Quatar, FIFA World Cup has sent into uncharted territory on Thursday handed tournaments 2018 and 2022 to Russia and Qatar, respectively.

Selection of Qatar has dashed hopes high for the U.S. – and the Tampa Bay area – which was bidding to host the event in 2022. Tampa was among the U.S. cities hoping to host matches.

The United States and Australia had been tipped as favorites alongside Qatar. Japan and South Korea were also nominated.

Qatar World Cup brings to the smallest home but never had a financial power unprecedented staging the largest global event unique sports. He overcame the objections to the Games in the heat of the desert and asked FIFA to take a “bold gamble.”

“We’re going to new lands,” FIFA President Sepp Blatter said.

After three days of high anxiety when Britain sent the Prime Minister, David Cameron, Prince William and David Beckham for the intense lobbying and the United States will rely on former president Bill Clinton, no n ‘ was a match for novelty coming from Qatar and Russia.

“Thank you for believing in change,” said the emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani.

Qatar will stage a World Cup in and around Doha in a desert, but promises a summer technology for cooling fans and players.

After removal from Australia, Japan and South Korea, it came down to a duel between the United States, promising enormous commercial spoils in a growing market, and the new territory of the region Persian Gulf, still flush with wealth, despite the global financial crisis crisis.

Qataris and others – including workers from South Asia – immediately started dancing in the streets along the waterfront of Doha Bay. Some blew the vuvuzelas which became synonymous with the World Cup in South Africa.

Qatar has asked FIFA to take “bold step” and stressed the extreme heat of the desert nation would not be a problem.

Throughout his lobbying effort, he stressed the compact nation had money, resources and high technology to overcome the objections of logistics.

The tournament will take place when temperatures usually exceed 118 degrees in Qatar. FIFA said the potential risk posed by heat.

She emphasized that the World Cup in Mexico in 1986 and 1994 in the United States has also faced massive heat and both have been successful major sports.

Qatar promises to spend $ 50 billion and infrastructure improvements and $ 4 billion to build nine stadiums and renovating three others. No stage would be an hour apart, while many would be dismantled and items will be sent to poor countries.

In the wake of the successful organization of the World Cup in the once-divided South Africa, one of the strongest arguments of Qatar is that the tournament would have a transformative effect in the region.

Selection of Russia took place despite the non-presentation of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, but his influence still had an impact on voters than the FIFA 22 offers conquered England, Spain, Portugal and Belgium-Netherlands.

Few gave the Russian bid lucky after the charismatic Putin suddenly out of the final presentation, despite presenting himself as a lifelong personal surety of supply.

Yet he came through, in part based on assurances from Moscow and strong government, like Qatar, able to secure funding for its huge reserves of natural energy.

After arriving in Zurich strongly in favor of winning the nomination Russian officials spent Wednesday denying suggestions that the absence of Vladimir Putin showed confidence fading. Putin would fly to Switzerland to attend the celebrations.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov called under the authority of FIFA football for social change and likened the choice of the “very courageous decision and wise” for award of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

“We are building a new Russia,” Putin’s deputy said. “We can achieve this faster and better with your help.”

Tampa bid committee is hopeful that it would stage the games. Orlando was host in 1994, a disappointing time for Tampa because the old Tampa Stadium does not meet international football.

Tampa soccer optimism was based discovered around Raymond James Stadium, which opened in 1998. It was built with the World Cup in mind. In fact, Farrukh Quraishi, Vice-Chairman of Tampa Bay’s World Cup bid, has served as a consultant for the construction firm HOK when the new stadium was planned.

Chuck Sykes, chairman of the Bay Area, said that each World Cup match and is equivalent to 100 million in economic benefits. If Tampa were selected through a successful bid of U.S. Raymond James Stadium would have allowed at least four games.
