And the number of immigrants is striking. They represent more than 80% of the 2.7 million inhabitants, of which 2.42 million are foreigners.
Perhaps this can explain how caravans appeared through the streets of hundreds of people from Bangladesh, Pakistan, India and other nationals who supported wildly with shirts from teams from Argentina, Brazil, Spain, Germany, among other soccer powers.
The effervescence towards soccer has been noted, as citizens of countries that tend to identify with other sports (especially cricket), have now taken a great interest in the popular players – and their teams – in the World Cup.
Like every World Cup venue, for 30 days, the countries turn to support their World Cup. However, Qatar “exaggerated” in the way of “selling” its locality. There is no corner where the logo or aspects that have to do with the biggest sporting event in the world do not appear.
One of the interesting situations for the fans was the number of games that could be enjoyed in the stadiums.
During the first round of groups, three games were shown daily: 1:00 p.m., 6:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. local time, so it was possible to watch up to two games per day.
