FOOTBALL FANS have had a sneak peek into the tiny Â£200-a-night shipping container-style rooms that await them in Qatar.
The World Cup is less than two weeks away with footie supporters set to descend on the small Gulf nation in their thousands.
Qatar have been frantically setting up infrastructure to handle the influx of supporters from across the world.
New images from the Al-Emadi fan village show just what travellers will be in for with shipping container-style rooms set up across the desert.
Pictures show the inside to be made up of either two single beds or a double bed inside cramped rooms.
Toilets, mini-fridge and tea and coffee-making facilities are also visible in the images.
Staff have been hard at work in recent weeks preparing the portable rooms, which are preparing to host up to 60,000 fans.
The rooms are all side-by-side and stretch across large fields as Qatar looks to make space for the mass of visitors.
Pictures also show large portable gazebos set up as dining halls for hungry fans.
Computer-generated images had previously given fans a insight into what they could expect.
Along with the unusual accommodation, the World Cup promises to be an unusual one for other reasons.
Due to Qatar’s strict alcohol laws, the regular tournament sight of drunk, shirtless fans will be less common.
Alcohol can only be sold and drank inÂ hotel restaurants and bars that have licences and fan zones at particular times.
It is not known if the fan villages where the portable rooms are will be included as areas where fans are allowed to drink.
The legal drinking age in the country is also 21 and bouncers are expected to ask for photo ID or passports before entry.
Qatar is also very strict when it comes it comes to drugs and anyone caught in possession could face severe penalties such as a long-term prison sentence or deportation.
The World Cup has been shrouded in controversy ever since it was awarded over the country’s view of homosexuality and human rights.
There’s also been anger over the amount of migrant workers who have died while building stadiums for the tournament.
Former FIFA President Sepp Blatter admitted earlier this week that awarding the World Cup rights to Qatar was a “mistake”.
