Getting to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar is no small feat. In fact, the host nation spent a whopping $220 billion on the tournament, with most of it going towards stadiums, hotels, and a world class training centre. With such a gargantuan budget in hand, the Qatari footballers went the extra mile, hiring the best youth coaches from across the globe, along with building the country’s first international airport, and putting the most expensive hotel in the country up for sale.
The country is also home to the most successful sports betting industry in the world, with the national leagues and clubs putting in well over a billion dollars every year. The country also has the highest GDP per capita in the world. It’s also the first country to qualify for the World Cup in a quarter century, thanks in large part to the nation’s vast trove of talented soccer players. In fact, the country is the most prolific in the game, and has been credited with producing some of the most impressive players in the world.
One of the most impressive things to come out of the country is the 2022 FIFA World Cup, and the fact that it’s taking place in the nation’s capital makes it all the more exciting. The country has spent more than $220 billion on the tournament, the most of any country to qualify for the tournament in a quarter century. With the country’s population of roughly 4.5 million, it’s easy to imagine that Qatar will have one of the world’s most exciting teams in a few years.
The most important thing to take away from all of this is that Qatar isn’t just another Persian Gulf nation. The country’s unique history and culture has helped it to attract some of the world’s best soccer players. The country has also been a trailblazer in the tech sector, and has some of the world’s best telecom infrastructure.
