Once there, we have to take into account the currency exchange. One Qatari riyal is equivalent to 26 or 27 euro cents, approximately. We are helped on this simulated journey by Anna, a friend who has lived in Doha for ten years.

After a flight that lasts around seven hours, the most likely thing is that we prefer to take a VTC to go to the accommodation and leave the suitcase. There is also the possibility of buying the transport card. From the third trip on the same day, the rest of the journeys of that day are free.

However, we must know that on the occasion of the World Cup they have created the ‘Hayya card’, a card that is necessary to enter the stadiums and that includes free travel on trains and buses.

With the suitcase already in the accommodation, we went out to see the atmosphere of the city. People waving the flag of their country, jerseys of all the teams and a lot of fuss to celebrate the start of the World Cup.

In Qatar there is only one shop where alcohol is sold and some pork, but to buy there you have to have a special permit and make an appointment in advance. Until now only non-Muslim residents working fool, declaring their salary, could obtain the permit. As a curiosity, our specific guide explains that you can only spend 10-15% of your base salary on alcohol each month. However, there are rumors that with the arrival of international enthusiasts they will open the store for them too. A beer costs around nine riyals (2.39 euros), while in the bar the price is five times higher. Of course, the organizers of the World Cup have prohibited the sale of alcohol in the vicinity of the stadiums

Therefore, the guide day we can get to spend, since we landed in Doha, about 50 euros, including taxi transport from the airport and dinner with beer. If what we want is to spend as little as possible during at least the two weeks that we are going to support La Roja, it is best to use public transport (or the cruise that includes travel to the stadiums where the Spanish team plays) and make a shop at the supermarket for the rest of the days.

After breakfast, we went to the supermarket to shop for several lunches or dinners. The basket costs us the same as a daily menu in Spain

, according to the Spanish Hospitality Business Confederation.

The game of the Spanish team against Costa Rica is coming up. We got to the stadium by public transport, following a wave of enthusiasts who chanted all kinds of football anthems. Inside the enclosure we don’t know how much drinks and food can cost us, but Anna assures that prices will go up during the month that the World Cup lasts.

Can’t wait to see La Roja in action!

What a joy to see Red in action!

Since during the game we have not eaten or drunk for fear of prices, we left hungry and browsed different restaurants. In Qatar it is easier to find restaurants with food from all over the world than a typical one from there. The price is quite comparable to what we can find in the same type of establishments in Spain.

I don’t know whether to have a hamburger or something Asian for dinner…

During this second day we have spent around 23 euros. If we follow this rhythm during the first part of the World Cup, we could spend around 4,500 euros between the package we bought from Spain, transportation in Qatar, lunch and dinner outside the hotel and some other additional expense.

Yes Spain

qualifies for the round of 16 last
, are still available the two-game packages of said tie, with an estimated price of 3,500 euros. The departure would be on December 3 and return on December 7. With locations for two meetings, four hotel nights, of variable category, and possible cruises. In other words, the price for six games, four from Spain and another two from different teams, with 17 hotel nights, would amount to at least 7,500 euros.

The purchase process through official channels can still be managed from the FIFA website through Qatar Airways, although many packages have already sold out. The so-called quarterfinal, semifinal and last packages have already all been sold with Spain as ‘favourite team’ and, although they can still be purchased with other teams, most are no longer available either. Only the quarterfinal package, to witness two games of this tie, had an estimated minimum price of 3,650 euros, while the semifinal and last package cost almost 10,000 euros, for the matches between the four best teams and the duel for the title on 18 from December.
