So what do you do when you want to play soccer but the temperature outside is hot enough to melt your ball? You build fake clouds of course, duh.
That’s exactly what Qatar plans to do for the 2022 World Cup in an attempt to counteract 122 degree daytime temperatures. Scientist and Planners are toying around with what is essentially a massive helium-filled blimp to hover over stadiums providing some much needed relief to fans and players.
The only crazier idea was FIFA President SEPP BLATTER’s lobby attempt to move the games to the winter months so relatively speaking this isn’t such a bad idea.
You’ve really got to hand it to FIFA thus far; the 2022 Qatar World Cup is over 4000 days away and the press for this cup hasn’t stopped since the country won the first Middle Eastern World Cup back in December.
Check out the video of the stadium plan below.
