Qatar presented its stadium proposals to FIFA as part of its efforts to land the 2022 World Cup, for which the United States is also in the running. Sports Illustrated has this cool slideshow of models and renderings. Just to tease you, the first of them is below. Thanks to our friend (and longtime potential Kicks contributor) Kevin Zelaya for sending this our way.
What do you think of Qatar’s chances of landing the World Cup? Before you say, “TOO HOT,” bear in mind that all of the stadiums are designed to be cooled and carbon neutral. I still think the US is the front-runner to host 2022, but I must admit, I’d start saving up now just for a chance to geek out at the stadiums if Qatar can land it.
