World Cup Finals Draw

Recommended Posts

Spent the last hour looking at the only game I'd make which is Iran and leaving 23rd Nov and returning 27th Nov. I have taken every European airport that has flights arriving in Doha today as a guide and gone direct from there in an effort to use that European city as a stop on route to try and keep the price down. Absolutely zero luck, cost is about the same from everywhere at approximately £1100 and considering you can do Edinburgh direct for £1150 it seems there's no deals to be had. 

Should we qualify I really would love to go but I feel priced out of this when you consider I wouldn't go without my boy who I'd also be paying for. I've also no interest in a "day trip" which has two 7 hour flights. Then you add in the fact that game kicks off at 1pm.

I looked at hotels too apparently all sold out so I can't even gauge cost!

Anyone got any better ideas?

Wait until 2026?

football is rotten now.  I can’t decide if that’s my view cos I’m older and like the “glory days” of 70s and 80s.  I really don’t have much interest in going to Qatar.  Feels like a plastic World Cup.  

I'm the same. I have zero interest in going to this World Cup. Never even considered it for a second. It won't be a proper World Cup.

I am definitely interested in going, should we qualify, however it is s logistical and cost nightmare...

All accomodation in Qatar is sold through official WC2022 website, and you have to key in ticket numbers to book anything. Therefore by the time we get tickets, there could be nothing left.

I have booked a hotel in Dubai for 10 days (free canx) and may fly in and out, but that will be even more expensive..

Apparently it is a 6 hour drive from Dubai to Doha, but as it goes through Saudi, I'm not sure if you can do it, without border issues..

I'd drive happily but its getting to Dubai or anywhere else within 500miles cheaply to make driving worth it.

Only other potential option is to see what Wonky Sheep come up with. They sent out a survey a few weeks ago with options to gauge interest. Don’t know what the feedback was from that though. They’ll maybe announce plans in more detail if we qualify. 
 

I’m in the same boat as you. Any potential trip would include my laddie so the daft costs are immediately doubled.
