    fair play to russia it has the women there are fit
    but qatar?

    - all the stadia have to be built from scratch

    - it only has a population of 1 million and very few play footie so the stadia wont even be used after the world cup

    - alcohol, israelis and homosexuals are all banned in qatar

    will the women have to wear burkas?

    i feel oil had something to do with this decision, and according to wikileaks russia is a 'mafia' state.

    They also have a hell of a lot of money, meaning they can afford to build incredible stadiums from scratch without any financial issues. Have you seen the designs? look up their bid video on youtube, they're incredible.

    They can also afford to install state of the art technology such as fully air-conditioned stadiums to make everything more pleasant for the fans.

    It gives countries like Qatar who aren't usually in the World Cup a chance to compete and potentially increase the profile of the sport in that country.
    The same way it did for South Africa.

    And no, the woman won't have to wear burkas you idiot, that isn't a law. It's people of a certain religion that wear them
