FIFA: The Qatar World Cup 2022 is a roadmap to ensure maximum efficiency for the next editions


According to FIFA, the Qatar World Cup 2022 will completely alter the norms for conducting a tournament that is sustainable and will leave a lasting impression on how to organise future competitions of a similar nature.

According to a report by FIFA, the stadiums hosting this year’s World Cup have been using a unique and comprehensive energy and water management programme that employs efficient designs, constructions, and operations.




According to the International Federation, all stadiums are 30% more energy efficient than average, use 40% less water than required by international standards, and 90% of temporary diesel generators have been replaced with equipment. Additionally, 90% of the stadiums’ cooling systems’ refined water vapour is used to irrigate the areas around the stadiums. The stations’ electrical substations offer cleaner grid energy and lessen air pollution. The five energy centres in the stadiums hosting the 2022 World Cup in Qatar have earned the “GSAS” certification for energy efficiency.

According to the report, this sustainable programme will continue to serve as a road map for future World Cup iterations to assure the highest level of operational effectiveness.

The supporting firms contributed a fleet of 311 ecologically friendly hybrid and electric vehicles, as well as 10 electric buses, to be utilised for the transportation of teams, officials, and VIPs throughout the competition, he noted, which had a substantial impact on decreasing carbon emissions.

This is the first time that so many electric vehicles have been made available to the regulators, and it will continue to be an unprecedented step as we advance in emphasising the need for sustainable mobility.

The Qatar World Cup 2022 organisers’ leadership spirit and commitment to recycling waste at the tournament level of plastic, aluminium, cardboard, paper, and glass, as well as converting compostable food and tableware to be composted at all stadiums and other official sites, are reflected in the report that stated the environmental duty of reducing, reusing, and recycling waste has been a main theme of the policy followed in the tournament since the early planning stages.

The 20,000 volunteers and the workforce’s uniforms were all created from recycled materials, and they were delivered in bags made from clothing and banners from prior events.

According to the report, inclusivity was one of the game-changing factors that led to the expansion of the features that were put in place at the Qatar 2022 World Cup this year to help make the event more accessible to spectators with special needs. These features included parking, accessible transportation, and mobility assistance. In addition to giving informative audio explanation in English and, for the first time, in Arabic, all stadiums have five different ticket types for those with disabilities and those with limited mobility, allowing them to enjoy sporting events in a live stadium setting.

Also, for the first time in a World Cup, sensory rooms have been provided for people with sensory access equipment to allow them to attend the match without being overwhelmed by the sounds and stimuli of match day.

Additionally, sensory chambers have been made available for the first time at a World Cup so that fans who use sensory access devices can watch the game without being overstimulated by the noise and sensations on matchday
