I believe (having been in contact with people over there) there was an issue the first couple of days, but went to 4 games and it was quality. Ticket pinged in the phone when you were about 2k from the stadium. No issues. 

No paper tickets anymore? My 94 and 2002 stubs are some of my most prized possession LOL

Also, now I think of it. The ticketing issue in the first few days was due to Bluetooth, as opposed to actual distribution, which we’ve all been victims of 😀

Quite likely not. Felt like the building site lads had been thrown a tracksuit and made metro employees to help people around. But not a sniff of any negativity. Likewise as you’ve said for the next one . BAU.

Is that slave labour being used to build the infrastructure for the 2026 world cup ?

Just interested to know how anybody going would justify that. 


Yeah I’m heading over for a week, going to four games (meeting Gary over there for an overpriced beer). 

Got tickets in the random ballot, otherwise I wouldn’t be going. 
I don’t think anyone of any intelligence can agree or justify it being in Qatar for the various reasons already stated, it’s just not enough to put me off going to a WC. Different ceilings 
LOL
At least you’re honest I suppose. Would be interested to know what is the threshold if it hasn’t been passed yet. 

You have to be honest man! You can bring morals/ethics to the nth degree. Always wanted to go to a WC, never had the opportunity until now, taking it.  

Rounding back on this, if you can separate the country from the tournament for a moment; 

Tournament was great, really well organised, transport, ticketing, visa etc.. were pretty seamless. Stadiums were great too, Al Bayt in particular. 

Qatar was pretty dull tbh, no giveaways there. Had two days that didn't revolve around going to games, one spent in a pub, and one I went to one of the mega cruise ships in the dock and spent the day there. Any other free day probably would have struggled to find something to do (despite solid research). 

Glad I went anyway, got to the WC and some decent games.

there’s a lot of things need urgent attention just now but the place is hardly falling apart.
Most of the fairly well off people bemoaning the amount of addicts falling about the place all over the city centres are the same gobdaws shoving powder in their noses on nights out too.

What’s tiresome is this constant ‘Ireland is a Kip’ nonsense.

Quite interesting to read so many journos now back from Qatar writing articles about what Qatar is really like - Sounds just as bad if not worse than as described before the world cup.

I mean I've seen a lot of sh*te spouted over the last month or two but this has to be one of the most warped statements I've come across.

You are beyond help.

Saw that
And then when the bus was passing under a bridge two men on the bridge tried to jump onto the open top bus
One made it the other hit the road
