Tournament officials insist football fans will find a range of affordable accommodation in Qatar 2022 in November.
The Football Supporters’ Association, which represents England and Wales fans, has expressed concern about the pricing.
But the World Cup hosts promise a “variety of price options”, with fan village tariffs starting at £66 a night, based on two entries.
Options will also include “home cabins” that look like luxury cottages, and self-catering apartments in hotels.
Prices for Barwa South Resort start at £80 and West Bay Serviced Apartments are £260. A six-bedroom villa for up to 12 people costs £700, while Lusail Apartments costs £220 a night.
Some of the players’ partners, such as Harry Kane’s wife Katie Goodland, 29, Jordan Henderson’s wife, Rebecca Burnett, 31, and Raheem Sterling’s fiancée, Paige Millian, 26, are likely to reside on a cruise ship moored in Doha, which is also available.
Prices on the four-star Poesia cruise ship start at around £136 per night.
A cabin with a double bed and bunk beds designed to sleep four people in the five-star MSC Europa costs GBP 486 per night for a minimum of four nights. Birth cruises cost between £260 to £385, with suites priced at £1900 a night.
Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy has confirmed that room rates will start from £66, with two participants.
Altogether, the host country will provide up to 130,000 rooms to the more than 1 million fans they anticipate.
Accommodation is available in conjunction with FIFA stage ticket sales.
A spokesperson for the organizing committee said: “The accommodations are designed to meet the request of any ticket-holding fan looking for a room.”
