Qatar World Cup 2022: Qatar Endures Nightmare Stadium Issues in World Cup Trial Run With No Water for Fans

Qatar World Cup 2022: Fears were raised prior to the World Cup’s first game. This happened after fans at a testing event in Qatar were denied access to water.

The largest of the eight venues to be used throughout the competition in November and December, Lusail Iconic Stadium hosted the Lusail Super Cup.

Qatar’s opening match against Ecuador is just a little over two months away. The Saudi Arabian and Egyptian champions squared off in the championship game in front of about 78,000 spectators.

Reports from the game, which took place on Friday, include fans waiting in huge lines and concession stalls running out of water. Al Hilal of Saudi Arabia won the game. However, some of the reports from the seaside city suggested that football felt secondary.

ESPN said that there was no longer any water available for supporters inside or outside the stadium before halftime. There were reports of people being caught in lines and pleading to be let through.

The game in Lusail was designed to help organisers identify any problems that might need to be resolved before the World Cup.

The spokesperson stated that “every team involved in the event’s organisation received the priceless experience they will carry into this year’s tournament.”

During the game, temperatures reportedly reached 34 degrees Celsius, and a lot of humidity. The temperature will have significantly dropped by the time the competition takes place in November.

On Friday, former Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo gave Al Hilal the lead before Ahmed Sayed pulled Zamalek even. Although the score was tied, the Saudi team won on penalties.

Not the first controversy

The World Cup, which will be held away from its customary summer window, has been plagued by controversy before. While measures have been taken to ease attendees’ concerns regarding accommodations, the treatment of stadium employees has drawn criticism.
