that work is underway to complete the rest of the projects relating to some roads that were delayed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and global economic fluctuations that many countries had to deal with.
A dialogue session that took place within the Qatar Economic Forum, Powered by Bloomberg, on Wednesday, heard Al Thawadi express his confidence that the other projects relating to the World Cup will be completed on schedule, and in accordance with the agenda prior to the start of the tournament.
He mentioned that efforts are underway to accommodate various housing requests during the tournament's activities at reasonable prices, especially since FIFA received 27 million requests for World Cup tickets, but only two million people have replied so far.
