New video shows basic conditions of World Cup fan rooms in Qatar

Some football fans staying in Qatar for the World Cup are having to settle for pretty basic accommodation, a new video has shown:

People will be on the look out for a place to stay as the local area is believed to be over-booked.

Nearly 2.9 million tickets have been sold for the tournament.

For context, the 2021 population of Qatar is just under three million, which has always meant that accommodation would clearly be limited.

As a solution Qatar are offering fans the option of staying 'Fan Camps' which tend to accommodate two people per tent.

If the video above is anything to go by, you'll be getting a very basic looking set-up with two single beds and a pop up table in-between.

Another tent listed on the Qatar World Cup accommodation website states that the price for one tent, per night, for one guest, start from a whopping $207.36 (£174.65).

The listing reads: "Fan Village Cabins Rawdat Al Jahhaniya offer a choice of a double or twin en-suite bedroom, sleeping up to two people. Amenities in each cabin include tea and coffee making facilities, two bottles of water per day, a fridge, bed linen and bathroom towels.

"Baby cots are available for infants under 3 years old at a cost of $10USD (£8.42) per night (approximately 37 QAR). This is payable on site when checking in.

"A maximum of 1 infant is permitted to stay in each cabin. Infant guest details must be added at the time of your booking or added to your booking at least 7 days before arrival."

Commenting on the clip above, which has gone viral on social media, one fan tweeted: "HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Holy S**t this is bad, but not nearly as bad as everything else about this World Cup."

"WTF is this, not exactly secure is it... ?!" another penned.

A third person said: "This is worse than my uni accom hahahahah."

Someone else thought: "They should be paying the fans to stay in these."

"You’ve got to be taking the piss," a fifth added.

Another thought: "Over 100 billion spent on infrastructure??

"Shambles of a World Cup in every way."

In total, the controversial World Cup is expected to cost Qatar $220 billion (£185.29 billion) and each stadium has reportedly cost in the range of $6.5 billion (£5.47 billion) and $10 billion (£8.42 billion).
