The FIFA World Cup is the most watched sporting event on the planet. There is nothing to compare it with. It dwarfs even the Olympics. We are just a week away from this year’s spectacle and just to add to the already fever pitch excitement surrounding the event, here is some football coverage.
Qatar is one of the contenders to host the 2022 version of the event and though that does sound a long time away the architects have already turned in their concepts for the stadiums. Designed by Albert Speer & Partner GmbH, these 5 concept-stadiums display striking and dramatic facades and incorporate state-of-the-art technology in an effort to stand out from the crowd bidding to host the event.
UPDATE: Qatar has been confirmed as the hosting nation for the 2022 World Cup. Also Russia has been voted to host the event in 2018.
