Football from around the world
My name is Roy Ferris and I live in Qatar, in the Middle East. I'm born and bred in North West London I'm a lifelong QPR supporter. I still manage to get to three or four games a season. Football in Qatar is obviously very different to our usual home fayre. As hosts of the 2022 World Cup they have a lot to do to understand the needs to host such an event.
Qatar 2022 - A World Cup dream too far?
As a resident of Qatar for almost four years I am a regular spectator at local football matches. For the majority of the Qatari population, football is the only sport there is (thankfully not soccer). The Qatar Stars League currently has twelve sides, adorned by mainly foreign players from all over the world, many now naturalized Qataris. The league was recently given a boost by the signing of Spanish living legend Raul to the Al Saad club.
