The decision to hold the World Cup in Qatar, the first Middle Eastern country to host the event, has drawn criticism from human rights groups over the Gulf state’s treatment of foreign migrant workers and restrictive social laws under which homosexuality and sex outside marriage are outlawed.

“We think that much of the criticism has been unfair, not based on actual reality. Whatever we thought was fair criticism, we have taken with us,” Khater said.

He was speaking at the Lusail Stadium, which is hosting the World Cup final. The 80,000-capacity arena will handle a capacity crowd for the first time on Friday for the Lusail Super Cup, the final major test event for World Cup readiness.

World Cup organizers ignored questions about how Qatari security officials would deal with fans who broke laws, such as smuggling alcohol into stadiums or being violent.

They also did not give details on which countries would send police officers or soldiers to Qatar to help secure the tournament, which starts on November 20.

Over a million fans are expected to attend the event, with many flying or driving in from the neighboring Gulf states.
Doha spent years improving its infrastructure in the run-up to the World Cup, including building seven new stadiums, a metro system and new highways. Khater said the cost of Qatar’s World Cup was “in line with or less” than the last three.
