FIFA made public about the change of the date of the inauguration of the World Cup. Tomasz Włodarczyk commented on the whole situation. – I perceive it as another symbol of the disastrous organization of this World Cup – said our journalist on the Meczyki channel (YouTube).
On Thursday, the football world announced that the inauguration of the World Cup was postponed to November 20, which is a day earlier than originally planned. On that day at the Al Bayt Stadium, Qatar will play against Ecuador.
The rescheduling of the first match a few months before the start of the event was strongly commented on by Tomasz Włodarczyk in the “Sportowy Poranek” program.
– I perceive it as another symbol of the disastrous organization of this World Cup in many respects. We can start from human rights, to the de facto scale of corruption, how this World Cup was awarded to Qatar. We are all aware that there should not be a World Cup in this country, if only because of the weather conditions – he assessed.
– The first point in the handbook of the World Cup is that the championships must be held in June and July. And this World Cup for the first time in history will be held in November and December. 92 years of history have been deleted in order to host the World Cup for the first time in an Arab country – He said.
Włodarczyk referred to the situation related to the overnight stay in Qatar.
– Qatar has 90,000 hotel places. One and a half million fans are to come. This is a shocking number and shows that a country the size of the Mazowieckie Voivodeship should never organize such a tournament – stated.
– The prices are outrageous. If someone comes to the sites, he may fall off the chair. Renting an apartment for two or three weeks is an amount in the range of PLN 100,000. PLN up – the journalist Meczyków concluded.
