The 2022 FIFA world cup which is scheduled to take place in Qatar from November 21 to December 18 is expected to attract millions of spectators from all across the world. The country, with its limited accommodation, had previously announced shuttle services from neighbouring countries to meet the influx of visitors

UAE hotels and homestays are witnessing a major upswing before the final kick-off of the biggest sporting event in the region. Experts see at least a 20% increase in room rates, and many expect 100% occupancy during the Qatar World Cup. Industry experts expect the football spectacle to boost the hospitality industry in the country.

Varun Ahuja, Director of Sales at Aloft Dubai South said, “The demand for rooms during the World Cup is causing a surge in prices, with a 20 percent increase in room rates, especially during the group stages. Being a hotel close to the airport, we have a robust pipeline of individual and group bookings from (match) ticket holders, and we expect demand for accommodation to spike again in August and September.”

Saeed Al Zubaidi, CEO of Like Home by Dar Al Zain Vacation Homes Rental said, “People are preferring to stay in Dubai and travel to Qatar to watch the games since it is just 30 minutes away by plane.”

“That way they can visit Dubai while attending the World Cup in Qatar. It’s the best of both worlds. Due to that, holiday home prices have gone up making it high season with an occupancy rate expected to reach 100%. We are currently focusing on increasing the properties under our management in order to accommodate as much people as we can.”
