The country is expecting around 1.5million fans to arrive for the tournament. “Fan Village Cabins” in the Free Zone near the old airport were advertised for £175 a night, promising “tea and coffee making facilities, two bottles of water per day, a fridge, bed linen and bathroom towels” as well as a Metro station nearby.
While it’s unclear which fan village is depicted in the video, viewers on social media were quick to criticise the conditions and compare it to Fyre Festival.

Soon, the #fyrefestival hashtag was trending.
“Been saying it for months, these boys ain’t ready - the equivalent of half the country’s population is going. Fyre festival is gonna look like Coachella compared to this nightmare,” a fan wrote.
“Got to feel sorry for those travelling to Qatar for the World Cup to pay £180 a night to stay here…” posted the account Football Away Days.
