Qatar 2022: England’s most loyal fans forced to abandon World Cup over ‘complete shambles’ tickets system
One member of the england supporters’ travel club claims to have been quoted almost £20,000 for eight nights on a cruise ship.
Some of England’s most loyal fans have been forced to abandon plans to attend the World Cup, describing the accommodation booking system in Qatar as a “complete shambles”.
Members of the England Supporters’ Travel Club, who pay £75 to join for access to special benefits, are able to secure World Cup tickets via an allocation from the English Football Association. It is seen as a way to reward the team’s most loyal supporters who most frequently travel to games.
The deadline for ESTC members to apply for World Cup tickets was on Thursday, but fans have been disgruntled to discover that they could only book World Cup accommodation via Fifa’s fan portal when in possession of a ticket.
Accommodation on the portal, which is supposed to be more affordable than the exorbitant figures being quoted by external booking agencies, was made available in March to those supporters who had purchased general sale tickets.
More on World Cup 2022
Many England supporters have complained that the system disadvantages ESTC members – and their counterparts in other countries – who will not receive their tickets until May and fear they will miss out on cheaper accommodation.
With the cost of living increasing at the highest rate in decades – due to Russia’s war in Ukraine, the pandemic and Brexit – some fans do not want to apply for or purchase World Cup tickets until they know affordable accommodation is available and have been left in limbo. ESTC members have said they have decided not to go to the tournament due to the issue that one has described as a “complete shambles”.
Qatar organisers have essentially had to build a World Cup from scratch in the past 12 years, constructing new hotels, roads, an airport and a metro system. Accommodation will be available to World Cup attendees in hotels – which can cost several hundred pounds per night – and in apartments in central Doha, while temporary tournament accommodation is available on board cruise ships and in the Fan Village tents for those comfortable camping in the desert.
Supporters keen to book accommodation before applying for tickets have attempted to find alternative accommodation on the internet but have been quoted thousands of pounds for basic accommodation to cover the group- stage period. One supporter claims to have been quoted almost £20,000 for eight nights on a cruise ship.
More from Football
Fans have been complaining for several weeks now and the FA wrote to ESTC members in March to reassure them that more accommodation will be made available via the Fifa fan portal at a later date, but supporters remain unconvinced.
A spokesperson from Qatar’s Supreme Committee, organiser of the World Cup, told i : “The Supreme Committee Accommodation Agency Programme (which includes hotels, holiday homes, serviced apartments and villas, cruise ship hotels and fan villages) will deliver up to 130,000 rooms, or a total of 3.64 million room nights, which is a comfortable inventory for fans, teams and sponsors travelling to the Fifa World Cup Qatar 2022.
“Room rates (based on two-person occupancy) start at the low rate of around £65.
“At this stage, we are inviting ticket holders to book their accommodation, including PMA ticket holders. We appreciate that some allocations have not yet been confirmed, but the Host Country Accommodation Portal will offer various options throughout the year, is being continuously updated, and stock will be held back for fans who have not yet obtained their tickets.
“Fans are encouraged to check the website regularly if the accommodation type they are looking for is not currently available. Fans can also book accommodation through traditional means, such as hotel and holiday accommodation websites.
“We anticipate a number of visiting fans will stay with friends or family during the tournament. We are also anticipating day-trippers who will make the most of Qatar’s strategic location and fly or drive in and out on the same day from neighbouring countries.”
England manager Gareth Southgate has been hugely supportive of the ESTC fans. “Travel club members are an important part of the journey of this England team and we value that loyalty at all times,” he said. “From the World Cup in Russia in 2018 to the Uefa Nations League in Portugal in 2019, we’ve seen first-hand how that unwavering support has gone hand in hand with the progress of this young group of players and we look forward to sharing more memories in the coming years.”
Fans, meanwhile, have already been able to apply for tickets to watch England play in the World Cup final. Tickets can be bought in three price categories, the cheapest is £535, next available is £887 and the most expensive costs £1,422.

55.4 Million Americans Expected to Travel for Thanksgiving
This year’s holiday forecast is a 2.3% increase over last year, third highest since 2000.
WASHINGTON, DC (November 13, 2023) – AAA projects 55.4 million travelers will head 50 miles or more from home over the Thanksgiving holiday travel period*. This year’s Thanksgiving forecast is an increase of 2.3% over last year and marks the third-highest Thanksgiving forecast since AAA began tracking holiday travel in 2000. The top two years were 2005 and 2019, respectively.
