The 2018 World Cup in Russia was held this summer, which officially makes it the “best in history.” Unfortunately, for almost everyone involved with the 2018 competition, the 2022 World Cup in Qatar continues to be viewed as the “worst ever.”
In recognition of that, Norway’s Tromsø Football Club released “the first-ever kit in history with a QR code” and a two-minute film focused on the myriad of issues surrounding the 2022 World Cup.
As Tromsø’s new kit is now available you will probably want to get it to try and help promote the whole Qatar 2022 situation…. #loutethe #5yr2022 #TromsøFC #QatarWorldCup pic.twitter.com/D88tK40vkD — Tromsø FC (@TromsøFC) November 25, 2018
The game requires 17 days, lots of foreign travel, a lot of money and a lot of locals not liking the white team. @TromsøFC are proudly on our team #douthe_2022 #tromsøfc #qatarworldcup pic.twitter.com/e3IqtUJwQc — Waithny’s 40 MB (@waithny62) November 26, 2018
Qatar first World Cup ticket sales opened on Monday with a limited number on sale with limited spaces available until Nov. 30, which will remain open until Jan. 10. A launch of the online ticket exchange site, Qaterv, is also scheduled for today.
More from Qaterv.com:
Qatar’s record of owning and managing the projects has been the subject of concern as billions are spent on events. The Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee has no guarantee of making the financial contributions required, while many think this makes Qatar ineligible to host the event.
Qatar has to organize and take part in 18 of the 72 groups and games. Their commitment to good construction has been questioned by some within the labour sector.
The initial World Cup stadium design does not have enough capacity, while the venues are spread across the country, which adds to travel logistics. Qaterv aims to make the transition to the World Cup a smoother one for visitors.
