Stadiums in a very tight perimeter

The 2022 World Cup will take place in eight stadiums. Only one, the Khalifa International Stadium, existed before the designation, in 2010, of Qatar as host of the tournament. Since then, the emirate has acquired 7 other stadiums, some of which are equipped with air conditioning systems. A “solution” dictated by the fact that originally, the World Cup was to be played in summer, a season when temperatures can rise to 50°C. But in 2014 FIFA decided for the first time to organize a World Cup at the end of the year.
