2022 FIFA World Cup potential business opportunities (HVO QAT-6)

Qatar intends to spend in excess of US$200bn on new projects to prepare for the 2022 FIFA World Cup; covering stadia (US$8bn), surrounding precincts, training grounds, transport infrastructure and non-competition venues.

Qatar intends to spend tens of billions of dollars on a high number of new projects to prepare for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The total budget is expected to exceed US$200bn covering the stadia, the surrounding precincts, the training grounds, the transport infrastructure and the non-competition venues. The tournament will take place in and around Doha, all within a 25km radius, and more than US$5bn will be spent on building seven new stadiums and refurbishing the existing stadium in the Aspire Zone.

The main stakeholder for the delivery of the 2022 FIFA World Cup is the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SCDL) which has been tasked to ensure that all preparations for the World Cup align with Qatar’s other development imperatives, as described in the Qatar National Vision 2030 and the National Development Strategy 2011-2016. Other stakeholders such as Ashgal (Public Works Authority), the Ministry of Sport, Qatar Olympic Committee and Aspire Logistics will work with the SCDL to deliver the stadiums and other related infrastructure.

At the bidding stage, the Bidding Team proposed 89 training grounds of which 64 five-star training camps would be based on two models: the pairing of 32 hotels with 32 training sites; and the other of two villages containing 16 clusters each of luxury houses, facilities and a training pitch. Only 10 of the 64 currently exist, and all cluster developments are still on the drawing board. There will be a fundamental re-appraisal of this approach when it is confirmed when the tournament will be held (summer or winter).

To accommodate the influx of fans, Qatar will increase its hotel room capacity - 21 new hotels are already in construction. There are also plans in place to develop the Old Doha Port as a cruise ship Terminal to take cruise liners which could house up to 15,000 visitors. Prefabricated or modular buildings are also under consideration.

Qatar will implement other major projects around rail, port and road infrastructure.
