Where should fans book their hotels?

DISCLAIMER: As of now, the Qatar Accommodation Agency (QAA) is prioritising only match tickets holders. To book accommodations with the QAA you will need a valid Ticket Application Number to confirm your booking.

While it would be considered ideal for fans to stay near their favorite team’s home ground allowing them to attend fan fests and go to matches together, Qatar is a small country where all the stadiums are within a stone’s throw away from one another.

For example, the northernmost stadium, Al Bayt stadium in Al Khor, is only 55 kilometres away from the southernmost Al Wakrah stadium with a travel time of just under an hour.

This means that unlike in previous world cups, football fans will not be required to fly or travel distances to attend matches should their team progresses to the next round. With Qatar’s excellent public transport system, fans will be able to get to any stadium easily and swiftly.

Bottom line, no matter which hotel or accommodation fans ended up staying in, it’s almost assured that their favorite team’s home base will be somewhere close by.
