How Qatar got the chance to host the FIFA World Cup 2022?
Accusations of corruption have been leveled over how Qatar won the right to host the event. An internal investigation and a FIFA report exonerated Qatar of any wrongdoing, but the chief investigator Michael J. investigated corruption and money laundering in connection with the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bids.
On 6 August 2018, former FIFA President Sepp Blatter claimed that Qatar used “operations Black,” noting that the registry committee had been tricked into winning the hosting rights. In addition, Qatar has faced heavy criticism over the treatment of foreign workers involved in preparations for the World Cup, with Amnesty International referring to “forced labour” and stating that hundreds or thousands of migrant workers have died as a result of human rights abuses, and inhumane and indifferent working conditions.
Bidding procedures to host the 2018 and 2022 World Cups began in January 2009, and national associations had until February 2, 2009 to register their interest. Initially, eleven bids were made for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, but Mexico later withdrew from the proceedings, and FIFA rejected Indonesia’s bid in February 2010 after the Indonesian Football Association failed to provide a letter of guarantee from the Indonesian government to support the bid.
Indonesian officials did not rule out a bid to host the 2026 World Cup, until Qatar won the 2022 tournament. During the bidding process, all non-EU countries gradually withdrew their bids for 2018, ensuring that the EU country would host the 2018 tournament, making the European Union Not eligible to host the 2022 bid.
In the end, there were five bids to host the 2022 World Cup: Australia, Japan, Qatar, South Korea and the United States. The 22-member FIFA Executive Committee met in Zurich on 2 December 2010 to vote to select the hosts for the two tournaments, and two members of the FIFA Executive Committee were suspended prior to the vote on allegations of corruption in connection with their votes.
The decision to host the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, which was classified as having “high operational risks”, sparked criticism from media commentators. It has been criticized by many as part of the FIFA corruption scandals.
The voting patterns were as follows
There have been allegations of bribery and corruption in the selection process involving FIFA’s executive committee members. These allegations are being investigated by FIFA .
HOW QATAR IS (ABOUT QATAR)
Qatar is the smallest country by area to have won the FIFA World Cup – followed by Switzerland, the host country for the 1954 FIFA World Cup, which is three times larger than Qatar and only needs to host 16 teams instead of the current 32.
Qatar also became only the second country (with the exception of Uruguay, as the host country for the first-ever World Cup) to win the FIFA World Cup despite not having qualified for a previous edition. Japan previously held the rights to co-host the 2002 World Cup alongside South Korea without ever qualifying for the finals, although they later qualified for the 1998 World Cup.
Some investigations found that Qatar sought an advantage in securing the hosting by hiring a former CIA officer turned private contractor, Kevin Chalker, to spy on rival bidding teams and key football officials who picked the 2010 winner.
FIFA World Cup 2022 Qualifications
The six FIFA confederations organize their own qualifying competitions. All FIFA Member Associations, of which there are currently 211, were eligible to qualify. Qatar, as the host nation, automatically qualified for the tournament. However, the AFC obligated Qatar to participate in the Asian qualifying stage, with the first two rounds also counting as qualification for the 2023 AFC Asian Cup. Since the Qataris reached the final stage with their group victory, Lebanon advanced instead, finishing second and fifth best.
France, the World Cup champions, also passed the qualifying stages as usual. Saint Lucia initially entered the playoffs but withdrew from it before their first match. North Korea withdrew from the qualifying round due to safety concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic. American Samoa and Samoa withdrew before the Oceania lottery. Tonga withdrew after the 2022 Hong Tonga Hung Hapai eruption and tsunami. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in their teams, the Cook Islands and Vanuatu have also pulled out.
The allocation of seats to each association was discussed by the FIFA Executive Committee on 30 May 2015 in Zurich after the FIFA Congress. The Committee decided to continue the 2006 allocations that remained unchanged for 2010, 2014 and 2018 for the 2022 tournament:
- CAF (Africa): 5
- AFC (Asia): 4.5 (not including host nation)
- UEFA (Europe): 13
- CONCACAF (North and Central America and Caribbean): 3.5
- OFC (Oceania): 0.5
- CONMEBOL (South America): 4.5
Team Qualified for FIFA World Cup 2022
FIFA World Cup 2022 Final Draw
The final drawing was held at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center in Doha, Qatar, on April 1, 2022, at 19:00 KSA, prior to the completion of qualification. The winners of the Inter-Confederation Qualifiers and the winner of Track A of the UEFA Qualifiers were not known at the time of the lottery.
For the draw, 32 teams were divided into four pots based on the FIFA World Rankings released on March 31, 2022. The first pot contained the hosts of Qatar (who were automatically assigned to A1 position) and the best seven teams. Pot Two contained the next best eight teams, with the next best eight teams into Pot 3. Pot Four contained the five lowest ranked teams, along with the placeholders for the winners among the qualifying associations and UEFA A-Track from the winner.
Teams from the same association cannot be included in the same group except for UEFA teams, where there was at least one team and no more than two teams per group. This principle also applies to placeholder teams, with restrictions imposed on the basis of the union of potential winners in each playoff.
The draw began with pot 1 and ended with pot 4, with each team selected and then distributed alphabetically to the first available pool. The team’s position within the group will then be plotted (for the purpose of the match schedule), with Pot 1 teams automatically placed in position 1 of each group. The intake receptacles are shown below.
