Visiting fans will have new options for accommodation at the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar, reports the tournament organizers – the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC). The committee has announced the start of construction of a pilot fan village near Qatar’s Sealine Beach resort, which will be able to house up to 2,000 fans in Arabian tents.
Set to offer accommodation of different types in 650 Arabian tents, the pilot project will be built on a site of 3,230,000ft² in the south of Qatar – closest to Al Wakrah Stadium, which is currently under construction. The pilot project will include 350 temporary tents and 300 permanent tents which will accommodate 2,000 people.
The SC is currently studying five different locations for these types of fan villages during the tournament, which will have different themes – such as heritage, the culture and history of Qatar and the Middle East, sand dunes, and the sea. There will also be numerous entertainment offerings as well as large screens situated at the heart of the area. The final proposed locations of these sites have yet to be decided.
