Qatar considering tented desert camps for 2022 World Cup fans

Qatar may house thousands of football fans in Bedouin-style tents in desert areas close to stadiums during the 2022 World Cup, as tumbling oil prices have forced the tiny Gulf state to delay projects, including building hotels. Most of the expected 500,000 fans are expected to stay in hotels and apartments but contrary to Qatars World Cup bid in 2010, when it said it would create more than 55,000 rooms, authorities said in January that 46,000 rooms would be ready.
