Odds Tumble On World Cup Leaving Qatar

With BBC journalists being imprisoned in Qatar for having the nerve to take photographs, William Hill are offering 7/2 (from 6/1) that the 2022 World Cup does not take place in the desert state – 1/5 that it does.

“Despite the fact that construction is well underway, it is not a certainty that the World Cup will take place in Qatar come 2022 and any more PR disasters will only see the odds of it taking place elsewhere tumble even further,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


Will the 2022 World Cup take place in Qatar: 1/5 yes; 7/2 no
