Who made the decisions for the host country

The FIFA Council, which consists of 36 members and is led by President Gianni Infantino, selects the host country for each World Cup.

The decision is made based on several factors, including infrastructure, facilities and government support.

Qatar won the bid for the 2022 World Cup in 2010 after a vote by the FIFA council.

The controversy surrounding Qatar’s victory and allegations of bribery and corruption in the bidding process have been extensively reported and investigated.

However, FIFA has maintained that the bidding and selection process for the 2022 World Cup was fair.

Controversies of this Qatar World Cup

In addition to the controversy surrounding Qatar’s bid for the 2022 World Cup, concerns have also been raised about the country’s treatment of migrant workers.

Human rights groups have reported that workers, mostly from South Asian countries, are victims of exploitation and dangerous working conditions while building stadiums and infrastructure for the tournament.

FIFA is under pressure to take action and ensure fair treatment for workers, but the organization insists it is not responsible for labor and labor laws in Qatar.

There are also concerns about the scheduling of the 2022 World Cup as it will take place in Qatar during the hot summer months. FIFA, meanwhile, stated that the tournament will be moved to winter and that air-conditioned stadiums will be used.

These controversies have cast a shadow over preparations for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, but as the tournament draws closer, fans can hope for a successful and controversial event.

Finally

The 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar promises to be a highly competitive tournament, with strong teams from around the world competing for the coveted trophy.

With the addition of teams of 26 players and the option of air-conditioned stadiums, this World Cup will be unique in many ways.

However, it has also been surrounded by controversy, including allegations of bribery in the bidding process and concerns about the treatment of migrant workers. Only time will tell how these issues will ultimately affect the tournament.

Regardless, football fans everywhere are eagerly awaiting the excitement of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

If you’re one of them, start planning your trip and cheering on your team as they compete for the World Cup title.

Hopefully this article has provided some background on Qatar 2022 and the teams that will participate. As the tournament approaches, stay tuned for updates and further developments.

And most importantly, may the best team win.
