Team hotels revealed where Socceroos will stay, how much a room will cost, latest updates, news

The International Football Association (FIFA) said on Wednesday that the 32 football teams competing in this year’s World Cup will be stationed in replicas of Arabian palaces, spas and luxury hotels where alcohol is banned.

According to a list published by the sport’s global governing body, 24 teams will be based in centers around the capital – hotels as well as university halls of residence.

All teams have opted to stay in the small Gulf nation for the tournament, which begins on November 18.

Socceroos are based in the Aspire Academy, which includes six outdoor and one full-size indoor soccer pitches, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, an indoor athletics track, an outdoor gym and a table tennis area.

According to FIFA, the stadium rooms consist of 128 double rooms and a four-room dormitory.

While Australia’s fixtures weren’t quite as extravagant as some of the other competing teams, it’s worth noting that they were one of the last teams to win the World Cup, meaning accommodation options were slim.

France, the title holders, will stay in the Messila resort near Doha, which includes a “private palace”.

Villas cost more than $2,500 a night – champagne included.

Located in Shollal overlooking the Gulf of Germany, it is considered the largest spa resort in the Middle East. The resort’s Royal Family, owned by Qatar’s ruling family, costs more than $10,000 a night.

Manuel Neuer and his team will travel 100 kilometers (62 miles) from Doha to the capital.

The resort supports “traditional Arabic and Islamic medicine” and has a strict alcohol policy.

Zulal general manager Daniel Fastolo said many teams visited the resort because it allowed them to be “in a bubble” away from the crowds of Doha.

He added that security will also be easy because there will be only one entrance.

“Fans who bother guests or the team asking for photos and autographs will not come here. So I think they can really isolate.

“But at the same time, if they have a day to look for distractions, they can drive to Doha.”

The nearby Nord Stadium, Germany’s training ground, is modeled after a castle.

Belgium chose the Hilton Salva on the opposite coast, with its own private beach, private water park, slides and cliff jumps, and villas costing up to $7,000 a night.

It is a favorite weekend destination for wealthy families in the Gulf country, which has the highest per capita income in the world.

England are holed up in the Al Wakrah Souq hotel, where officials plan to close part of the public beach near Harry Kane and the rest of the team.

There is no alcohol, as in most parts of Qatar, but the hotel facilities are adapted to bring exercise equipment, video games and other entertainment for gamers.

FIFA said most of the teams “are staying in hotels located within 10 kilometers (six miles) of each other, to ensure that the excitement for this event is concentrated in and around Doha”.

Brazil chose Westin downtown near a major road, while America will live in Kempinski’s harbor marina at The Pearl.

Argentina’s Lionel Messi and former champions Spain have opted for “luxury” accommodation at Qatar University where they can walk to their training ground.

More than one million fans are expected to travel to Qatar for the tournament, which ends on December 18.

Some will stay in hotels costing $2,000 a night, but many are expected to stay in cheap bungalows and desert camps.
