Watch! Qatar unveils 6,000-cabin football World Cup fan village

The cabins were built on a 3.1 square-kilometer site, which housed a metro station, a bus stop, and a planned temporary restaurant and convenience store

Qatar unveiled on Wednesday a 6,000-cabin fan village in an isolated lot near its airports, an offering for housing toward the lower end of what's available for the upcoming World Cup just days away from starting.

The cabins were built on a 3.1 square-kilometer site, which housed a metro station, a bus stop, and a planned temporary restaurant and convenience store.

The area could in theory hold as many as 12,000 people if booked at capacity, officials said. The brightly colored cabins, each with thin walls, are designed to hold one or two people with twin beds, a nightstand, a small table and chair, air conditioning, a toilet and a shower inside.

Those staying at the Fan Village can expect a 40-minute commute to stadium sites.

In the lead-up to the tournament, concerns about hotel room space and high prices for the rooms available have trailed Qatar, which lacks hotel capacity for all teams, workers, volunteers and fans at the World Cup. So, Doha has created camping and cabin sites, hired cruise ships, and encouraging fans to stay in neighbouring countries and fly in for games.

Qatar has estimated it will have 130,000 rooms per day for the tournament.
