As the State of Qatar prepares to host the World Cup for the first time in the history of the Arab world and the Middle East, from November 21 to December 18, 2022, observers confirm that the World Cup in Qatar will be distinguished by the use of advanced technologies and modern technology for the first time in history.

According to Al Jazeera, technology will be an aid to the fans' enjoyment inside and outside the stadiums

Artificial intelligence

Writer Steve Pearce says - in a report published by "Forbes" magazine, that the World Cup that will be held in Qatar will receive the help of artificial intelligence to help referees in managing matches.

FIFA intends to use “offside technology” to track the hands and feet of players to control offside in the 2022 World Cup.

Smart roads in Doha

Al Jazeera reported that Traffic Technology recently won a contract to supply its "smart city" program to manage the road network in Qatar during the 2022 FIFA World Cup, according to the Market Herald platform.

The platform indicated that the aforementioned smart city program creates a digital copy (virtual representation) of the road network used in Qatar, which can be used for applications such as traffic control systems, which leads to managing this movement more efficiently than before, especially during the World Cup matches. And the expected traffic congestion during it, especially with the arrival of hundreds of thousands of fans from all over the world to the State of Qatar to follow the World Cup matches and encourage their teams.

This program gives special priority to buses during the World Cup, because many of these buses will transport the participating teams from their places of residence to the stadiums and back, as well as transport fans to and from these stadiums.

Cooling technology

Although the World Cup will be held in winter for the first time, Qatar's stadiums will be equipped with cooling systems to ensure an ideal temperature for players and spectators, as the outside air is cooled through solar-powered air conditioning fans, and cold air enters the stadium through openings in the stands.

Wearable devices for medical assistance

A series of wearable electronic devices are currently in development to help avoid medical emergencies for any fan attending the World Cup in Qatar, and work continues to print low-energy sensors directly onto the fabric to measure heart rate, breathing, and hydration into matching jerseys that will be distributed during the competition.

Smart food delivery apps

Fans will be able to order food to their seats at Qatar's stadiums, using the Asapp smartphone app where fans can arrange for food to be delivered to their seats or picked up via express queues, which means plenty of time for fans who have been missing out on several goals, as they are busy buying and bringing food.

Sensory viewing rooms

Sensory viewing rooms have been established in stadiums to provide safe and quiet spaces for people with autism or those who have other health problems that prevent them from watching matches from the stands. These rooms feature an interactive display of matches, controlled lighting, and games to help them enjoy watching the match in a comfortable environment.
