FIFA President lauds Qatar’s preparations for 2022 World Cup

By QLNews

Football world body president, Gianni Infantino, has once again expressed his absolute confidence in Qatar’s abilities to deliver an exceptional World Cup in 2022.

Speaking at an open session, part of the International Federation of Sports Journalism Awards ceremony in Budapest, Hungary, the FIFA President said Qatar would be ready two years ahead of time for the mega event.

This is a record time, which none of the previous host nations have been able to accomplish, Infantino said.

“I am confident that it will be an amazing event, as it will constitute a change in the rules of the game and the people who will visit Qatar and will notice well that we are not biased in granting them the right to host, and everyone’s perception of the region and the Arab countries will change,” he commented when asked about Qatar’s preparations for the highly-anticipated football tournament.

Referring to the stadiums, facilities, and infrastructure, the FIFA President noted that everything is progressing as best as possible.

He said the tournament is expected to be very impressive and will be a game-changer for the region.

Infantino also spoke about some important issues and challenges in global football, and some of FIFA’s plans to boost the game around the world at the session.

Like last year, this year’s awards ceremony was also held in conjunction with Qatar Sports Media Committee.

Earlier, in December, the FIFA chief had also said Qatar’s level of preparedness for the FIFA World Cup 2022 is “unparalleled” in the history of the tournament.
