One year to go until the 2022 World Cup in Qatar

Organizers are putting finishing touches on the stadiums

Location: DOHA, QATAR

The opening match will take place on November 21

in the 60,000 capacity Al Bayt Stadium

(SOUNDBITE) (English) SECRETARY GENERAL OF 2022 SUPREME COMMITTEE, HASSAN AL THAWADI, SAYING:

"This is not just a 28 day tournament, this is not just a football tournament. This is a milestone, one milestone within our country and our region's story. It is one milestone within our timeline. And we will try and utilise it to the maximum benefit possible to ensure we leave a lasting legacy."

Qatar is the smallest country in size to host a World Cup

All the stadiums are situated in and around the capital Doha

allowing supporters to attend multiple games on the same day

Organizers have faced numerous off-pitch issues

such as labor rights for migrant workers that have surrounded the event
