These camps will have electricity through generators, running water and sewage disposal, but they will not be air-conditioned. A luxurious camp of 200 tents will also be open. The tents will be set up on Sealine beach in the south of the country, on the edge of the desert, as well as “in other areas to be announced”, according to Omar Al-Jaber, head of accommodation at the Committee. organizational supreme

While the number of accommodations and their prices in the small Gulf emirate worry supporters, the manager indicated that “more than 100,000 rooms” were available.

New options will be offered on the official platform open to match ticket holders in the coming weeks, including prefab “villages”, he said.

Apartments, villas and cabins in two cruise ships moored in the port of Doha are also among the accommodation options. Many of the country’s hotel rooms have been pre-booked by organizers for teams, referees, officials and the media, but Fifa will release those that will not be used, Omar Al-Jaber said.
