LEGACY OF THE WORLD CUP IN QATAR

WorldCup-Banner

The world cup is an event that takes place every four years and 32 national teams travel to wherever they come from and go to one country who is the host of the tournament and is chosen by the FIFA council. Every time the world cup comes about in a country, it does not leave that country the same and that's what we call the legacy of a world cup. This year, Qatar hosted the world cup so the question is "what is the legacy of world cup in Qatar?".

If you ask me ,I would say that first of all the legacy of world cup in Qatar means the things, practices and long term effects that are left in Qatar due to it hosting the event.

LEGACY ON INFRASTRUCTURE

The world cup has led to the construction of world class infrastructure in Qatar. For example- seven new stadia and one renovated: Al Bayt Stadium, Khalifa International Stadium, Al Thumama Stadium, Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium, Lusail Stadium, Stadium 974, Education City Stadium and Al Janoub Stadium. Besides that, many hotels were built and at least 42 hotels had to be be built for the accommodation plus other infrastructure like roads and new residences, hotel rooms and even a sewage system were built to accommodate an estimated 1.2 million fans. So I think if it were not for world cup all these wouldn't have been built in such a short time. The buildings are the legacy of world cup on the infrastructure since these things shall remain there for the people to use even after world cup.

LEGACY OF PEOPLE'S LIVES

The event has brought the people of Qatar to experience the joy and feeling of a world event where all eyes in the world are focused on them. They have felt the beauty of the game and even seen their stars play on their home ground, how inspiring!

The people of Qatar have been provided with new job opportunities due to the infrastructure wave in Qatar and this will boost their economies at individual levels.

I also think that with everything that has been done in Qatar for the world cup, the people of Qatar are going to be compelled to pay more attention to the sport and engage even more in football so don't get surprised if you see Qatar crushing people in the 2026 world cup. That is what the world cup has left in the hearts of the people in Qatar.

LEGACY ON CULTURE,TOURISM AND POLICY

The event has brought about different people from all over the world with different cultures. In supporting their national team, and dressing to show this, they have exhibited their different cultures. For example, in the match between Korean republic vs Ghana, I saw a Ghanaian fan praying using some beads for his team to win and I also saw a Korean man dressed in the ancient emperor's robes depicting the different cultures in their home countries. So basically, people in Qatar have experienced these different cultures and they might even inspire new dress in Qatar.

The fact that over 1.5 million people went to Qatar for the world cup means that they shall also be exposed to the great historical places and cultures in Qatar and this will have a positive impact on the tourism industry of Qatar cause definitely many would like to go back to Qatar to experience their hospitality in tourism. This will also be good for their economy to fully recover after having spent over $220 billion in preparation.

The Qatar law against the LGBTQ community brought many discussions to the table and people were arguing the government to care more about human rights so maybe after the world cup the Qatar government might change in it's policies to promote human rights more.

So basically, the world cup shall forever change the lives of the people in Qatar and that is the LEGACY OF WORLD CUP.

    The world cup is a big game which happens every 4 years it is really fun. You get lots of rewards like man of the match, golden boot and golden glove. I think Portugal or France or Brazil

    In my opinion, hosting a major football event has negative and positive effects: Positive: We know that the football game was made to bring the world together. We see that there are players from different countries or fans from different countries such as Portugal, Argentina, Arab countries and the Arab Gulf states. Also winning the World Cup gives hope, optimism and unspeakable joy and has great financial value. We know that after the match is over, we see that the place has become polluted and full of rubbish, and thus provides a job opportunity for people who do not work. People can volunteer to clean up the stadium. The negative effects are the occurrence of conflicts between players when Plenty or a penalty kick occurs. Psychological pressure of players and tension. pollution.

    But didn't any of you ask yourselves why Qatar put in over $220billion to organize this event yet there are other important things it would use it for to help develop the country. If you think that the $220 billion would have been used in a different way share with us your views. And if you think what Qatar did was also right to put in all that money you can also give us your views . Because this festival is all about learning from each other and getting to know what other people think about a situation

    I think that Qatar should not host the world cup because the only reason they're in the world cup is because they're hosting it. If they were not hosting the wouldn't of Qualified.(I think that a country like Brazil, England or Argentina should host the world cup.)

  • imaginative_badger | Lyons Hall Primary School A | United Kingdom 02 Dec 2022

  • storytelling_memory | Lyons Hall Primary School A | United Kingdom 02 Dec 2022

    I think the World Cup is really special TO ME I would say Quatar is a good place but it is to hot for the players would be to hot after the game becuase they would be running alot. I think the footballers have worked really hard and will try there hardest everyone has a goal different goals and if you like football and if somebody else dosent they MIGHT HAVE A DIFFRENT ONE

  • adaptable_guineapig | Lyons Hall Primary School A | United Kingdom 02 Dec 2022

    Qatar should not of hosted the world cup because they did not think of the safety of the workers who built the stadium. What was so important to Qatar about the world cup to make them want to host it?

  • noble_apple | Lyons Hall Primary School A | United Kingdom 02 Dec 2022

    I dont think that the world cup should be held in Qatar because it would be hot for the players that aren't used to

    The point is not to make money out of all this infrastructure, the point is for people to see "Qatar". gulf countries are trying to be tourist attractions. and its tough when a lot of people have terrible wrong concepts of what the Arab world is. best of wishes to Qatar. I don't know if they are hosting 1 million tourist, but if they are, its a challenge of it own.

    The success of the State of Qatar as the first Arab country to host the FIFA World Cup thanks to its distinguished file, which included the use of sustainable technologies and advanced technology and the preparation of environmentally friendly stadiums, and this point is one of the most important positives that must be generalized to all countries, and the step of change starts from here for the rest of the fields, so building 12 empty stadiums From carbon emissions, the stadiums will operate with solar energy to provide a cool climate for the fans and the teams, and this reduces environmental pollution. Humans are capable of change, so that we can make the World Cup a legacy of the beginning of a clean environment!

    The legacy of the World Cup, what a wonderful title
    The departed leave a material and moral legacy that remains for a lifetime
    The effect may be beautiful and leave an imprint of joy in the hearts, or it may be painful, leaving a painful scar
    The effect may be equal, and the thing will have its negatives and positives
    It is very nice for an Arab country to host the World Cup, despite the huge sums it provided to prepare for this great event. However, the great impact that has returned to the State of Qatar may be very large, as all services are provided, and the financial returns are great.
    I hope that this World Cup will leave a beautiful impact, spread sportsmanship, and be a reason to spread the culture that the whole world has one heart beating in one body.

  • articulate_night | Lyons Hall Primary School C | United Kingdom 09 Dec 2022

    I think that it is exiting that Qatar are the first Arab country to host the World Cup

  • excited_king | Lyons Hall Primary School C | United Kingdom 09 Dec 2022

    I think it is a really fun but it only happens ones in 4 year

  • Volunteer Icon Matthew @ PA 09 Dec 2022

    Interesting you mentioned tourism, one key aspect is sustainable tourism. How could Qatar increase the number of visitors without impacting the historical places and culture as you mention?

There are, Europe has 13 countries, American has 7 , Africa has 5, Asia has 6, and the oceanic has only one representative to participate in the world cup
