Mega-rich fans wanting to attend the World Cup in Qatar will be delighted at their latest lavish offering.

An eye-catching video has been released of the luxury development within the 60,000-seater arena.

The footage begins with a shot of an anonymous hotel room bed and side table
But the camera then pans to a large window and view of the 60,000-seater stadium
Footage initially shows the bed which looks like it could be from a hotel room anywhere in the world.
The camera pans to a table before all of a sudden the enormous stadium comes into view.
Al Bayt is in the northern city of Al Kohr and is one of eight specially made stadiums for the World Cup.
The ground is inspired by the tents used by nomads in the Qatar desert and will include a park, a lake and a retractable roof that can be opened in just 20 minutes.
When finished the stadium will have a park and retractable roof for the 2022 World Cup
Mega rich fans will be able to stay at the stadium and step right out onto the top tier
QATAR WORLD CUP STADIUMS AND CAPACITY
Al Wakrah Stadium – 40,000
Al Bayt Stadium – 60,000
Al Rayyan Stadium – 40,000
Education City Stadium – 40,000
Al Thumama Stadium – 40,000
Ras Abu Aboud Stadium – 40,000
Lusail Stadium – 80,000
Khalifa International Stadium – 40,000
It will also play host to one of the semi-final clashes in three years time.
The bed-to-stadium access is not a completely original idea as Bayern Munich offer a similar service at Allianz Arena and cricket supporters can put their feet up in the Hilton at the Ageas Bowl.
In Qatar, guests will potentially want to use the room for air conditioning as the controversial World Cup in 2022 is set to be played in extreme heat.
Criticism of the World Cup has not simply been confined to the temperatures as corruption and human rights issues have overshadowed the tournament to come.
The greatest area of concern is treatment of workers hired to build the infrastructure around the competition.
Amnesty International accused the organisers of ‘serious exploitation’ and an International Trade Union Confederation chief described workers as ‘basically slaves’.
Construction companies have trapped employees who have come over to help build stadiums by refusing to give passports or IDs back.
In 2013 the Guardian reported that Nepalese workers were dying at a rate of one-per-day with more than half coming from heart failure or workplace accidents.
There is no doubt that Qatar will provide a show of enormous wealth, luxury and entertainment in 2022 but many will feel the cost, both human and financial has been far too great.
