Football fans will find a range of affordable accommodation at Qatar 2022 in November, tournament officials insist.
The Football Supporters Association, which represents England and Wales fans, has voiced concern over prices.
But the World Cup hosts are promising a “variety of price options”, with tariffs at the fan village from £66 a night, based on two sharing.
Options will also include “house cabins” that look like luxury sheds, and self-catering apartments in hotels.
The Barwa Al Janoub resort starts at £80, and serviced West Bay apartments are £260. A six-bed villa, for up to 12 people, is priced from £700, while Lusail apartments are £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 fiancee Paige Milian, 26, are likely to stay at a docked cruise liner in Doha, which is also available.
Rates at the four-star Poesia ship begin at around £136 a night.
A cabin with a double bed and bunks designed to sleep four on the five-star MSC Europa will cost £486 per night for a minimum four-night stay. Cruise births cost £260 to £385, with suites at £1,900 per night.
Qatar’s Supreme Committee for World Cup Delivery & Legacy confirmed that room prices will start at £66, with two sharing.
In all, the host country will deliver up to 130,000 rooms for the one million-plus fans they expect.
Accommodation is available alongside phased ticket sales from FIFA.
An organising committee spokesman said: “Accommodation has been designed to cope with the demand of any ticketed fan looking for a room.”
