Many readers will look at the title of this article and immediately dismiss it.
But, you should know, I am not wholly convinced about FIFA's decision to award the 2022 World Cup to Qatar, either.
In fact, I was almost certain that the tournament would fall into the hands of the United States. Considering the vast number of immigrants from competing nations already in the country, along with the phenomenal infrastructure and stadiums that currently exist to host a tournament of such caliber, it is a shock FIFA did not make a wiser selection.
I will not be a sore loser, though. Instead, I think it is important to look on the bright side.
Not taking into account the searing heat, alcohol bans, dearth of quality stadiums and lack of any major international competitor in the Middle East (especially the underwhelming host nation), the Qatar tournament might actually be worth it.
In these upcoming slides, I give you five good reasons to look forward to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
