Fans Can't Believe How Bleak Qatar Stadium Looks Ahead Of World Cup

Pictures of one of the stadiums for the Qatar World Cup has led to criticism of how bleak the surrounding area looks, just months out from the tournament.

Qatar was not everyone's first choice to host the World Cup this year, apart from when it came to the people actually voting on it back in December 2010.

There are many issues surrounding the hosting of the tournament in the middle east country, from the problems with human rights, homosexual relationships being illegal and even moving the tournament to the winter and still needing air conditioning.

With just months left until it all begins, although it would be less if it was actually in the summer, work should be all be done on the eight stadiums.

However a picture from journalist Tariq Panja has caused a stir on social media, as it shows how lifeless the surroundings outside one stadium currently is.

As well as the not exactly tempting view of around the stadium, going to Qatar might not be the best idea for England fans hoping to see the Three Lions end 56 years of hurt.

A report claimed that it could cost up to £9000-per-night for fans wanting to stay a hotel for the tournament, and flights could cost around £1063.

Tickets to games do start as little as £52 for some Group Stage games, in category three tickets, category four are only available for Qatari residents, but go up to as much as £1224 for the final.

Fans will also have to be wary about taking rainbow flags to the stadium, in support of LGBTQ+ rights, with homosexual relationships between men illegal in the country.

Overall it's not feeling like a fully welcoming environment.