“For many Americans, Thanksgiving and travel go hand in hand, and this holiday, we expect more people on the roads, skies, and seas compared to 2022,” said Paula Twidale, Senior Vice President of AAA Travel. “Travel demand has been strong all year, and AAA’s Thanksgiving forecast reflects that continued desire to get away and spend time with loved ones.”
AAA expects 4.7 million people will fly over Thanksgiving, an increase of 6.6% compared to 2022 and the highest number of Thanksgiving air travelers since 2005. Tuesday and Wednesday before Thanksgiving are the busiest air travel days ahead of the holiday and the most expensive. While Sunday is typically the busiest day to return home, AAA data shows Monday is also a popular day to fly back after Thanksgiving.
The number of people traveling by cruise, bus, and train over Thanksgiving is up nearly 11% over last year. AAA expects 1.55 million travelers will head out of town using these other modes of transportation, which took a huge hit during the pandemic but have rebounded nicely. “The cruise industry, in particular, has made a remarkable comeback,” Twidale added. “Thanksgiving cruises are mostly sold out, with many travelers looking to spend the holiday at sea.”
Best/Worst Times to Drive and Peak Congestion by Metro
INRIX, a provider of transportation data and insights, expects Wednesday, November 22, to be the busiest day on the roads during the Thanksgiving holiday travel period, with average travel times as high as 80% over normal in some metro areas. INRIX recommends leaving in the morning or after 6 p.m. to avoid the heaviest holiday congestion.
“The day before Thanksgiving is notoriously one of the most congested days on our roadways. Travelers should be prepared for long delays, especially in and around major metros,” said Bob Pishue, transportation analyst at INRIX. “Knowing when and where congestion will build can help minimize holiday traffic frustrations. We advise drivers to use traffic apps, local DOT notifications, and 511 services for real-time updates.”
Please note – the times listed below are for the time zone the metro is located in. For example, Atlanta routes = ET and Los Angeles routes = PT.
Holiday Booking Prices
This holiday season, travelers are generally paying less for domestic trips compared to last year and more for international vacations. The one exception is airfare, which is slightly more expensive for domestic flights this season and a bit lower for international flights. Here’s a breakdown of average booking prices for November and December, according to AAA data.
- The average price for a domestic flight is $681, up 5% from 2022.
- The average price for an international flight is $1,231, down 5.7% from last year.
- The average price for a domestic hotel stay is $598, down 12% from 2022.
- The average price for an international hotel stay is $772, up 5% from last year.
- The average price for a domestic rental car reservation is $590, down 20% from 2022.
- The average price for an international rental car reservation is $696, up 9% from last year.
- The average price for a domestic cruise is $1,507, down 12% compared to 2022.
- The average price for an international cruise is $2,902, up 24% from last year.
- The average price for a domestic tour is $1,058, down 15% compared to 2022.
- The average price for an international tour is $1,208, up 21% from last year.
Top Holiday Destinations
Warm weather destinations, theme parks, tourist attractions, historic sites, and cruise port cities top the list of domestic and international destinations this holiday season.
Holiday Forecast Methodology
In cooperation with AAA, S&P Global Market Intelligence developed a unique methodology to forecast actual domestic travel volumes. The economic variables used to forecast travel for the current holiday are leveraged from S&P Global Market Intelligence’s proprietary databases. These data include macroeconomic drivers such as employment, output, household net worth, asset prices including stock indices, interest rates, housing market indicators, and variables related to travel and tourism including gasoline prices, airline travel, and hotel stays. AAA and S&P Global Market Intelligence have quantified holiday travel volumes going back to 2000.
Historical travel volume estimates come from DK SHIFFLET’s TRAVEL PERFORMANCE/Monitor SM . The PERFORMANCE/Monitor SM is a comprehensive study measuring the travel behavior of U.S. residents. DK SHIFFLET contacts over 50,000 U.S. households each month to obtain detailed travel data, resulting in the unique ability to estimate visitor volume and spending, identify trends, and forecast U.S. travel behavior, all after the trips have been taken.
The travel forecast is reported in person-trips. In particular, AAA and SPGMI forecast the total U.S. holiday travel volume and expected mode of transportation. The travel forecast presented in this report was prepared the week of October 9, 2023.
*Thanksgiving Holiday Travel Period
For the purposes of this forecast, the Thanksgiving holiday travel period is defined as the five-day period from Wednesday, November 22 to Sunday, November 26.
