‘Affordable’ 2022 World Cup

The head of the team organizing the 2022 World Cup pledged on Wednesday that they will run an “affordable” tournament in Qatar amid fears of a post-pandemic global recession.

“We have always said from day one this will be an affordable tournament; we want anyone who wants to be able to come to the World Cup to be able to come,” said Hassan Al Thawadi, the secretary general of the supreme committee charged with delivering the tournament.

“We demonstrated that during the Club World Cup when we engaged with fans from all the different clubs, that the whole travel experience was affordable in terms of flights, in terms of accommodation.”
