The 2022 World Cup in Qatar is just a few months away, and yet, despite the fact that they’ve had years to set up for the event, recent reports from the ground seem to indicate there’s still tons of work to be done.
Courtesy of sports journalist Ian Herbert, photos from Qatar shows the “fan cabins” show the facilities in an utterly dire state, especially for people likely spending thousands upon thousands of dollars to be there.

The state of the Qatar World Cup shouldn’t really come as a surprise as the event has been shrouded in controversy ever since it was awarded to the Arab nation.
This, of course, isn’t even mentioning the horrifying reports that over 6,500 workers died while working on building the stadiums for the event. There have even been more trivial concerns like the sale of alcohol in stadiums during the games, as reports originally indicated beer would not be sold at the matches (Qatar has since reversed course).
With the 2022 World Cup now seeming like an undoubted disaster, FIFA deserves every ounce of controversy and criticism that follows. The 2022 World Cup is set to begin on Sunday, November 20, and will conclude on Sunday, December 18.
United States Men’s National Team fans should have Black Friday circled on their calendars as the USMNT will be taking on England in the group stage that day.
