Qatar has learned how to properly organise the 2022 FIFA World Cup from Russia's successful experience hosting the tournament this summer, Qatari Minister of Municipality and the Environment Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Rumaihi said.
"We learnt a lot: how to organize the transportation, people moving from area to area, stadium organization — it was a very good organization. We are learning also how the municipality runs gardening, waste management, and all the other issues, so technically we are very happy to see Moscow as a city and Russia successful in organization. This is very important for the World Cup," Rumaihi said.
Russia hosted its first World Cup on June 14-July 15. Matches took place in the cities of Kaliningrad, Kazan, Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod, Rostov-on-Don, Samara, Saransk, Sochi, St. Petersburg, Volgograd, and Yekaterinburg. The tournament ended with the victory of the French national team.
Qatar was chosen by FIFA to host the next World Cup in 2022.
