Hotels and other types of accommodation may well be expensive during the tournament and some fans will be looking for alternatives to staying in Qatar for the whole event.

Does Qatar have enough hotels for the World Cup?

Qatar has only 40,000 rooms and they is going at a premium.

There are 8 stadiums and demand will be high esspecially during the league stages.

There will be 3 games-a-day, hence affordability is a big question.

An alternative destination will be flying to Dubai but Dubai is at an ultra-premium now.

Sri Lanka considers itself as an option for accommodation in between games during the tournament since the flight time between Doha and Colombo is 4 hours 50 minutes.
