Traveling to the World Cup vs. Watching at Home

The World Cup tournament is just around the corner. The most popular event in the world’s most popular sport has certainly gotten a ton of folks excited. In 2022, the World Cup will be taking place in Qatar and will be taking place from November 20 until December 18.

Football is the most popular sport in the world right now. It has over 3 billion fans around the globe, most of whom are excited about the upcoming event. Naturally, most of them won’t attend the tournament.

However, for those of you that can’t make it, you should know that there are some upsides to staying at home and watching from your house. In this article, we are going to take a look at the pros and cons of attending the event versus watching from home.

Why Stay Home?

Let us start with the aspect that most are interested in. After all, out of the 3.5 billion football fans around the world, most will not be able to attend. So, let us take a look at the pros of staying at home. Starting out with the simplest one, staying home, is much easier.

The World Cup will be televised worldwide. Sure, by watching it on the TV, you miss out on the excitement of being there, in the crowd, surrounded by fans. However, at home, you make your own atmosphere.

For those of you who love to bet, you might think you will miss out on something. But, if you want to legally bet on the World Cup, you need to look no further than your smartphone, computer, or tablet. Online betting websites have been growing in popularity precisely because of how easy it is to use them. And on top of that, they allow for all kinds of different betting, including live, multi-bet, etc.

Lastly, another reason to stay at home is the rescheduling of the event. Usually, the World Cup takes place during the summer. However, this year, it will take place in November and December. This schedule might throw a monkey wrench in the plans of anyone who might have attended had the event taken place during summer vacation.

In other words, many people might have no other choice but to stay at home. Some simply are not capable of taking a break from work during these months. And thus, they will have no other choice but to watch from their home’s comfort.

However, what about the people who are capable and still uncertain? What are some of the benefits of actually visiting Qatar in November, and being there, live for the FIFA World Cup?

Why Travel to Qatar?

For the people who will have the opportunity to visit Qatar this year, these are some of the reasons why you might want to check out the event live. There are a few main reasons why anyone would like to visit an event rather than watch it from home. Starting with the number one event, anyone goes to sporting events, that being, be around like-minded fans.

We touched upon this a bit, but during a sporting event, the atmosphere is just different. The loud chants of the fans of your team raise the excitement tenfold. When visiting the World Cup, all of the excitement is even higher. This is due to the fact that winning the World Tournament is one of the most prestigious accomplishments in the football world.

Another reason you might want to visit the World Cup is simply so you can also sightsee and experience a different culture. Qatar has a ton of interesting tourist sights, many of which have deep, significant historical value. So, if you are visiting Qatar, make sure you don’t miss out on the fabulous sights that the country has to offer.

Both ways of enjoying the tournament have their pros and cons. Staying at home will ensure that you have full control of the experience. You can set the atmosphere, the tone, and even the snacks. Whether you want to watch a match with friends or all by yourself, staying at home will ensure you are in total control.

On the other hand, traveling to Qatar will bring you a ton of excitement, not just because you are watching the most important football tournament among like-minded and equally excited fans. But also, because you will get to experience a new culture that otherwise you might not have ever gotten to know.
