So looks like those dates are indeed correct.

At a press conference FIFA president Infantino confirmed them.

It has to be that late due to the fucking sun burning the scorched desert lands.

I bet itll be all muslims at the games, outside of smaller than usual traveling supporters.
Itll be like a pilgrimage.
Will south/cental americans flock to qatar like they did to ru55ia?.... My gut says no, but i was shocked how many were in ru55ia, so what do i know.

No beer, almost all dudes, and the womens folk that are there will be showing orf their eyeliner abilities.
The game will still be the game.

In some ways it can see why fifa would want another part of the world to see the game in an environment of their own, or at least more friendly to them, but.......
The fact of the matter is, qatar bribed its way to being host.

No way they won't have beer.

They should cancel it now if that happens.

Qatar has a population of 2.6 million

That's less than Wales.

I can't imagine the idea of holding a World Cup in Wales only.

And the Taffs love their drink.

The corrupt FIFA goons, in action.

Not to mention they will be screwing up every soccer league on earth, except MLS.

A few Yuro leagues should boycott it by playing on, turning it into the farce it already is.

Boooze is illegal in public. And will likely not be served in the stadiums.
You are going to have to drive orf into the desert to get it....
Per the fail....
World Cup hosts Qatar will only allow football fans to drink alcohol in isolated desert sites miles away from stadiums in a bid to appease locals, worrying sponsors and the FA.

Hassan Al Thawadi, who led the Muslim-majority country's bid to host the 2022 event, has previously said drinking will only be allowed in 'specific far-away places'.

He also said: 'I'm personally against the provision of alcohol in stadiums and public places.'

Yeah, but those "isolated desert sites" will be where the fans spend most of their time, so it won't make much difference.

It will be like Benidorm.

Well At least there will no complaints from fifa or feminists about cameramen picking out babes in the crowd. Looking on the bright side, I thought that a World Cup hosted in Russia would be shit bit it actually turned out very well.

I wonder how many people will be found trying to smuggle alcohol into the stadium.

I did that at Raiders vs New England. Smuggled 1/2 of JD, tucked into the front of my belt.
And I was very thankful, having to sit 4 hours in the rain.

Not so sure I would try that in the ME. Their could be public flogging after matches.

I read today that FIFA want to stamp out cameraman fcousins on attractive women in the stand. 2022 the perfect chance for them to roll out that initiative.

Making people drive miles to drink may not be the best idea. They will have to drive back.

The host broadcast network got a lot of complaints about that practice, so I'd say it was a mildly important issue.
