Qatar is reportedly planning to spend $200 billion over the next decade as it prepares to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

According to Sport24, $140 billion from that amount will be for transportation, infrastructure including a new airport, roads and a metro system to deal with the 400, 000 fans expected for the month-long tournament.

The report further said that another $20 billion would go into tourism infrastructure as the Gulf nation expects the amount coming from the number of tourists to reach $3.7 million annually by 2022.

Qatar was awarded the World Cup in December 2010, beating out the United States, Australia, Japan and South Korea, the report added.
