The 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™ in numbers
With this summer's major football tournaments in Europe and the Americas just days away from kick-off, we look ahead at the organisational elements and numbers behind delivering the first ever FIFA World Cup™ in the Middle East in 2022:
• Enough broadcast cabling to reach from Doha to Sochi, one of the host cities for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, as well as 2.3 million metres of fibre optic and ethernet cable – enough to get from Doha to Mumbai.
• 70,000 outdoor lights – more than three times as many lights as the Eiffel Tower.
• 84,000 tonnes of structural steel – more than twice the amount used for Burj Khalifa.
• 9,200 trees will be planted in the areas surrounding the proposed 2022 FIFA World Cup™ host venues – more than double the amount in London's Hyde Park.
• 10,880 doors, 26 times the number of doors in the White House and 7 times as many as Buckingham Palace.
To deliver the 2022 FIFA World Cup™, the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy will rely upon the skills and experience of people and businesses from across Qatar and the Middle East.
