Kish Facilities Proposed for Qatar World Cup

Sports and Youth Minister Masoud Soltanifar said Qatar can use the facilities of Kish Island, in south Iran, for the 2022 World Cup which the peninsular Arab country is due to host.
On the sidelines of the Fourth Islamic Conference of Youth and Sports Ministers in Baku, Azerbaijan, Soltanifar held talks with his Qatari counterpart Salah bin Ghanim Al Ali and announced Iran’s support for the global event, ISNA reported.
The 2022 World Cup will be the first of its kind to be held in the Middle East, and in an Arab and a Muslim-majority country. The tournament will be the last to involve 32 teams, with an increase to 48 teams scheduled from the 2026 tournament.
The event will also mark the first World Cup not to be held in May, June or July; the tournament is instead scheduled for late November until mid-December.
“Hosting the World Cup is an important event for Qatar and countries of the region,” Soltanifar said.
