RelayStation Supports Qatar's World Cup 2022 Bid

Video, voice and text message broadcaster RelayStation today announces its support for Qatar to host FIFA's World Cup 2022 finals. The announcement follows an impressive showing by members of the bid committee of the country's sporting credentials and facilities at this month's Leaders in Rugby (LiF) 09 event.

One thousand delegates representing the world of football attended LiF at Chelsea FC and had the opportunity to gauge the quality of Qatar's bid and footballing credentials as host of the 2006 Asian Games as well as the upcoming 2011 AFC Asian Cup.

"In these challenging economic times, countries with the resource to host such a global tournament as the World Cup have a clear advantage and Qatar has the fastest-growing economy and highest per capita GDP," says Sharon Maslyn, Rela­yS­ta­tion's managing director.
