Long lines and lack of water mar the Qatar World Cup stadium trial

Can’t you see the metro location is full? Stop! a weary supervisor shouted as green-vested marshals linked limbs to contain thousands of fans running from the stadium that will host soccer’s Football World Cup final in Qatar. It was after a night on Friday and, for hours, nearly 78,000 people had been kept out of the stadium after a near-capacity game examined the small Gulf state’s enthusiasm for the tournament World Cup, which kicks off on Nov. 20.

Let us through! We have children, screamed one man carrying a sweaty toddler. We need water. Is there water? a woman screamed from behind the line. Stadium stands were out of the water by halftime and there was none out there, where the late summer heat was 34 Celsius but felt far hotter as of the moisture. Friday’s game, called the Lusail Super Cup, was the first time the new Lusail stadium has held such a troop. At 80,000 seats, it is the largest of Qatar’s eight Football World Cup stadiums and a gold-clad showpiece intended to host the final game on Dec. 18.

Qatar is the first Middle Eastern country and the lowest nation ever to host the Football World Cup. Though it has spent billions of dollars on the substructure, it has never prearranged an event on such a scale which remarkably for a Football World Cup will also be held in or about a single city. There will be four games around Doha every day for the first 12 days of the tournament World Cup. World soccer governing body FIFA says 2.45 million tickets out of a possible 3 million are previously sold and an unprecedented 1.2 million people, equal to nearly half Qatar’s population, are projected to visit.

Organizers told exactly 77,575 people passed through the entrances on Friday, the largest crowd ever in Qatar. Families took young children to the stadium, coming ahead of a concert by Egyptian singer Amr Diab. Hundreds of Saudi followers wore the blue jersey of Al Hilal, the Saudi squad which beat Egypt’s Zamalek on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

With immigrants often moved in to fill empty arenas, hundreds of South Asian and African workers were also there altogether in a section of the stadium, wearing identical white, blue, or red t-shirts. They left end masse at halftime to board buses away. Asked about the odontiasis problems, a spokesperson for planners, the Supreme Committee (SC) for Delivery and Legacy, told Reuters the game was intended to recognize operational issues and learn lessons for a seamless Football World Cup.

“Every team interested in the event’s organization achieved invaluable knowledge they will carry into this year’s tournament,” the spokesperson added in a statement.

This is such a mess

In the post-game turmoil, one fan put away the stadium swear, shoved a marshal in the neck, and broke through with the cordon, followed by numerous others, trying to reach the metro. The station entrance hall is 400 meters from the stadium, although followers waited in a 2.5-kilometre line snaking back and forth around an empty lot. Officials stated that was to avoid a stampede.

This is such a mess, confirmed Eslam, an Egyptian fan who has lived in Doha since 2004 and had his arm over a bleary-eyed and fatigued friend in the line. I do not want to go to the Football World Cup any longer. Not if it is like this. Some providers, caterers, security personnel, and medical staff had trouble retrieving the stadium, a provider told Reuters.

“Even some ambulances were running around trying to figure out where they were supposed to be placed. We have given the wrong ways over and over and the parking permits we had been for lots that didn’t happen,” told the supplier, who did not want their name issued due to the warmth.

The stadium refrigeration system, which Qatar has defined as state-of-the-art, tried to keep the stands cool. Humidity levels and heat will be lower when the tournament Football World Cup starts, then there will be other challenges. Unlike on Friday, ticket holders will be able to drink beer beside stadiums before and after every game.

Friday’s match was also a litmus test for stadium security. Close to the pitch, guards in dark clothes and baseball caps were placed every few meters in the aisles, monitoring followers, who were enthusiastic however well-behaved. Outside, guards patrolled the perimeter in groups of five men or five women, each with a hook-shaped baton hanging from their belt. Some taken fistfuls of zip-tie handcuffs. Measures go far beyond the stadiums.

To prevent traffic through its only land border with Saudi Arabia from jamming roads, organizers are turning a section of wilderness where supporters will park their cars and board buses for the 100 km journey up the desert highway to Doha. Sanctions will limit cars on the roads by buying schools to close for the tournament World Cup, banning vehicles from swathes of the city, and encouraging businesses to have staff work from home.

An old airport is back in control to handle extra flights and new passport control rises are being proposed to triple the number of passengers Qatar can handle. Qatar Airways is shifting 70% of its flight plan to create more landing slots throughout the tournament Football World Cup.
