FIFA 2022: Qatar, The Legacy

FIFA 2022: Qatar, The Legacy edited by Qoronfleh and Essa (2021) contains 24 chapters on a wide range of topics related to FIFA 2022 in Qatar. While chapters of this book look at FIFA in Qatar, there is much beyond the title. There are unique chapters on the role of sport on society in Qatar, gender and sport, sports infrastructure, crowd management, comparative impact assessments based on past large sporting events (Russia, Brazil, South Africa), reflections on the impacts of COVID19, and Qatar's ambitions for being the most sustainable FIFA (buildings, carbon, plastics). Unfortunately the book is prohibitively expensive, at US$230 and unlikely to be accessible to many readers.
