The Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC) released a statement today on 8 April 2022, that available rooms for World Cup guests will reach 130,000 rooms, which shows that accommodation will be readily available to the fans. Available accommodation range from hotel rooms, to floating hotels, villas, apartments, and fan villages.
The statement said that Qatar expects to host a million fans during the competition.
Fans who hold tickets for tournament matches can now book their accommodation through the official platform for accommodation reservations. The cost of accommodation in some apartments does not exceed $80 per night, while booking some rooms in luxury floating hotels, which include restaurants and provide many recreational activities only costs about $180 a night.
Floating hotels will be one of the more special options available during the World Cup. The SC recently signed an agreement with MSC Cruises to rent two cruises, with a total capacity of 4,000 people. The statement also said that the SC signed an agreement with Accord, the biggest hospitality operator in Europe, to provide 10,000 employees who will operate more than a million nights of stay in 60,000 apartments and villas during the competition.
Qatar 2022 CEO Nasser Al Khater assured football fans looking to travel to Qatar that there will be plenty of suitable options that fit all needs. He stressed the commitment to provide affordable accommodation options that guarantee all fans who travel to Qatar to enjoy the Middle-East’s first World Cup can do so.
